RE: Unofficial Prusa Mini Wait Thread

@tasnibal

"Glückspilz" 😀 hope you enjoy it. Mine got "shipped" a day before yours, and stucks now anywhere in Prague (after I asked the support if it's normal that it's shipped and 5 days later no physical printer in tracking)

So I hope I'll receive the mini this year. Bondtech upgrades and filament felt a little bit lonely under the Christmas tree. 

It’s better to give than to receive. Especially advice....

RE: Unofficial Prusa Mini Wait Thread

Hello everyone!

I just pre-ordered prusa mini + KIT, and its my first 3d printer. I m wondering is there any "must to do" upgrades, that's easy to upgrade while assembling the machine, like a heat break?

I would not upgrade anything until you try printing with it.  Anything you upgrade is going to complicate any discussions with online support.  Build it stock and get used to using it before you upgrade.

What he says, wait until you have used it for some time, in most cases no upgrades are needed. This way if you have issues warranty is not going to give you a hard time. If you mod it out of the box thats going to be tricky to deal with support people.

I agree with @cwbullet. First, I would test the Mini extensively in its original state. If everything runs properly, no upgrade is necessary (except the firmware).

I have two printers that I modified too soon and it has only been a nightmare to get them to work.

Thanks for replies! Its so confusing that everyone tells, thats a good printer and nevertheless youtube videos suggest some upgrades.

Prusa starts shipping on january or february so i have a plenty of time watch many youtube videos and practising modeling in fusion 😊

I ordered in the 3rd week of November but I got an email today saying that UK orders should be shipped out by the end of the year due to the Brexit situation.

One of the very few up sides of Brexit is that I might get my mini the earlier than scheduled!

Ordered the mini+ and extra roll of prusament on 17th December. Just received a text to say it will be delivered tomorrow! 

One of the upsides of the brexit at the moment 😉

How you manage that, that goes completely against the order page. I ordered on the 19th Dec so we shall see if I get an email in 2-3 days... amazing if I do, according to the page im looking almost March.

It's because I'm based in the UK and Prusa is trying to fulfil all the orders before tomorrow!

According to the email I got all UK orders got shipped out before the Brexit deadline. All new UK orders are now not being accepted until it's known how the new exporting arrangements work. I wasn't expecting mine until later in January. 

 

Mine arrived by DHL today. First layer calibration procedure done, printed the test whistle and it is absolute perfection. Really happy with it, a lot less faffing around than my old Creality printer 🙂

Looks like you are in Canada, so you'll be on the normal schedule.

That's ridiculous. It's like they decided to completely pause their normal delivery schedule for orders that weren't going to make it for Christmas. I ordered mine on Oct 27th, for which shipments should have started last week. Those that ordered 1, 2, and 4 days before me had theirs shipped almost 2 weeks ago. And with the holiday Friday, it probably won't even ship it before the new year, i.e. 10 weeks later, despite advertising 7-8 weeks back when I ordered it. And to think that I anticipated playing with it during my week off for New Year's 😞.

If you can try and post a pic, another member got his and its using moulded parts rather than the 3D printed parts to im interested to see if they are switching to moulded parts, they look so much better.

I can confirm the new parts are moulded. Funnily I didn't realised it until you mentioned it.

I ordered the MINI with filament option on Oct. 26 from the U.S. and am still waiting.  My separate spare parts order from Dec. 20th arrived the 29th.

 

When I ordered the MINI I though it came as the 3 part assembly.  For the people that ordered the MIN and got the the MINI+, did you get the kit or the 3 part assembly?

Currently the kit version is pre-order, so unless you specifically pre-ordered, yours will be the 3 part assembly.

I think I know, I don’t think I know. I don’t think I think I know, I don’t think I think....
