When upgrading your Prusa i3 MK3S with a Bondtech extruder package, replacement of the X-carriage is required. This kit is a professionally SLS printed package which also includes all the required hardware for installation. If you would prefer to print your own version, there are also STL files available.
The Prusa i3 MK2.5S or MK3S are great 3D printers out of the box, but as with any other 3D printer, the addition of a Bondtech extruder package is a preferred investment. The direct-drive architecture of the i3 means that this upgrade kit replaces most of the X-carriage, and for the MK2.5S or MK3S machines a new mounting plate is required. To support this need, Bondtech produces professional SLS 3D printed parts to not only upgrade the printer but make it high-temperature ready in enclosures up to 100°C. These nylon components also include all of the needed installation hardware.
