The Printer

from prusa3d.com – “The Original Prusa I3 MK3S is the successor of the award-winning Original Prusa i3 MK2 3D printer. With the rebuilt extruder, a plethora of sensors and the new magnetic MK52 heatbed with replaceable PEI spring steel print sheet.”

This is my first 3D printer and I can say that I have been completely happy with it.

I am going to use this page to add links to useful “stuff”.

New Printed Parts – MKI3S

This is a direct link to Prusa’s “Prusa i3 Printable Parts and Upgrades” – all of the Prusa printer upgrades including of course the one I am interested in, the MK3.

This is a direct link to an article on upgrading the Prusa i3 MK3 to the i3 MK3S. This page has links to downloading the parts that can be ‘self’ printed as well as illustrations of all of these parts, descriptions, instructions and so on.

The Extruder of Thesus

Look, when the kit instructions classify the assembly as “extremely difficult” and you’re fresh out of gummy bears, a lot of things can go wrong, and they did.
In this video I’ll show you my upgrade adventure as I perform the Prusa MK3s Extruder upgrade. I’ll also show you how I fixed things that went terribly wrong and how to troubleshoot some of the problems you might encounter.

In the video I mention a trouble shooting guide that Filip from Prusa Research clued me into:
In this guide there is a tip to look at a diagnostic that is a little hurried in the printer UI. Got to Support, then Sensors. Here you can see the status of the new sensor, which is super useful. (Huge thanks to Filip)

Hope you find it useful, or at least a little entertaining.
