This is and will, for a long time, still be one of the main reference points for 3D printing. The Prusa i3 MK2 version has improved a lot compared to the first Prusa, by Josef Prusa himself;
Among the improvements, we can mention the increased printing area, the increase in printing speed and other technological miracles.
Prusa i3 MK2: Features
The first of these miracles is the system. In fact, through the leveling sensor, we will not need to build the printer perfectly. Why? Because through the leveling, we will know how to recognize the “out of square” and we will print anyway in a perfect way.
Another very interesting feature is the possibility of having 1, 2 or 4 extruders. They allow the use of four-color printing, using a single extruder and therefore without the loss of printing area. Like all the new features, this one also pays quite a lot, the KIT of 4 extruders costs as much as a Chinese press kit: 269.00 euros.
Prusa is, as already mentioned, synonymous with RepRap 3D printers, but in reality it is the surname of the designer, Josef Prusa. I3 is the main version of this printer, and Mk2 is the latest incarnation. No, I don’t know why it’s not an i4, especially when some, less original printer manufacturers have already done marketing with that name.
Details accuracy is very important in 3D printing. Something that is also very missing in the thinking of the machines. This printer has that nerd detail that is DNA. Everything about the printer has been carefully thought out.
All in all, it’s a very well cared for printer and rather easy to assemble, with good assistance and if purchased from the official website we could receive it at home after just 2 days.
