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.
Adding a note to folks following along to take your time here. I too missed that second nut marked in red, had to backtrack, then didn't set it in deeply enough. Of all the steps, it's the simple ones that get you.
In the newest releases these are now beautifully tapped.
