Original Prusa i3 mk3 3D Printer – Unboxing / 3D Printing / First Impressions

Josef Prusa and Prusa Research sent over a fully assembled Prusa i3 mk3 3d printer for me to test out and show off on the channel. In the video, I get it out of the box, set up, and we print with it. PLUS, we test out the cool new features! POWER PANIC, FILAMENT DETECTION, CRASH DETECTION.

That wissel looked just like a whistle.

Fortnite Gamer says:

Dam it I just bought a Prusa i3 mk2 about 2 months ago and now I have to drop another grand on the mk3!

Dick Tsui says:

what if the power suddenly runs out and you bumped on it, i don’t think you have a way to recover it

Ben Tebrunsvelt says:

More prusa printer please

Monique DeSalvo says:

I got the mk2s a week before Prusa announced the mk3. I recently got the mk2.5 upgrade kit but haven’t assembled it yet. I’m curious if you’re going to upgrade a mk2/s to mk2.5 or if it’s not worth it to you b/c you already have the mk3. 🙂 I’d like to see more people doing the upgrade before I attempt it!

Dalknar Props says:

I have a cr-10, I’m looking to get another one, do you recommend the prusa?

antrostar says:

Because of all the features, do you think that this would this be a very good, or very bad printer for beginners?

Ryan Detzel says:

I can’t tell you how you how much I love your short intro. Please don’t ever change this, after binging on videos it’s so refreshing to not have to sit through 10-20 second intros for every video.

smlifyrasor says:

Oh god… The way it unspools some of the filament when it raises up, what a nightmare that could cause!

Sebastian V says:

Thank You Joel for the awesome vid!! You’re making me want one!

JenkkiTomppa says:

stop talking!!!. I didn’t tune in for a reality show, I want to see the machine in action. Uhg, I give up.

Anuj Gupta says:

Nice nose

GD Spaceman says:

What are the drawbacks (if there are any) to buying the kit version of the MK3? I’m getting into the realm of 3D printing, but I really enjoy building kits of things and such. It would be my first 3D printer and cost is kind a large part of me choosing a printer (the kit is about $200 cheaper than the prebuilt one)

Dart Watts says:

this is a piece of shit , sure if you get on that works , i have had this piece of junk for a year , no warrenty nothing , so roll the dice , you get a good one great , you get a piece of junk , your screwed

Mike Dobek says:

what is a excellent 3d printer for beginners a delta printer or a cartesian printer?

Arto Haverinen says:

How about these printing. Please comment and what is wrong about these prints

ugetridofit says:

Makes me wonder why manuf even bother printing manual, when no one reads them. Clearly, this guy didn’t.

Allan Arthur says:

print the bust of Nefertiti in time warp lol on the kit you have .

Dwain Morris says:

Hi I am thinking about buying a Prebuilt Prusa i3 MK3 with a multiple filament printing upgrade . So can you do a video on that machine and make prints showing how all those colors print together

Matthew Barlow says:

I ordered mine 2 weeks ago and was told to expect it by March. Anticipating is killing me.
I also wonder why they kept the i3 part of the name. I think the whole “i…” is like the “Got Milk” it’s been used so much it’s lost all originality and value, in my mind.

pepa hanak says:

i am from czech republic and i can say you why is there this black plastic foil on the box… it is because czech post is totaly not gentle to boxes and every 5th box which they had in hands is damaged

MrAbletospeak says:


Allan Arthur says:

got my PRUSA I3 MK3 kit finally took 16 hours total for me to build and print first print right. z
adjust was hardest for me lol.

Anthony Carson says:

My extruder servo stepper motor thingy got weak after about 10 prints.. I’m having to upgrade it to a more beefier one. (Sorry about using so much engineering lingo.)

Kevin Johnson says:

hey Joel, I have been watching your videos and decided to jump into 3d printing! I even ordered the Mk3 sat night. However monday morning i remembered that you have an affiliate link! so i canceled my order and am reordering through the link! a bit of a hassle but i wanted to make sure you got credit as a thank you for all the videos you make for us.

Caleb Powell says:

When is Prusa going to come out with a larger build volume? I’d love a 400mm^3 or larger volume 😀

Allan Arthur says:

6 days to shipment of my Prusa I3 MK3 kit. Joel think you would have time to come help me put together, Topeka Kansas lol.

Chris Van der poel says:

Hi everyone i am looking to buy my first 3d printer and I need you opinion about which one I should get I’m am doubting between the anet a6 and the tevo tarantula I would really love you opinion. Thx

Xerb says:

Everythng is rapped in Black plastic cuz the post service is So bad(my experience)

Andres Borges says:

So much for an unbiased review….

chip2567 says:

I want one but there are not in price range. i do not want a cheap one because I do not read well. i like the thought of plug-and-play and big easy to read manuals. for some one that dos not read well i need it to just work i can not go to the forms for help. my fast pc that i made i throw the book in the corner looked that the parts and went to work. i have made 8′ by 12′ cnc.

Matthew Stile says:

Just curious if u could recommend which printer I’m torn between this because of price but have also been looking at an Ultimaker 3 and raise3d n2 plus. This will be my first one. I’m willing to invest the money if it’s that much bette.
