Prusa Research Original Prusa MINI review

The Prusa Research Original Prusa MINI is an affordable and compact 3D printer for both hobbyists and professionals. It is made by Prusa Research, an award-winning 3D printer manufacturer based in the Czech Republic.

This desktop 3D printer is a simpler, more compact version of the Original Prusa i3 MK3S. It comes as an easy three-piece kit to be assembled by the user. Original Prusa printers are all open-source and easy to upgrade.

The MINI can be an affordable 3D printer for beginners as much as it can be part of a Prusa MINI printer farm for small production series.

Original Prusa i3 MK3S vs Prusa MINI

Aside from offering a smaller build volume, the Original Prusa MINI differs from the MK3S a few other aspects. These include:

  • Prusa Research now uses their own, proprietary 32-bit mainboard dubbed Buddy
  • It has a Bowden-style extruder (vs direct extruder on the MK3S)
  • The extruder can heat up to 280°C whereas the MK3S’ extruder heats up to 300°C

It’s also significantly more affordable, costing over two times less than the Prusa i3 MK3S.

Original Prusa MINI main features

  • Color LCD screen
  • Power panic (continues the print where it left off in case of power failure)
  • Magnetic print bed and removable steel sheets
  • One-click printing with automatic bed leveling and calibration

An optional Wi-Fi module and optional filament sensor are available separately.
