The Original Prusa i3 is a printer for the lifetime :) The same way as we did with the 3mm to 1.75 mm upgrade, we come once again with the upgrade opportunity. This one is properly monstrous!

What is new?

  • 250x210x200mm edge to edge printing
  • PEI build surface, no maintenance
  • E3D V6 full with no PTFE in heaterblock, faster printing and 300°C limit
  • Z axis with integrated leadscrews as motor shaft (no couplings)
  • Beefier extruder motor allowing faster printing
  • Full automatic mesh bed levelling (compensating even for the curvature of the bed)
  • Bed is screwed to the Y axis at 6 points, no adjustment wheels
  • Sturdier frame, end of PSU cover is attached to the Y axis
  • X and Y endstops are screwed to the parts, Z probe on extruder
  • Better cooling of the prints which does not cool down the heater block
  • Improved extruder body which allows to remove and work on the nozzle without complete disassembling the whole thing :-)
  • Better belt attachment system
  • Better LCD cover, preventing users from touching the SD card slot and discharging static into the LCD
  • Better LCD cable mounting with printed clips (too tight Zipties breaking the cables caused 90% of the LCD problems we've seen)
  • Possibility to adjust the X-ends distance
  • Better electronics cover with hinged door and better cable support
  • Cover for the heatbed cables on the bed
  • 3 zone heatbed, where corners heat more to have more even heating and possibility to print at the edge of the area
  • NO MORE GLASS!
  • NO MORE ABS JUICE!
  • NO MORE BINDER CLIPS!

The upgrade includes:

  • All the new MK2S printed parts
  • Fully assembled E3D V6 Full hotend
  • The complete motor set
  • Brand new heated bed MK42
  • Autocalibration probe
  • All the fasteners necessary
  • Assembly and firmware upgrade guide

Plus the upgrade includes all the parts from MK2 to MK2S upgrade kit as well:

  • Polished smooth rods
  • 10x LM8UU bearings
  • 3x U-bolts for LM8UU mounting
  • Misc. fasteners
  • 3.5mm drill bit
  • PET printed cable holder part

We would like to stress that the upgrade consists of diassembling the printer completely and rebuilding it back together with the new components. Unfortunately there are no partial upgrades possible (e.g. just the heatbed) because due to the bigger build volume it is necessary to change all the printed parts. It is also mounted on the carriage fully so it is necessary to use the induction probe which needs the new extruder. Also, if the extruder and motors are not switched for the new ones, the new print settings will not work as they count on the higher speed and new precision on the printer.

The upgrade is compatible with the Original Prusa i3 1.75 mm printers with LCD and with RAMBo mini 1.3 or RAMBo mini 1.0 (new electronics cover will not be compatible here). If you own a printer with a different version or you are not sure, please do not hesitate to contact us.
