A cheap printer but needs also tech hands and sometimes luck

We own 6 of them and all have different issues over time. Compared to the other printers we use this is the one who needs most attention during a almost nonstop operation. For home and hobby usage it is affordable and ok. But when it comes to business environments i wouldn't buy it again.

My prusa i3 mk2s

Well, I got the kit prusa i3 mk2s which meant I had to build it. I have seen my 3D printer make some mistakes which I have fixed easily. The prints that I make look so good and I usually make on almost every day. When I have a question I would go on their website and type in what I need help with then I get these responses of people who are asking the same questions and tell you how to fix them. The software is great and I am pleased and impressed with my 3D printer everyday.

Great for newbie

Buying the Prusa kits was my entry into 3D printing.  The assembly instructions were thorough and the printer went together without a hitch.  My initial prints were rough as I learned to dial in my live Z.  I got a good profile from another user and my prints have been much improved.   The few failed prints I've had were the result of no brim or no supports.  Otherwise, the printer keeps on printing without any issues.

I have recommended this printer to friends because it works well out of the box and is readily upgrade-able.

Look no further for a better 3D Printer

Not only is the actual machine precise and reliable, but the same can be said about the community revolving around Prusa as well as the software, upgrades, and hardware. The build is very solid and it's pretty entertaining as well to put together with the kit. The instructions and manual are very clear and intuitive and the output is outstanding. Several upgrades have also been pioneered by Prusa and are available to upgrade any "outdated" (These printers really don't get outdated, just newer, more advanced models are released) printer with anything from a 5-Material Upgrade to a new innovative Heatbed design. Prusa has no limits to its innovation. Prusa not only has developed a slicer software specifically for their machines but has also developed a modded Slic3r version that works like a charm for those who prefer the Slic3r program. Additionally, not enough can be said about the customer service. There is a live chat feature on the Prusa website that allows users to ask questions in real time and the representative will stay on and walk you through how to fix any error. I've personally used this service about a dozen times while learning how to use the printer as a beginner. The results each time have been very quick and solve my errors in 5-20 minutes depending on the severity and I have never been even remotely disappointed. In summation, this is the right machine for anyone in the market and is more than worth every penny of the value.

Awesome product but not always user friendly.

The kit is very overwhelming  when you first get it.  The manuals and videos are great but it was still a very slow build for me.  I highly recommend that you  watch as many  assembly videos on You Tube as you can stand.  After building it and getting it to work I could not get anything to stick to the build plate.  I joined the Facebook Prusa Group.  Most people there are awesome. I learned that I just needed to  lower the nozzle and crush the extruded  filament a bit more. If that doesn't make sense, don't worry, it will. You would not believe the super quality of the 3D prints that come out of this machine now. I highly recommend  it.

Not for everyone, you need to be resourceful or wont get anywhere.

Hard to unstuck and assembly takes a lot of patience.  

The print quality is great.

simple and reliable

This printer is a great printer for a first time buyer, very easy to assemble, easy to use, simple user interface. Great for learning the principles of 3D printer. It is a modular system so there is a good upgrade-ability aspects. The auto bed leveling and heated bed are a big feature to consider when purchasing a printer. This tremendously improves the success rate of the print. One recommendation would be to invest in an enclosure. As being exposed the temperature difference of the heated bed and the room around it can cause the print to warp and fail. The simple enclosure of the "prusa ikea lark" enclosure is a cheap and affordable option.

very good printer

I have been 3d printing for a while and I can say for sure that the prusa i2MK3 is the most reliable and high quality 3d printer for its price. I loved the build experience and I think that anyone with the time should get the kit and learn about how it works firsthand.
