Product description: 3D Printer - Original Prusa MINI+ - DIY kit
3D printermanufactured byPrusa. It usesa 32 bit motherboardwith silent Trinamic 2209 stepper motor drivers and an Ethernet communication connector. The working area of the Prusa MINI+ is180 x 180 x 180 mm. The heating table of the presented version features a magnetic spring steel plate. Thanks to the small construction dimensions: 380 x 380 x 330 mm, the MINI+ can be used to create so-called printer farms. The product is sold as a set for completely self-assembly (DIY). The producer providesassembly instructionsonly in electronic form.
We also offer Prusa MINI+ in aversion for simplified installation.
Prusa MINI+ presentation.
The Prusa MINI+ incorporates many innovations. These include the design of the extruder. The extruder motor has been placed on the Z-axis column, which reduces the dead weight of the extruder.Bowdendrivewith a 3:1 ratioensures precise and efficient movement of the filament with a diameter of 1.75 mm through the PTFE tube to the hotend and then to the printer nozzle.
Prusa MINI+ workspace
Despite its compact design, the Prusa MINI+ offers convenient working area of180 x 180 x 180 mm. The optimal design of the device allows for the creation of medium-sized models while maintaining the compact nature of the printer. This model of Prusa can be successfully used to create 3D printer farms. In MINI+ limit switches have been eliminated. The work tableis leveled automaticallyusing grid lines.
Simple removal of printouts
The work surface of the Prusa MINI+ is equipped with a removablespring-steeloverlay. This makes it easy and safe to remove finished models. The magnetic plate adheres almost perfectly to the heating platform during moulding. When printing is complete, the magnetic plate can be removed and the formed model removed without fear of damage.
Easy printer control
The original Prusa MINI+ is controlled by a280 x 320 pixel 2.8''screen panel. The menu is clear and easy to navigate. It allows you to access all printer functions in a simple way and start printing your project with just one click. After installing a USB drive with a ready model, its preview is displayed on the screen. All you have to do is accept the job and get started.
Buddy STM32 32-bit motherboard
In Prusa MINI+, the manufacturer used a modern motherboard, labeled as "Buddy" model. Specially designed for this model, the unit is based on32 bit architecture. Quiet Trinamic 2209 stepper motor drivers ensure quiet operation while maintaining high performance.
Security features in Prusa MINI+
The original Prusa MINI+ is equipped with a number of security features that protect the user against unpleasant surprises in the form of loss of previous work progress. The printer has implemented thePower Panicfunction, whose main task is to restore normal operation of the device after a loss of power. Stable work of the device is ensured by ahigh-class power supplyand three thermistors.
SuperPINDA sensor, improved Y axis and modified firmware
The SuperPinda sensoris responsible for leveling the table. It is temperature resistant, so changes in temperature do not affect the sensor. This property is especially important when printing the first print layer. In the Prusa MINI+ modelmetal bearing housingsof the Y axis were used. This solution is easier to install and provides better support of the structure. The printer's firmware, version 4.0.5, has been enhanced withPrusa Connect Local.
Dedicated PrusaSlicer 2.0 software
For print preparation, the manufacturer provides its own software,PrusaSlicer, in the latest version 2.0, which offers numerous advanced functions and is easy to use at the same time.

Powerful printer in a mini+ version
The Prusa brand does not need to be presented to any 3D printing enthusiast. The Prusa MINI+ model with the dimensions of only 380 x 380 x 330 mm is an offer from the Czech manufacturer for those who have a small workshop space at their disposal. Despite the small external dimensions, the working area is quite large at 180 x 180 x 180 mm.
The Prusa MINI+ 3D printer is built on a 32-bit motherboard with Trinamic 2209 drivers, ensuring efficient operation of the device and low noise emissions. Another innovation is the mounting of the extruder on the Z axis column, reducing the weight of the entire construction.
Easy printing and easy model removal
Original Prusa MINI+ 3D printer - kit for self-assembly will be suitable even for beginners in incremental printing. The intuitive, dedicated PrusaSlicer 2.0 environment and the large, full-color graphical display make preparing and creating models easy.
Removing finished models from the workbench is safer and faster thanks to spring-loaded steel caps. And the Power Panic function allows you to restart 3D printing after a sudden power interruption without damaging the printed form.
