dimensions of the XL

Does anyone know the external dimensions of the XL? I need to rebuild my storage unit.

RE: dimensions of the XL

the build dimensions are posted at 36×36×36 cm (14.17’’×14.17’’×14.17’’)

but the enclosure and operating dimensions are not 100% yet and will likely still change.

From what I read in the comments of one of the videos, someone extrapolated what the dimensions would be based on known things nearby (kind of like doing mildot calculations for sniping when you need to figure out distance to target).  According to that, it appears to be approximately 60cm wide by 60cm deep by 68cm tall (depending on the tool head cable assembly).

But really, you have 6-9 months to build a cabinet and they will release the details once set way before they ship 😉

I like the idea that it is already partly enclosed, meaning whatever extra is built can be really snug fitting around it

I can't imagine that the outer dimensions will change. As I understand the information so far, software and sensor adjustments are still being made. As well as the saving of supplier parts.

it appears to be approximately 60cm wide

presumably without fiament spools...

Apparently 80x80cm and 90cm high, including spool holders on both sides. Source:

I think that's the build plate.

Any possibility that there could be a heated chamber with 5 1kg spools beneath the printer feeding up the back of the printer to the different tool heads?

I do not think they have announced the external dimension.

They have estimated them in the Prusa Live. But not officially announced them

Prusa Live stream and they "estimated" dimensions... I watched it and it was kinda embarasing to say the least. It was dedicated to XL, but printer couldn't be seen, because it was out of camera angle.. I mean, seriously?
And when someone asked about dimensions, they started guessing..and concluded "it's about 80x80cm.. but that's not dimension of the printer.. it's the space needed to use printer... comfortable..". Again, what kind of answer is that?
I can understand, that some specs can't be revealed before production starts (or even after that). But printer dimensions for sure doesn't fall into this category. Luckily nobody asked about printer weight...

RE: dimensions of the XL

I think they are waiting for the enclosure finalization to release any sizes.  It is the only reason I can surmise.  It could also be kept close to the vest to limit clones.  Who knows!
