ORIGINAL PRUSA MINI
SMART AND COMPACT 3D PRINTER FOR EVERYONE!
Original Prusa MINI – smart and compact 3D printing workhorse with all the bells and whistles you’re accustomed to when you buy an Original Prusa 3D printer. MINI will surprise you. 🙂 It has a print volume of 18 cm (7”) cubed, removable spring steel sheets, ethernet and optional Wi-Fi and it’s based on our brand new custom-made 32-bit Buddy mainboard with silent 2209 Trinamic drivers. And we pushed the price under 350 USD / 380 EUR (VAT incl.)!
ORIGINAL PRUSA MINI FEATURES
The most significant features of Original Prusa MINI
Featuring a 7″×7″×7″ (18×18×18 cm) build volume, the MINI is a fully-equipped 3D printer. Featuring sensorless homing, automatic Mesh Bed Calibration, replaceable nozzles, network connectivity, USB printing and a full-color LCD screen, the MINI is a big printer in a small body.
COLOR LCD SCREEN
Configure your 3D printer with ease and see previews of sliced models before you start printing! Thanks to the 2.8’’, 240×320 LCD screen with 65.000 colors, every option is just a few clicks away.
The MINI comes standard with an ethernet RJ45 port and optional future ESP Wi-Fi module upgrade. Send files to the printer wirelessly, or download OTA firmware updates. Thanks to the future updates you will be able to manage a whole print farm easily.
Every part we use is thoroughly tested in-house. This is why our 3D printers are highly reliable and safe to use. The MINI is equipped with three thermistors and comes with a high-quality power supply (Delta or Mean Well – depending on region) for safe and reliable information.
With a footprint of 38×33 cm (15×13 in), the MINI is an incredibly compact, yet fully equipped 3D printer, allowing you to stack several machines onto a single shelf. No matter whether you’re limited by space, or you want to build a printing farm – the MINI has a perfect size.
FLEXIBLE PRINT SHEETS
Removing a print has never been easier! With the magnetic heatbed and removable spring steel sheets, you can remove a printed object merely by bending the steel sheet. The surface is easy to maintain and comes in two variants: smooth and textured.
Once you insert a USB drive with a sliced object, a new menu with an object preview window appears. Confirm the selection with a single click of the control wheel and watch the printer do the rest for you.
To decrease the weight of the extruder, we moved the extruder motor on the Z-axis column. Using a 3:1 drive gear ratio, the printer pushes the 1.75 filament strand through a PTFE tube into the hotend and through the 0.4mm nozzle.
32BIT CONTROLLER STM32
More power, more options. Our brand new custom-made 32-bit “Buddy” motherboard with Trinamic 2209 drivers brings more bang for your bucks. It’s capable of nearly everything OctoPrint can do, including farm management software (future firmware update).
