One of the most popular features of Original Prusa i3 concept is upgradability. If you buy our 3D printer, you can upgrade it later to the new version, so you don't need to buy the whole new model every two years as you get used to with your phone or laptop. ;-)
We provide high-quality print settings with the printer and we are developing our own slicing software. In PrusaSlicer you can set everything you want. It's very easy to use and we are adding new features regularly.
We didn't want to leave anything to chance, so our assembly instructions are pictured to the smallest detail. All fasteners and mechanical parts have 1:1 drawing so you can easily find them, and there is no chance of you picking a wrong one.
Assembling the kit is an excellent first step to the world of 3D printing. You will understand the principles of printer construction and get a huge advantage when you need to solve possible problems and replacements later.
Prusa Research is a 3D printing company based in Prague, Czech Republic. It was founded in 2012 by Josef Prusa, one of the core RepRap developers, as a one-man startup and grows to a 600+ team now.
This book will help you understand what kinds of 3D printing technologies are currently available and how they work. We will take you through the whole process of 3D printing, starting with obtaining a printable 3D model, through the pre-printing preparations, to the final post-processing of a printed object. You will learn what an extruder is, as well as slicing, perimeters or infill. We’re going to explain the differences between commonly used materials, and how to utilize 3D printing for practical application. This book will give you a very good understanding of 3D printing and also provide you with all the basic knowledge required to start. The only thing remaining will be to buy a 3D printer and start printing!
