Prusa i3 Mk2.5S

Prusa i3 Mk2.5S

The Prusa i3 MK2.5S is one of the main workhorse printers at Fox.Build. It has a removable build plate with a smooth surface on one side and texture on the other. It is used primarily to print PLA and PETG. This printer used to have the Multi-Material-Unit (MMU), but we removed that because it was very unreliable.
