Help with MMU2 installation and finding correct manual.

Hi there, thank you all in advance for any help with this.

I have a Prusa MK3 and MMU2  (version R3????). 

I am attempting to adding MMU2.  (I purchased them both at the same time but had to wait for months to get the MMU2 so I was unable to install it when it came. Its now been MANY months since I have received it (had it sitting on the shelf in its original box unopened). And there is no guide included in the kit.

The guide I found online does not seem to show the kit I have, some of the pieces look different and some are not included in my kit. My extruder parts bag says its version R3

I assembled the MK3 when it arrived and was able to print many successful prints from it. 

 

I am now (again after a year or so from receiving the MMU2 upgrade attempting to install it. I have disassembled the extruder assembly but when I get to step #3 https://manual.prusa3d.com/Guide/3A.+MK3-MK2.5+-+extruder+upgrade/1069?lang=en#s18842 I noticed that my extruder body that came in my kit (Version R3) looks different from the one that is in the upgrade guide. I also do not have the "adapter-printer-mmu2s orange part shown in the guide. It is not included in the kit. 

Does anyone have a different guide? Am I missing something? 

 

Thank you

Jason

Hello Jason,

It sounds like this is the original MMU2 not the MMU2S that is on teh site now. I would contact Prusa support and see if they can get you the 2 to 2S upgrade.

RE: Help with MMU2 installation and finding correct manual.

I was in a similar situation - had the kits on the shelf for a long time (a carrot I was using to force myself to do other house improvement jobs first!). I did have the orange piece you mention though, which I think was in the MMU2->MMU2S upgrade bag that came with my kits - and I think I paid a little extra at the time to get the printed parts for the MMU2->MMU2S upgrade.

The original MMU2 manual is here which may help in your case, if what you have is indeed the MMU2 without the MMU2->MMU2S upgrade kit:
