Quelle est cette PRUSA i3 ?

Bonjour,

Je viens de récupérer une Prusa i3, cependant, je ne connais pas le modèle.. C'est une vieille i3, sans plastique orange (ils sont blancs..), le cadre est à nu.. Apparemment, elle n'a pas servi depuis longtemps.. peut-être l'une des premières..

Si vous aviez des renseignements par rapport à cette machine, je suis preneur ! Merci 🙂

RE: Quelle est cette PRUSA i3 ?

that looks like a clone of an early Prusa. 

what controller board does it have? 

does it use 1.75mm pilament, or 3mm filament?

the geared extruder is a little like the Mk0  Prusa (Which used 2.85/3.00 mm filament). 
the Mk1 Prusa i3 had a 1.75mm extruder that was not geared.

the heatbed looks like a copy of the prusa bed, which I believe was Black. 

does the display reveal any information when the printer is turned on?

I try to make safe suggestions,You should understand the context and ensure you are happy that they are safe before attempting to apply my suggestions, what you do, is YOUR responsibility. Location Halifax UK...

Thanks for your reply, Joan. Sorry, I thought it was a french subforum.. I therefore continue in english..

Well, it seems to be an Arduino Mega 2560 board, I can communicate through COM port with Ultimaker Cura. I fiddled a bit the system as some of the sensors looked in bad shape.. I also totally cleaned up the nozzle that contained some old over-cooked material.. I got a roll of FormFutura material, PLA, 2.85mm.. Strangely, the wire motor does not rotate anymore.. it used to work and for some reason, it does not drag the wire into the nozzle anymore.. I have to check some more.. 🙂

>>does the display reveal any information when the printer is turned on?

I forgot to mention.. there's no display at all.. I just have thermal sensors feedback through Cura..
