Last week (2021-Nov-04) I ordered me a Prusa mini clone from Aliexpress.
I already have an original Prusa Mini from the moment it was offered by Prusa. I waited for over 1/2 a year to get it delivered as I was one of the (almost) first to order it. And- I value the machine very positive.
I use it for professional prints, mostly with white, orange and black PETG.
I hope that my additional Prusa Mini will be just as perfect as my original one.
On Ali, everything was offered except the printed parts. It includes a buddyboard 32 bits with 2209 drivers, LCD 2.6 inch, 3 motors, nuts and bolts, cables, hoses, bearings, clamps, hotbed, pei sheet, rods, extruder, fans, extrusion, you name it, really everything is included for 105 Euro’s . But- you guessed it- I never got anything delivered. I have a dispute running now, hopefully I wiull get the money back. And- I ordered a new one, now the costs are more than double, as is to be expected.
As add-on I ordered 2 renewed Z-sensors (including temp sensor) from Prusa for Eur 50 incl. Tax and shipment. With this, both mini’s can be upgraded to Mini+ 3d printers. Except the longer bed of course. Also, both the buddyboards will get the Mini+ firmware.
Since I also own an original Prusa mini, printing the parts was easy, as you can see in the attached pictures.:
Still, also a Prusa mini can have stringing wth PetG. OR, i think this was caused because I purposely set the temp very high to get extremely solid prints. Whatever, I cleaned the printed parts afterwards with a knife and that turned out to be easy enough.
The black PETG parts got printed on my Ender 3 pro+.
Built after receival of the non-printed parts on 2021-12-22 JMWG.NL
I upgraded the Buddyboard V1.0.0 straight away to the latest Prusa Mini firmware and compared the prints against my Original Prusa Mini.
I honestly could not see any difference between the two of them.
