Prusa launches the Prusa Mini, a $350 mini 3D printer for the masses

What you need to know

  • Prusa Research is one of the top names in 3D printing.
  • The Prusa Mini has a 7 x 7 x 7-inch build plate.
  • It comes with a lot of advanced features
  • It’s $349 plus shipping.

Today Prusa Research has announced its first new FDM form factor in a long time, called the Original Prusa Mini. The Mini is a smaller printer designed for beginners and schools, but with the same quality the Prusa brand is known for. With a build plate area of 180mm x 180mm x 180mm (7-inch x 7-inch x 7 inches), the Mini is significantly smaller than the Prusa Mk3s but is still a decent size compared to the Monoprice Mini Select. The Mini Select is a great small printer with only a five-inch cubed build area, so the Prusa mini is a great middle ground.

The Prusa Mini comes with a lot of advanced features too. Not only does it have auto bed leveling — a must in any printer, in my opinion — but it also has a removable powder coated PEI sheet. The sheets work amazingly well for holding the print firm and give you a great looking pattern on the bottom of the print.
