Hello

I currently own two printers, a Original Prusa MK2S and a Vivedino Raptor 2.0.

My plan is to sell my Raptor and add a coreXY and a couple of prusa mini´s.

but need some advice on which corexy.....(i know there will be a prusa corexy down the line, and this will most likely be added to the collection:) )

 

i have narrowed it down to these printers:

  • Voron 2.2
  • V-baby (by Roy berntsen)
  • SecKit
  • BLV mgn cube

i want the printer to have these qualifications:

  • Just works, print after print, little/easy maintained
  • can print most filamaments (TPU is a bonus, i know most of these have bowden)
  • removable flex plate system
  • price range up to $1000

bonus:

  • good build manual
  • established forum/users
  • can be bought as a kit

 

anyone have the printers above and can give some insight? Or tips regarding other corexy printers on the market

I was just reading this article yesterday when I was curious what does acronym "HEVO" mean:  https://mechlab.cc/which-corexy-voron-vs-v-king-vs-d-bot-vs-hypercube-evo/ Maybe it will help you to get general overview? It is few months old (well almost a year) and things have evolved since.

@ hans-oystein-b

Did you progress?

Prusa delay its release date for a bigger printer and there is a lot of uncertainty. I think my need couldn't wait so long. I may go to an other temporary solution.

My requests are more or less like yours:

  • Bell and whistle from the Prusa MK3:
    • Flex build plate
    • Autoleveling
    • Direct drive
    • Not a teflon lined hotend like the Prusa mini
  • Non-Chinese
  • established forum/users
  • can be bought as a kit
  • workhorse (Just works, print after print, little/easy maintained)
