Drivers 2.0.0 with support for Original Prusa i3 MK3!  

Jakub Dolezal

UPDATE: there is a newer version of the driver package

Hi guys,
starting this release of our driver's package we are adding support for Original Prusa i3 MK3! Support continues for MK2/S/MMU. Included are settings, drivers, printable models, Pronterface and slicing software Slic3r Prusa Edition (stable release) and PrusaControl (beta release).

What is new?

1. New print settings for Original Prusa i3 MK3
Both Slic3r PE and PrusaControl were updated with settings for MK3. Our newest 3D printer includes updated electronics (look for Trinamic2130 drivers in this article) and more rigid frame, which allow great improvement in printing speeds. See below comparison from Slic3r PE on profile NORMAL, where for example travel speed doubled and infill speed went up 3-4x!!!

2. Added sample models for Original Prusa i3 MK3
The package for MK3 includes well-known models from MK2 (Adalinda, Batman, Buddy, Gear Bearing, ...), but our team didn't stop there, the majority of them were tweaked for faster printing times compared to MK2. The bigger and more complex the model is, the faster it prints on MK3, see as an example Castle, which is down to 9 hours from 17 hours!

Also please welcome our newest addition to printable models The Sun Queen Nefertiti 😮

So, are we to assume that Original Prusa i3 mk2 with Zhop is now just Original Prusa i3 mk2?
