Original Prusa i3 MK3S vs MK3 + important links

Jan 12, 2018 9:05 am

Hi,
it is very important to learn the difference between MK3S and MK3, as they aren't the same printers!
MK3 uses B7/R3 extruder design with Optical filament sensor => Needs its own MK3 firmware
MK3S uses different extruder design and brand new IR-sensor => Needs a different MK3S firmware


Please keep this mind! Flashing incorrect firmware will cause issues with the IR-sensor!

Think waiting is bad now..

Your printer will arrive. You will get it ready to print... once it is running you will stare at it for ages. Wonderinn how it decides how to lay down tbe filament....

Aftter a number of models. You may dind yourself printing tge castle at 0.050 layer height .. .

And then it will start....


If only you had a second printer, more colours;different filaments.....

It is a slippery slope

You will start talking 3d printing. You will start ptinting parts to repair things... then to upgrade things. Then make things to protect your filament... boxes for your tools...

YOU ARE HOOKED...


:-)

THERE IS NO CURE

Have fun...

Joan, you are sooo right.

You want to leave work early, go to bed late. Show your better half all the nice things you have printed, she will of course not understand what you are talking about.

A good tip, cancel the order and still have a life..

But wait there's more...all the people that want you to make them something and think it will only take a few minutes at most. You say "3D Printer" and they hear "Star Trek Replicator". Then your appreciation of time begins to waver. It starts with "It took 17+ HOURS to print that dinky little castle!" to "What's 90+ hours? Walk in the park." Then the anal retentiveness to detail starts at "Not too shabby." as you look at a model full of over extrusion, blobs, and lousy first layer to "OMG! Total failure. Gotta tweak my settings." as you look at one barely visible bit of stringing between two points.

Oh the fun you will have.

This person speaks truth.

After the sample prints I wanted to put the printer through its paces, so I printed a near max height one of these https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2666281 at .1 layer height, no spiral mode. I forgot to turn 20% infill off, but let it fly anyway (mistake). 50.5 hours later I had a beautiful blue vase and half my sanity.

Well done!
I was wondering why this hadn't been done yet.
Seems to me that it "could" save people a bunch of time.
Not to mention Tech Support questions. :)
