Hello,

I am the proud owner of a second hand i3 MK2 that has been since upgraded to the 2S. Included was the MMU1 kit that previous owner never installed or used.

From doing some extensive research on the prusa website it seems that the MMU1 was short lived and quickly replaced by the MMU2 kit.

I would like to try to use the MMU1 kit since I have it and it is unused, however I cannot find the assembly manual anywhere on the Prusa website, the closest I have been able to find is the disassembly of the MMU1 in the MMU2 assembly instructions.

any information would be greatly appreciated, thank you!

Thanks, maybe you can help me with another problem too.

Those instructions say :  Extruder body MM (new version) - QSM fittings and PTFE tubes are assembled in the factory. 

Only issue is that my Extruder Body was compromised, so i had to print a new one, which is fine, but the reason why i wanted the instructions was to figure out how to safely get those QSM fittings out of the old body..... so I can put them in the new Extruder Body I just printed.

Any ideas on how to do that?

Thanks!

I sorted it out, Heat Gun softened things up well, so i could easily remove them, then I used a small arbor press to carefully seat them back into the new body.  I'd still like to know what these inserts are specifically called so that I could procure a few extra, just in case.
