What Does Older Machines Include?

Apr 10, 2018 1:53 pm

What is this forum topic for and what is considered "Older Machines"? The reason I ask is because a coworker's son received a Prusa REPRAP I3 3D printer as part of a course he's taking in school.
They are trying to learn more so I suggested that they look at this site mainly for general content to compare their issues. Now that they've added this tread is this where they can post questions?

Hi David,
this section is dedicated to the printers developed by Josef Prusa prior to the Original Prusa i3 MK2. Have a look on the Wiki page posted by Thomas to see, which of the printer your coworker's son has or post the picture of it here ;)

I had a prusa mk1. 1.75mm filament. 5mm standard threaded bar for z axis. Red pcb heat bed and glass surface for heat bed. Direct drive extruder

Before this was the mk0. 3mm filament with geared extruder

Yes, it looks to be a REPRAP "clone" maybe? There are several similar printers on Amazon. I just thought since it said PRUSA it was something from the beggining.
These are opensource so I guess they are just using the name.
