ORIGINAL PRUSA XL Assembled With 5 Tool Changers


Size comparison of prusa mini+, mk3s+ and Prusa XL

The Original Prusa XL runs on the latest embedded 32-bit platform with support for ultra-fast printing thanks to the native implementation of Input Shaper and Pressure Advance. Combined with the next-generation extruder, Nextruder, and its Loadcell sensor, the system can deliver an always-perfect first layer across the entire print surface - even in the five-head configuration! While the printer is compatible with our Prusa Connect network solution, it can be fully operated offline without any sacrifices in user comfort.

The toolchanger is what really sets the Original Prusa XL apart from other CoreXY 3D printers. The printer’s configuration allows for docking up to five toolheads and switching between them in a blink of an eye. You can preload up to five different filaments and truly take advantage of full multi-material printing. PLA combined with FLEX? PETG with PLA supports? The Original Prusa XL can deliver stunning results with ease - fast!

To further improve the quality and reliability of printing, the XL is equipped with a modular segmented heatbed driven by a separate electronic board. The heatbed consists of 16 individually controlled tiles designed to prevent heat deformation which is usually present in printers with a single large heatbed. You can always find the perfect print surface for your material with our proven double-sided print sheets with various types of surface textures.

With eight times larger print volume compared to the MINI+, no project is too big for the XL!



The Prusa XL Review - 3D Printing Nerd



Q: What is the difference between the Prusa XL and the X1E/X1C?

A: Both the Bambu Lab X1E and the Prusa XL are premium professional-grade printers. The Prusa XL features a larger build volume than the X1E at 360mm cube vs 256 mm cube. The X1E however does have a fully enclosed heated camber that has active heating controls allowing users to print high-performance engineering filaments. The Prusa XL has no enclosure which makes printing Nylon ABS and Polycarbonate nearly impossible. Both can print with multiple materials at once however the Prusa XL prints with separate nozzles for each part allowing the use of different temp materials in the same print. This also allows the XL to print soluble supports, and hybrid flexible parts with faster material changes than the X1E.

Q: What are the advantages of the Prusa Tool changer vs the Bambu AMS unit?

A: Reduced filament waste. Parts typically have less than 10% waste with multi-material prints compared to over 100% for many AMS multi-material prints.

Much faster print times with multiple materials as much as 4 to 6 times faster for prints with many material changes

Better performance with flexible materials with reduced travel distance for filament path and only one load/unload process

Q: Is the Prusa XL suitable for beginners?

A: The Prusa XL is primarily designed for professionals and advanced users as it allows for more complex multi-material parts. Its design, including enhanced connectivity options and advanced material handling capabilities, seems tailored toward users who have a good understanding of 3D printing technology. However, it doesn't mean a beginner couldn't learn to use it, especially with the right guidance and willingness to learn. 3D Printer Gear can also provide training for staff or any buyers who are not experienced with 3D printing.

Q: Can I print ultra-high-temperature materials on the Prusa XL?

A: Prusa XL, with a maximum hot-end temperature of 300°C, falls short of the required temperature range for printing ultra-high-temperature materials like PEKK (340°C to 360°C) and PEI (355°C to 390°C). Therefore, it is not suitable for printing these materials.

Q: Why is it cheaper on the Prusa website?

A: At 3D Printer Gear, we provide local support and assistance, including in-house warranty and repair services. This means that if you encounter any issues with your printer or require printing assistance or advice, we can provide immediate support via phone, email, or video chat or you are always welcome to bring your printer into our showroom. At 3D Printer Gear, we provide the added value of local support and assistance to ensure a hassle-free experience for our customers. You do not need to spend hours scouring the internet for help - we're here to provide you with design guidelines, help with slicing setup/optimisation, and offer general 3D printing advice for whatever your needs may be. We're not just a supplier, we're your partner in this 3D printing journey.
