MK2 -> MK2.5S Upgrade printed parts
Hopefully I'm just being a bit thick here and a bit paranoid before pressing the buy button and doing the upgrade. In short, I'm happy with buying it, and hoping that I can then assemble it without too many problems, the big but comes in with the parts that need to be printed.
As my current one has a broken print bed, I can't really print any of the parts, and was wondering if there's somewhere in the e-store that I can buy them, because looking on a local print on demand site, it looks like to print all of them it's going to cost me more than the upgrade itself ! Anyone got a solution that they're somewhere in the shop and I haven't seen them, or had anywhere that can do them for me that isn't going to cost another €100 ?
Did you get yourself sorted out? If not, then after you have logged in to your Prusa shop account, you should see this page https://shop.prusa3d.com/en/63-plastic-parts
The fan shroud is already included with the upgrade kit, so you need 13 parts at $3.62 each.
Alternately, use the world map here on prusaprinters to find registered user close to you who offers help, and contact them, or post on any or all of the Facebook support groups, but give your general location to help people decide if they can assist (I am in Philippines, so doubt you are local to me - my help would cost you a Prusa Mini in shipping costs).

Thanks Bill !
I did have a look at those parts, but then got a bit paranoid that they aren't the same ones in the STLs on the upgrade page. Then I considered getting the upgrade and fitting the print bed and then printing the parts with a half assembled machine, until I realised that my son had kindly managed to do something with the extruder too, so the whole thing seems to be broken, it doesn't close anymore or hold any filament ... argh ... so maybe your suggestion of where to get someone else to help me out is the only solution 🙂 Fingers crossed 🙂
you could start by saying where you are located
@joantabb - very good point (doh) thanks. I'm in Munich, Germany
Maybe these guys can help you!
