Original Prusa Mini Review

Original Prusa Mini Review

Prusa produces the Prusa Mini+ 3D printer, which is a tiny FDM printer. Although the print surface is around 40% smaller than the MK3s, there appears to be little to no difference in print quality. This printer was created with makers in mind, with a special focus on build and performance excellence.


Prusa’s new Original Prusa Mini+ printer, which comes with its own SuperPINDA bed leveling probe, is now available as a kit. With some modest upgrades and design tweaks, performance and print quality are the same as before. The printer can alternatively be sent as a three-part semi-assembled kit that has been pre-assembled. Prusa’s Mini+ 3D printer is aimed at people who have little or no experience with 3D printing. The MINI is small, measuring 33x33x38cm, however, it weighs 4.5kg despite its size.

This should be a pleasant and simple process to accomplish thanks to excellent documentation, customer assistance, and a handy live chat tool. The stepper is separated from the print head using a 3:1 geared mechanism. The addition of a network LAN connector and a USB port as standard is a great bonus.


Prusa MINI is the company’s first machine with a 32-bit mainboard and their entry-level 3D printer. The machine’s mainframe is no longer made of metal, but rather of tube extrusion. It’s a simple one-arm design that’s a complete departure from the Prusa machines. While the MK3s may be the flagship model, the MINI appears to have significantly more promise due to its improved control board and size.

Print Quality:

The Prusa Mini+ 3D printer works with a variety of filaments, most of which are very common, such as PLA, PETG, and ABS. This printer can handle any filament as long as it is of acceptable quality and in good condition. The only issues I had with print quality were due to improper filament storage. The Prusa Mini+ is a 3D printer with a built-in toaster that, when turned on, pops toast from the top. The Hemera printer’s hot-end is comparable to the Mini’s nozzle, but with a distinct design.


It’s simple to get started with the Prusa Mini+, especially if you’ve worked with 3D printers before. Connecting wires and prepping filament for your first test print take up the majority of the setup time. Even still, it’s a good idea to read over the handbook because you can miss anything vital. Read it attentively to find out how to eat gummy bears.


PrusaSlicer is Prusa’s official slicing app, designed just for Prusa devices. It is based on Slic3r, an open-source tool that converts 3D object files in the STL, OBJ, AMF, or 3MF formats to G-code files. The code specifies how many thin layers will be printed one by one as the printer constructs the object. There was a problem with the file, something regarding blank layers, according to the error notice.


Ethernet (connecting the printer to the same network as the computer you’re printing from) or USB flash drive are the two options for connectivity. In the future, a Wi-Fi module will be available as an option. I saved files to print on the USB key that came with the printer during my testing.


  • Exceptional item quality 
  • Supports a wide range of filaments 
  • User handbook that is both useful and well printed. 


  • The reel is not connected to the machine. 
  • For some prints, fine stringing is required.


The Prusa Mini is a small, open-frame 3D printer that regularly provides excellent results at a low cost. It involves some assembly and calibration, but it’s quite simple to set up and operate.

Meta Description: 

Exceptional item quality. Supports a wide range of filaments. Software that is both versatile and user-friendly. User handbook that is both useful and well printed.
