“There’s always better, even for the best. Take your printing to the next level with the best Prusa i3 MK3S and MK3S+ upgrades.”
The Prusa i3 MK3S and MK3S+ are incredible printers, claiming the title of “Best Printer” in our buyer’s guides for 2020 and 2021, respectively. Makers from all over the world have used these printers to produce wonderful prints: They offer a well-balanced set of features, delivering top-notch results, even considering the high (but worth it) price tag. However, there’s nothing that can’t be improved. Case in point, Prusa Research and members of the 3D printing community have rolled out several upgrades for the MK3S and MK3S+. Some improve the machines themselves, while others add extra functionality. While there are many generic 3D printer upgrades out there, this list will focus on those that target the MK3S and MK3S+ or are from the Prusa community. So, without further ado, let’s dive into the best upgrades for Prusa i3 MK3S and MK3S+.
The official Prusa Multi-Material Upgrade 2S (MMU2S) is a bold step forward for anyone looking to up their 3D printing game. This upgrade kit comes with everything you need to transform the Prusa i3 MK3S into a five-material beast. That means that you can print with different colors, materials, or both at the same time!
The 2S version of the upgrade comes with new features designed for greater reliability, which some users had reported issues with in earlier generations. These features include a new filament sensor for more accurate detection and a filament buffer for smoother, tangle-free reloading. Prusa Research has also been working on improving its firmware for a simpler and more reliable user experience. Some assembly is required, and multi-material printing is definitely not for the faint of heart. But if you’re up to it, the Prusa MMU2S upgrade will take your printer to a whole new level.
