RE: Unofficial Prusa Mini Wait Thread

I have received a message from Prusa that DPD has not yet provided final information about the loss of my printer. However, I have been assured that a replacement will be sent at short notice. Therefore I have set my order (10-12-2020, black) back to "pending" and mark it again as "shipped" as soon as I see in the tracking that the parcel is on its way.

DHL states that the express parcel that was supposed to have been sent yesterday is not supposed to arrive here until Monday - apparently it is transported on foot.. 😉

@gordon-w Thank you 🙂

I must say, I have surprisingly good top layer (PLA). It is very smooth. I compared it to my previous printer's result and consulted with my coleague who owns MK3S and he confirmed the result is extraordinary.

There was one order from 4.Feb marked as shipped in our spreadsheet yesterday.

Two orders were marked as delivered.

My mini order from 6 February is on it's way to Australia with DHL.

Currently undergoing it's second "Customs" event hope that doesn't slow it down too much.

Maybe Australian customs thinks a Prusa is some type of fruit? 😀

This may be why Artillery renamed their company briefly to Evnovo. The story is that big boxes labeled "Artillery" were getting undue attention. As long as the bad guys clearly lable all munitions, we should be safe!

RE: Unofficial Prusa Mini Wait Thread

Just ordered another Mini (Black this time) and added it to the spreadsheet.  There's been almost 100,000 orders between 5-18 and 6-26.  And 225,000 orders since 4-11 when I ordered the MK3S.  Oddly, both Mini's are scheduled to ship in September.

I'm getting to know my MINI. I'm susspect it to always always mess up the first print right now. I'm investigating it.

When I print from cold state. The Z starts too high causing the first layer to not stick. When I stop it, clean the non-sticked layer and and s print again, all is ok the second time. I'm not sure whether it's the bed not stabilized yet in the hot state, the hotend or even the MINDA needing to get heated first. Right now the first print's firsti layer is always wrong.

I have the 4.1rc1 firmware (the one to be released soon)

RE: Unofficial Prusa Mini Wait Thread

I feel you, this first layer inconsistency cold vs hot is a bit annoying. I tend to squish first layer down too much IMO, but then printing next thing and I get ripples, adjusting it up.

I found here on this very forum nice article about MINI experience, there's also good starter gcode that preheats printer while it is parked in the middle. I am sorry I canmot credit, I forgot who posted it here. If you read this, you have my thanks.

RE: Unofficial Prusa Mini Wait Thread

Interestingly, I don't have any first layer issues. I had them very strongly on my previous "ANET A8" printer, but none on the Mini (using smooth sheet). I had some minor issues in the filament path, with it sometimes getting stuck at the fittings, but that has gotten much less prevalent after some use and loosening up the fittings and filament sensor screws a bit. I also have no problems having folders on my USB drive, however my current print is always located in the root folder and the other folders are just for old gcode files. Hot-Plugging, autodetecting of new gcode files works fine for me.

I'm amazed by the print quality of the mini, and I love that I can just pick it up and put it in another room when I want to avoid the print fumes. Even PLA gives me headaches and a funny feeling in my throat.

So I can say I am throughly enjoying my new mini!

I switched from PLA to PETG now, and I can say it doesn't create any print fumes so far. I'm using the standard settings in Prusa-slicer.

RE: Unofficial Prusa Mini Wait Thread

Hope everyone is surviving in this crazy new world we live in.  I realized it has been a month since I posted anything and just wanted to drop by and let everyone know that my Prusa-Mini continues to kick butt on a daily basis.   

I'm looking forward to the Prusa XL, to the new "Unofficial Prusa XL Wait Thread" in the forum and to the nice long wait till it ships after we finally get to order it.  😉 

All your filament are belong to us!...
