Prusa Noise

Hello!

So I just finished building the mk3s+ kit and it seems to be printing just fine, but it's a lot louder than I was expecting. My last printer (the Artillery Sidewinder X1) was virtually silent and the Prusa sounds a lot more like what I was used to from a 3D Printer of the past.

I'm wondering if there's perhaps something I did wrong in assembly or if that is just what the printer sounds like during operation.

I've attached a video. It doesn't sound like anything is wrong necessarily, but it's just not what I expected.

I appreciate any help you guys can give me.

I did not. It told me a couple times in the build guide not to and the bearings seemed well lubed out of the bag.

I would still check if the linear ball bearings are sufficiently greased. Some batches (Misumi) are only provided with an anti-corrosion agent, which is not suitable for continuous operation.If in doubt, I would contact the Prusachat and clarify this (warranty claims).

RE: Prusa Noise

Problem could be , on what is your printer standing,

a table could make the noise get worse.
