I suspect JP is very reluctant to say much given how quickly the Chinese cloners work. Prusa releases their hardware (FFF at least) as open source, but that doesn't mean they're required to divulge everything in advance. JP has said as much in some of the older videos. I'm sure when they release a new product, they want at least a few months to try to recoup their R&D investment. The alternative would be to go closed-source, and even then hinting at new product features can be a dicey proposition.

Good point.  Maybe we will see a better, larger Prusa.  After fighting with my ender-3 and CR-10S pro, I am done with Creality.

I very nearly pulled the trigger on a Creality Ender 3 and Anycubic i3 Mega recently. I don't have a major need for a 2nd printer, but it would be handy and I am curious about the non-Prusa experience. After reading reviews of life with other printers, I've realized I'll just be pissed off with all the fiddling. I'm also curious to see what Prusa comes out with, but I'm not holding my breath.

Personally, I'd like a dinky desktop printer (150x150x150) for a 2nd. Not what everyone wants I realize.

I could see this.  I have three Chinese made printers and it takes a lot of fiddling.

--newer geared bondtech

--stronger hot end fan

--include some of the awesome mods created by the user community like a bigger motherboard box, LCD cable clips - those were my two frustrations on my install, stuffing the cables in the einsy box and trying to fit the LCD cables in the extrusions. 😛

--standard V6 heatbreak, put the special MMU V6 heatbreak in with THAT kit. 

--maybe just a tad bigger? 🙂 

I don't care if there's a touchscreen. 🙂

Just to spitball a little

I would like to see a nice size touch screen a more powerful MCU. Would like to see a Prusa Twist on the Ender 5 style printer. Would like to see it have a built in Wifi printing and monitoring software ( get rid of Octoprint it is too cumbersome and not specific to machine)  

Would like to see the added feature of auto cool down and shutdown when print is complete this will help energy cost and unwanted run/idle time on hardware. This could be an on or off option for user to select.

Would like to have an option menu that would allow for a delayed start option to better manage prints. 

Would be nice to have a audible sound when print is done.

Would be nice to have a sort of fan cover for heat break fan. It homes so far to the left it is hard to design anything that would work.

Thanks for your time, thats all i have for now.

At this stage, I would settle for a flat bed. Software compensation is cool and all, but when you're printing jigs and tools, a flat reference surface would be a great starting point.

So, maybe 9 point micro adjustment on the heatbed or something? So we can really dial in that first layer!

I could go with build-in wifi and octoprint.  I would love to see Plugins.
