By assembling the printer, you will get a solid knowledge of the 3D printing process. This learning experience will come in handy when replacing a part or upgrading the device.
Prusa i3 MK3S is suitable for working with a wide range of materials such as PLA, PET, NYLON, ASA, and a variety of other filaments.
The device is equipped with an extra-silent fan for printing with PLA-type materials and greatly contributes to dealing with problems such as stringing and warping.
To ensure high reproducibility, we recommend installing an enclosed print chamber. This way, the print quality won't be affected by temperature fluctuations as a result of drafts and other factors.
