I have always been a fan of 3D printers. Even though they might not be the most efficient way to manufacture items in bulk, it is still fun to see your ideas come to life in 3D engineered plastic precision. Also, if a part of something I own breaks, I can replace that part with a 3D printed model! As technology advanced, it even became possible to print food with a 3D printer.
I have always wanted to print with an original Prusa printer, and now I will get the chance. Today I purchased the Prusa I3 MK2S 3D printer. The most promising feature of this 3D printer is the auto calibration. I just hate turning nuts to calibrate a 3D printer, which is time-consuming.
Before I continue, I would like to say that Prusa Research did not pay me to do these product reviews, and I am writing my own opinions. Also, before you continue, you should read my article about 3D printing here.
The Prusa I3 MK2S costs $599. It was declared printer of the year by Make Magazine for both 2017 and 2018. I purchased the kit version, which requires you to assemble. It shouldn’t be too much of a problem though since Prusa Research provides updated manuals both on paper and online.
The only bad thing about this printer so far is the shipping cost. Since the Prusa I3 MK2S is a heavy item shipping from the Czech Republic, shipping costs $57, which is a large price to pay for shipping.
The printer comes with excellent support according to their website, and I look forward to printing with it.
Be sure to stay tuned as I will be posting more as soon as the printer arrives!
