Original Prusa MK4S Product Summary
The latest addition to the renowned Prusa line of 3D printers, now available in Australia. With a cutting-edge design, the MK4S offers high-speed printing, exceptional reliability, and unmatched ease-of-use, building upon the best features of the MK3 and taking them to the next level.
One of the standout features of the MK4S is its Loadcell sensor, which ensures flawless, smooth first layers without the need for manual adjustments. This innovative technology makes printing faster and more efficient, while also reducing the risk of print failure.
The MK4S also features the next-generation Nextruder and a 32-bit connected platform, which offers a range of quality-of-life enhancements for users. With remote 3D printing capabilities, swift nozzle swapping, and a fully customizable user interface featuring one-click printing, the MK4S is a true game-changer in the world of 3D printing.
In addition, the Original Prusa MK4S offers advanced safety features and effortless maintenance, making it an ideal choice for both beginners and advanced users alike. And as with all Prusa 3D printers, the MK4S is an open-source, user-friendly workhorse that offers exceptional value for money.
If you're looking for a cutting-edge 3D printer that offers unbeatable quality, reliability, and ease-of-use, look no further than the Original Prusa MK4S. Order yours today and experience the future of 3D printing!
Original Prusa MK4S Product Details
The Original Prusa MK4 is built around our new 32-bit connected architecture and the next-generation extruder (Nextruder). It lays down a perfect first layer every time without Live Adjust Z and it has support for high-speed printing with Input Shaper and Pressure Advance. We also improved the safety features even further. Plus, there are a ton of useful things, such as quick-swap nozzles, built-in support for remote printing and webcams, and many more. And it’s still beautifully quiet.

- Effortlessly fast and silent 3D printing
- Fully automatic first layer calibration thanks to the Load Cell sensor
- Print right out of the box - no print sheets profiles, no tinkering, no Live Adjust Z!

High-speed printing with ease
Thanks to our own implementation of Input Shaper and Pressure Advance technologies in the MK4’s firmware, the printer can eliminate resonance in prints and predict the flow of the filament. The result is a decrease in print time by up to 70% compared to MK3. What's more, the printer is very quiet even at these speeds - check out the sub-20-minute Benchy video. Support for high-speed printing will be added later via a firmware update.
Perfect First Layer Out of the Box
Thanks to the precise Loadcell sensor, MK4 can lay down a perfectly smooth and consistent first layer automatically without any user input. At the beginning of a print, the printer taps the sheet with the nozzle in a grid-like pattern to measure the distance and then calculates the correct offsets. The result is a perfect first layer on every surface, without manual adjustments.
The Nextruder with Breakout Board
Extruder is the heart of every 3D printer. And this is a special one. On most 3D printers today, replacing extruder components is a rather complicated process. With the new connector break-out board inside the Nextruder, all of the parts, such as fans, heaters, thermistors, etc., are connected directly there. If you need to swap anything, it takes just a minute.
32-bit xBuddy Mainboard
Our new xBuddy board is a 32-bit STM32-powered mainboard with many great features. It has several unique hardware-based safety protection systems, communicates with four thermistors, has all important ports (Ethernet, Wi-Fi, works with USB-A flash drives) and more. The entire board was designed, manufactured, and tested in-house.
Exceptional Print Quality
The MK4 comes with redesigned, more robust plastic parts and new precise 0.9° stepper motors (0.9° / step; low inductance) on the X and Y axes that help eliminate Vertical Fine Artifacts on prints. Plus, there are thicker 10mm rods on the Z-axis. The result is, that prints look better than ever and even printing with “problematic” filaments like Flex is a breeze.
Colour LCD screen and simple UI
MK4’s display supports G-code thumbnails, QR codes and other elements that make using the printer so much easier. We also redesigned many of the existing menus and added a customizable footer panel. Directly under the LCD, there is an RGB status bar to signalize the current status of the printer. Next to the LCD, there’s a USB-A port for standard USB flash drives.
Thanks to two quick-release thumbscrews on the side of the body of Nextruder, which holds the nozzle in place, you can swap nozzles easier than ever. The MK4 is using special nozzles with an all-metal filament guide (no PTFE tubes anywhere), which improves the overall reliability of the printer. The simple Nextruder-to-V6 adapter is available.
Slice with PrusaSlicer
Our internally developed multiplatform slicer comes with in-house-made and fully tested profiles for all of our 3D printers and a wide range of filaments. With built-in tools, such as organic supports, cutting, automated object distribution, ironing and many others, you will turn your 3D models into print files in no time!
Support for a wide range of Materials
The MK4 is fully compatible with a wide range of various types of materials. No matter whether you want to print something for fun from PLA and flexible materials, or you need to produce durable prototypes from PETG, ASA, Polycarbonate and Polypropylene - the MK4 can handle them without any problem.
MK4 is, along our other 3D printers, fully supported by Prusa Connect, which allows you to control the printer via internet. You can drag-and-drop G-Codes into the browser window to upload print files first into the cloud (each user gets 2 GB for free) and then transfer it into the printer’s USB storage and start the print remotely. All communication is encrypted.

Prusa MK4, best thing I've bought in ages!By: William Taylor on 2 June 2023Certainly some would say diving in at the deep end with a printer, but it's been fantastic, and definitely worth every cent I paid for it. Still experimenting with different filament meterials, but haven't reached the limits with imagining what to make! Also, the mk4 is extra good for accessibillity, as most prints can be started with inserting a usb drive and just pressing the knob. The calibration is automatic, so if you can't read a display easily, this is the one to considder. also the slicer can be command line driven, and so can openscad if you go that way.
