Prusa i3 MK3s+

The Prusa i3 MK3s+ is a successor to Original Prusa i3 MK3 with hardware and software upgrades which lead to improved reliability and ease of use and assembly.

The Edge purchased 5 Prusa i3s printers to replace the ageing Up mini 2s.


  • Build volume – (250(W) x 210(D) x 210(H) mm (11,025 cm3)
  • 0.4mm nozzle
  • PEI print surface


In theory, the Prusa i3 Mk3s+ can be set up to print using a range of filaments including:

PLA Polylactic acid (Starch based)
ABS Acrylonitrile butadiene styrene
PETG Polyethylene terephthalate (Glycol modified)
Nylon Polyamide
Composite Materials Often PLA with carbon fiber, metal or wood fill
HIPS High-impact polystyrene
PVA Polyvinyl acetate (Water-soluble Print support)
PP Polypropylene

In practice, we control the types of filaments permitted for printing, due to the emissions they produce when melted. For the full range, see: Supported Filaments
