Any progress here to report? A reprinted/redesigned part perhaps? I’ve already damaged one tube trying to get these in. Thank you
I unscrewed the two electronics board M3x18s and then tilted the electronics back. As a result I had better access and it got it done in just a few minutes. Might remind folks that the screws for the FTFE tube-holder are at a 30 degree angle or so in the directions.
Same problem as Joey and the rest. I was able to screw an M3x40 in and get that to grab and then switch back to the M3x25.
Great guide and the MK3 is so quiet! That in itself is worth the upgrade. The active community here is also tremendous so the guide is always improving. Thanks finally to the support team for quickly replacing the part I broke. The number one suggestion for a short-term improvement would be a better entry point for the extruder cable group into the Rambo cover.
It did work just fine for me as set forth in the manual. Wizard sailed right through.
+1. Yes, this helps. Still a little wander but less.
My second Prusa build, first MK3 and yet I still managed to strip my Y-belt-idler by being too aggressive in tightening down the nut. I already know better and these very instructions told me: “Be careful not to break the idler during tightening. “ Bummer. Of course, my Mk2S is in parts so I had to order a replacement. So my question is: I received a “we’re on back-order” update for the replacement. Any ideas as to how long? The new frame is way sturdier than the 2S. I’m pleased with you guys, displeased with myself! This is why we build though: to learn.
Good instructions. Expect around an hour to completely disassemble.
Easy problem to avoid: make sure the LCD cables are inserted with the red line at what will be the TOP of the printer. Printer won't run if reversed.
This all works out but a couple of extra pictures would probably help. Took a few tries. I thought I had screws that were too short but stick with it.
