Desert Island Parts Box

May 18, 2018 1:44 am

Ok so I don't exactly live on a desert island but Moose Jaw Canada is pretty damn close when it comes to getting spare parts. So besides your standard box of printed pieces, what would you, the more experienced printing community at large, deem as must have spare parts for your Mk3 so your printer isn't offline for two weeks while your new bits arrive from Prague.

Full disclosure. This is my first and only 3d printer and I bought the kit. I has been working great but a partially clogged nozzle that didn't respond the any of the common fixes left it idle for a couple of weeks. A blowtorch to the removed nozzle ultimately solved the issue but I don't know if my next break will be that easy to fix.

Thanks in advance

Trevor

Awesome. Thanks for the starter list.

Of course I don't bother to ask these questions until after I put in an order to the Prusa shop. Hopefully nothing goes south until I am ready to get more consumables.

Hopefully a few more folks from the local area catch on to this 3d printing thing. I have been preaching the gospel of the Mk3 ever since I got it, trying to do my part. :)
