Notes on the Prusa i3 MK3S

Tags:3dprinting,tech

The Prusa i3 MK3S is the 3d printer I use most often. It's good, but there are some thing that aren't super well spelled out about it.

Bed Materials

Prusa claim that either bed material works for all printing materials. This is a lie. PLA is very annoying to print on the textured sheet, so if you are printing PLA, get a PEI sheet. Seriously.

Bed Level Correction

If your prusa i3 MK3s is built from a kit, DO A MANUAL BED LEVEL ADJUSTMENT. I didn't do one for ages after having mine and doing it cleared up 99% of my print problems. You can find prusa's guide to doing it here:
