PS1’s three Prusa MK2S printers are in bad shape and this proposal aims to provide PS1 with three new MK3S printers to replace them. Printer 1 has a failed bed and motherboard, an attempt was made to upgrade it with a Chinese kit and was sent back for a refund after arriving non-functional. Printer 2 has a bad motherboard and would no longer work with the PINDA probe. The third MK2S is still working and will be kept as a backup printer, although it has 490 days of print time on it.

The total cost to purchase from Prusa will be roughly $2,500. An extra $250 has been added for import fees and accessories.
