Prusa Announces Next-Gen, MK4 3D Printer

Posted on

Prusa Research today announced the long awaited release of the Prusa MK4 3D printer, and on paper it looks like you get a lot of printer for your money, perhaps enough to make it on to our list of best 3D printers. The $1,099 MK4 is described by Josef Průša “as an open-source 3D printing workhorse with long-term support.” and the team have been running hundreds of units for more than a year.

The MK4 is built around a 32-bit STM32-powered mainboard, “xBuddy board” which also provides Ethernet access and more importantly new features such as Input Shaper (fine speed control of the motion system) and Pressure Advance (increasing the filament as the nozzle accelerates, retracting as it slows).
