Prusa i3 printer

The Prusa i3 is a 3D printer at Quelab. It was built when the RepRap caught fire; Ben K and Morgan G worked through a long night to get the carcass of the old RepRap disassembled and a new shell made.

It's pretty fly.

Parts & attribution

Most hardware was salvaged from the RepRap printer. Only a few parts have been purchased or scavenged from outside sources.

Parts used (to some degree of knowledge):

Parts were laser cut on OUR LASER CUTTER with OUR SCRAP! And it looks pretty good all things considered.


The glass takes FOREVAAAH to heat up. Give it 10 minutes to come to temp after the thermistor reads the preheated values. This will help with bed adhesion.
