The clones have begun:

The Prusa clone on Aliexpress

Good spot! Its a little pricey for an clone with shipping and tax's, its also pre-order as well.

It will be very interesting to see the reviews once they ship.

I wonder if I ordered a clone if it would beat my original order getting to me 🙂

The margins Prusa are getting on the Mini must be pretty thin, considering the clones aren't *that* much cheaper. Compare to the MK3S where they're like half the cost..

Yes I was only joking - I’m a virgin prusa owner (to be) and from what I’ve read the support that comes wirh their products is like no other -  any saving on the base cost would be outweighed by the first support call or replacement part  I would imagine

@lemm_uk

thats what i thought when i saw it. If I add shipping and Taxes, I'm nearly at the Price of the original Prusa. so why should i order the clone anyway? The Clone-guys have to work harder than that! 😉

They're probably testing the market to see if there is a price premium for being able to deliver in less than a month.

No tools listed. You also have to provide the printed parts, which may be an issue for a large part of the target market for the mini!

Printed parts what? Are we talking about genuine Prusa MINI?

The Aliexpress vendors generally sell printer "kits" without the printed plastic parts (nor Haribo bears). You are expected to source your own.

My question was on the genuine printer. Whether there are arme tools like pliers or tweezers of any kind

Oh sorry. The Prusa mini comes with a hex key and a wrench for the nozzle, no other tools.

Luckily...  You don't need any other tools.  It has everything you need to print your first test print.   Other printers come with a "scraper" of some kind... this printer doesn't need it thanks to the flex-steel print surface.

All your filament are belong to us!...

I use cutting pliers and tweezers often. I wondered wheather I can give away away the ones I have with my temporary printer or not.

Hah! I wasn't replying to you at all, just writing stream of consciousness thoughts on the Mini clones. I was just thinking how even less worth it the clones are due to the savings being so much lower.

To add to your reply, you're also supporting the folks that pay engineers and developers, and then open source all this stuff - moving the industry forward - in the first place.
