Thanks to our own implementation of Input Shaper and Pressure Advance technologies in the MK4’s firmware, the printer can eliminate resonance in prints and predict the flow of the filament. The result is a decrease in print time by up to 70% compared to MK3. What's more, the printer is very quiet even at these speeds - check out the sub-20-minute Benchy video. Support for high-speed printing is just around the corner via a firmware update - read the blog post here.
Thanks to the precise Loadcell sensor, MK4 can lay down a perfectly smooth and consistent first layer automatically without any user input. At the beginning of a print, the printer taps the sheet with the nozzle in a grid-like pattern to measure the distance and then calculates the correct offsets. The result is a perfect first layer on every surface, without manual adjustments.
Extruder is the heart of every 3D printer. And this is a special one. On most 3D printers today, replacing extruder components is a rather complicated process. With the new connector break-out board inside the Nextruder, all of the parts, such as fans, heaters, thermistors, etc., are connected directly there. If you need to swap anything, it takes just a minute.
Our new xBuddy board is a 32-bit STM32-powered mainboard with many great features. It has several unique hardware-based safety protection systems, communicates with four thermistors, has all important ports (Ethernet, Wi-Fi, works with USB-A flash drives) and more. The entire board was designed, manufactured, and tested in-house.
The MK4 comes with redesigned, more robust plastic parts and new precise 0.9° stepper motors (0.9° / step; low inductance) on the X and Y axes that help eliminate Vertical Fine Artifacts on prints. Plus, there are thicker 10mm rods on the Z-axis. The result is, that prints look better than ever and even printing with “problematic” filaments like Flex is a breeze.
MK4’s display supports G-code thumbnails, QR codes and other elements that make using the printer so much easier. We also redesigned many of the existing menus and added a customizable footer panel. Directly under the LCD, there is an RGB status bar to signalize the current status of the printer. Next to the LCD, there’s a USB-A port for standard USB flash drives.
Thanks to two quick-release thumbscrews on the side of the body of Nextruder, which holds the nozzle in place, you can swap nozzles easier than ever. The MK4 is using special nozzles with an all-metal filament guide (no PTFE tubes anywhere), which improves the overall reliability of the printer. Simple Nextruder-to-V6 adapter is available.
Our internally developed multiplatform slicer comes with in-house made and fully tested profiles for all of our 3D printers and a wide range of filaments. With built-in tools, such as organic supports, cutting, automated object distribution, ironing and many others, you will turn your 3D models into print files in no time!
The MK4 is fully compatible with a wide range of various types of materials. No matter whether you want to print something for fun from PLA and flexible materials, or you need to produce durable prototypes from PETG, ASA, Polycarbonate and Polypropylene - the MK4 can handle them without any problem.
MK4 is, along our other 3D printers, fully supported by Prusa Connect, which allows you to control the printer via internet. You can drag-and-drop G-Codes into the browser window to upload print files first into the cloud (each user gets 1 GB for free) and then transfer it into the printer’s USB storage and start the print remotely. All communication is encrypted.
We offer 24/7 tech support via live chat and email in seven languages. Our printers come with detailed instructions and guides for easy assembly and maintenance. You can also visit our knowledge base, community forum, Facebook groups and official Blog, where we publish useful 3D printing tips and tricks, contests and more!
The MK4 assembly kit is an excellent first step into the world of 3D printing. You will get to know your 3D printer inside out and find out how it works! The assembly is quite easy, requires no soldering, all cables are cut to length and ready to be plugged in. The assembly instructions are easy to follow and all of this makes the kit very friendly to younger builders, too!
Original Prusa 3D printers are well-known for their reliability and safe operation. Every part of our printers is thoroughly tested in-house. The MK4 is equipped with four thermistors and comes with a custom-built high-quality Delta power supply. The printer can recognize issues with heating and stop operation to prevent damage.
All parts of our printer are open-source, which means we publish all source codes and blueprints online. The community around our products is huge and the feedback is overwhelmingly positive - don't believe us? Check out Facebook groups and YouTube videos! There's so much to do with your 3D printer - buying it is just the beginning!
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 700+ team now. We develop our own hardware and software, invent, improve, tinker, experiment and do all sorts of awesome stuff. Read more on this page.
One of the most popular features of the Original Prusa concept is upgradability. When you buy our 3D printer, you can upgrade it later to a newer version, so you don't need to buy a whole new model every two years like, for example, your phone or laptop. We also keep supporting our 3D printers with regular firmware updates that bring new features!
Original Prusa Enclosure is an accessory for your 3D printer that houses your Original Prusa MK4 and provides a stable printing environment. The Enclosure helps to reduce odors from certain materials, lowers noise, can be equipped with useful addons.More details
