GO BIG WITH THE ORIGINAL PRUSA XL!

Size comparison of prusa mini+, mk3s+ and Prusa XL

The Original Prusa XL runs on the latest embedded 32-bit platform with support for ultra-fast printing thanks to the native implementation of Input Shaper and Pressure Advance. Combined with the next-generation extruder, Nextruder, and its Loadcell sensor, the system can deliver an always-perfect first layer across the entire print surface - even in the five-head configuration! While the printer is compatible with our Prusa Connect network solution, it can be fully operated offline without any sacrifices in user comfort.




Five Prusa XL Nextruders next to each other on the printer

The toolchanger is what really sets the Original Prusa XL apart from other CoreXY 3D printers. The printer’s configuration allows for docking up to five toolheads and switching between them in a blink of an eye. You can preload up to five different filaments and truly take advantage of full multi-material printing. PLA combined with FLEX? PETG with PLA supports? The Original Prusa XL can deliver stunning results with ease - fast!

To further improve the quality and reliability of printing, the XL is equipped with a modular segmented heatbed driven by a separate electronic board. The heatbed consists of 16 individually controlled tiles designed to prevent heat deformation which is usually present in printers with a single large heatbed. You can always find the perfect print surface for your material with our proven double-sided print sheets with various types of surface textures.

With eight times larger print volume compared to the MINI+, no project is too big for the XL!

Efficient, Fast, Expandable

If you’re looking for a multi-material printer that won’t leave you with plenty of plastic waste on your hands, the Original Prusa XL has you covered. With five individual extruders, you can easily combine up to five filaments to print huge colorful objects - no matter whether you need a prototype for your client or just something cool to put on your shelf.

Switching between extruders is nearly instantaneous and there is very little waste because the XL doesn’t require a full wipe tower or a bin for plastic waste. All that is needed is a compact priming tower design to stabilize the pressure inside the nozzle. You can further reduce the amount of wasted filament by employing smart features from our PrusaSlicer, such as wipe to infill, which allows you to prime the nozzle into the object’s infill. With good dry filament, you can reduce the amount of plastic waste to an absolute minimum.

The machine is shipped with the latest available firmware featuring technologies such as Input Shaper, Pressure Advance and Precise Stepping. They all work together to further enhance the quality of the print and also to allow you to print much faster than ever before.

The Original Prusa XL can be further upgraded with additional extruders, so if you decide to start with a single-tool option, you can later expand it to two or five extruders with ready-made upgrade packages. An enclosure is coming soon as an optional upgrade.

Introducing the Nextruder!

Say goodbye to Live Adjust Z!

When designing the XL, we left no stone unturned. The Nextruder is the new generation of 3D printer extruders. With built-in electronics, featuring a dedicated CPU and a stepper driver directly in the print head, the Nextruder is controlled through a single-connector cable for easier maintenance. Fans, thermistors, the heater block and the extruder motor - this all connects directly to the board inside the print head.

The completely redesigned extruder assembly allowed us to implement a fully automatic first layer calibration for an always-perfect first layer. Thanks to the internally developed Load cell sensor embedded within the heatsink, the XL can measure the physical load in the heatsink and use the nozzle to probe the print surface. This way, the XL can utilize the load cell system to perform an incredibly precise height calculation for the first layer. No matter whether you just swapped the nozzle or the print sheet, there's no need to recalibrate anything. No Live Z, no manual adjustments. The XL delivers a perfectly smooth first layer every time you start a new print.

Filaments are no longer pushed by two small gears. Instead, we’re introducing a brand new planetary gearbox (1:10 ratio) with a large no-slip drive gear. This enables a higher level of control and also improves the compatibility with flexible materials. And there’s more: the nozzle and hotend are quick-swappable. The XL allows you to pull the entire hotend assembly out of the extruder without the need to disassemble it. We've also added another thermistor into the heatbreak, which allows us to adjust the temperature according to the material specs and also detect heat creep.

What we are proud of

Nextruder closeup

Nextruder

Built from the ground up, the Nextruder is a brand new extruder for Original Prusa 3D printers. Significantly lighter and packed with the latest technologies, including a minimal-backlash gearbox and no-slip drive gear, the Nextruder is designed to deliver top-notch performance and amazing-looking 3D prints.

LOW-WASTE Printing

The toolchanger and the Nextruder were designed specifically for efficient multi-material printing with minimal waste and super-fast operation. The XL allows you to combine multiple materials within a single print, can tackle FLEX filaments easily and requires only a compact priming tower to stabilize pressure inside the nozzle.

Toolchanger

The XL can be upgraded with up to 5 individual print heads, each driven by its own electronics board. The internally developed toolchanger uses a reliable wear-resistant system and easy tool alignment calibration ensuring millions of trouble-free tool swaps. This makes printing with multiple colors and materials quick and easy.

Power-loss recovery

Large prints can easily take many hours to finish. However, you don’t need to worry about power outages. The XL features hardware-based power-loss recovery. In case of a power failure, the XL stores the last known extruder location, so when the power is restored, the machine can pick up exactly where it left off - even with network prints!

Automatic First Layer Calibration

The Nextruder is equipped with the Load Cell function, which enables a fully automatic first layer calibration without ANY user intervention. No adjustments, no tuning. Before every print, the XL measures the distance between the nozzle and the sheet with pinpoint accuracy, so it delivers a perfect first layer every single time.

Wide range of supported materials

The XL 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 XL can handle them all with ease.
