Recommendations

Instructions:

Please keep those instructions close by while assembling your printer-box: you may need to click on some of the pictures or watch our video tutorials.

Handling the printer: 

Do not risk getting burned: wait until the printer has cooled down before handling it.
Always handle your 3D printer with care: the tray moves easily.

People required for assembly:

You can do this on your own.

Work area:

Set up on a stable table or work surface that can ideally be walked around.
If you can’t navigate around your table, that’s okay, you may have to orientate your printer-box differently but you won’t break your back.

Non supplied material:

To mount the printerbox, you can use the tools supplied with the Prusa printer:

  • 1 2mm hex key
  • 1 2.5mm hex key
  • 1 clamp 

For the air vent module, you can either use:

  • 1 Swiffer wipe 
  • 1 surgical mask
