Currently, we are using PETG both for black and orange parts. ABS is also fine, yet PETG is easier to print from.

Our colours might slightly differ, but you can use the following:

Recently I have ordered two spools of Orange PETG using the link that @jakoob has posted here. I have received two different colors: Prusa Orange and Orange. I don't understand why... :S I made the order expecting receive 2 spools of Pura Orange.

in case you received two different colours, please contact our support. The orange color we are using to print parts is developing in time, therefore links mentioned above aren't valid forever.

What settings are recommended for printing spare parts? Had a major crack in one part and a minor in another, will try to print spares before anything bad happens...

Infill setting?

Will the included PLA filament work for spare parts in low temperature areas?

Hi Hans,

all the parts and recommended setting can be found here:

https://www.prusa3d.com/prusa-i3-printab...

(0.2 mm layer height, infill 20% GRID)

I suggest using PETG everywhere because PLA isn't exactly prone to repetitive loading.
