Description

The Original Prusa i3 MK3S+ is the latest version of the award-winning 3D printers. Prusa have upgraded the MK3S with a brand new SuperPINDA probe for improved first layer calibration, added high-quality Misumi bearings and various useful design tweaks to make the printer easier to assemble and maintain. The MK3S+ includes all the proven features of the previous models, including the heatbed with removable PEI spring steel print sheets, automatic Mesh Bed Levelling, filament sensor, power loss recovery (power panic) and safety features. And it is still as silent as ever!

The functionality of the MK3S+ can be further enhanced by our unique Multi-Material Upgrade 2S for printing with up to 5 filaments simultaneously.

 

FEATURES

Main Features

SuperPinda Probe

 

SuperPINDA probe features a hiqh-quality sensor for a fully-automatic Mesh Bed Leveling process. Before every print, the MK3S+ probes the bed in several places and creates a virtual heightmap of the print area. This process ensures that the first layer will always be spot on!

Misumi Bearings & more

 

The MK3S+ features a new set of metal clips for the genuine MISUMI bearings on the Y-axis. The belt tensioning mechanism on the X-axis was reworked and the X-end plastic parts reinforced. The filament path in the extruder was altered for better support of flexible filaments.

Removable Print Sheets

Spring steel sheets are easy to maintain and make removing the printed object from the print surface a breeze. This unit comes with a smooth sheet, but we offer all three types of print surface: smooth, textured and satin. They are available to be purchased separately in our Prusa Shop. These options will cover all your needs when printing from a wide range of different materials – most of which do not require any special separation layers or surface preparation.

High-Quality Parts

The MK3S+ features an aluminum extrusion Y-axis assembly. Thanks to the milled dural frame, the MK3S+ is stable, rigid, and easy to assemble. Combined with the internally developed extruder featuring Bondtech gears and the E3D V6 hotend, the MK3S+ can print high-quality objects up to 210 mm in height.

Power Loss Recovery

Are you afraid of a blackout ruining your 48-hour print? Worry no more – the MK3S+ can deal with that! The printer can fully recover from the loss of power and continue printing exactly where it left off. It detects power interruptions and shuts down the heatbed and extruder heating, and saves the last known location.

Filament Sensor

The MK3S+ further enhances the reworked extruder from the MK3S. The built-in filament sensor uses a reliable trigger system, which detects whether a strand of filament is inserted into the extruder. It can detect any type and color of filament and is not susceptible to mechanical wear.

Mesh Bed Leveling

Thanks to the SuperPINDA probe, the MK3S+ can use the Mesh Bed Leveling process to compensate for microscopic imperfections of the print sheet, and inconsistencies caused by the assembly and stacking of the manufacturing tolerances of various parts. Achieving a great-looking first layer is quick and easy.

 

Slice with PrusaSlicer

Our internally developed multiplatform slicer comes with in-house made and fully tested profiles for all of our 3D printers and a wide range of filaments. With built-in tools, such as advanced support generation, cutting, automated object distribution, ironing and many others, you will turn your 3D models into print files in no time!

 

 

Support for a wide range of Materials

The MK3S+ is fully compatible with a wide range of various types of materials. No matter whether you want to print something for fun from PLA and flexible materials, or you need to produce durable prototypes from PETG, ASA, Polycarbonate and Polypropylene – the MK3S+ can handle them with ease.

Open-source Hardware & Firmware

Prusa have developed firmware for all Prusa 3D printers and test every new version thoroughly before release. Ongoing development and regular updates ensure that their machines are packed with useful features, such as print sheet profiles, automated calibration, Mesh bed levelling, advanced diagnostics, remaining print time estimation, Octoprint support and more!
