We are aware of that the full upgrade from Original Prusa i3 M2/S to MK3 is a little bit pricey, so so we came up with the second best option - the MK2.5 upgrade. It gives you the best features of magnetic bed with spring steel sheet, whole new extruder head with Bondtech and Noctua fans goodness and also the P.I.N.D.A. 2 bed leveling sensor and filament sensor.
But if you want the full MK3 upgrade anyway, no problem! You can find it here.
The retail MK2 to MK2.5 upgrade price is $199. If MK2S was bought during the last 30 days before MK3 release (September 23, 2017), it is just $99 (or a different amount based on the respective MK2S price drop in other currencies, for example 60 GBP discount for purchases made in GBP) (vouchers were sent on October 18, 2017, please check your spam folder before contacting our support). If you bought MK2/S before, ever, it will be $149 for you (Again, the amount may differ for other currencies. You have to be logged in with the account used to buy your MK2 to automatically get this discount). We know it’s a really great deal but the magnetic heatbed and the extruder improvements are extremely useful and we want to spread them rapidly :).
Upgrade kit contains:
- Magnetic MK52 Heatbed with powder coated PEI spring steel print sheet 12v
- Bondtech extruder gears
- Filament Sensor
- P.I.N.D.A 2 with thermistor
- Noctua fan 5v
- 200g EasyABS filament
if you're upgrading from MK2, you will NOT get MK2S parts like u-bolts and new rods/bearings, you have to get them separately.
G-code files to print on your MK2/S will be available prior to the release in Prusa i3 printable parts
