Poland’s Jelwek Makes Changes to Prusa i3 & i3 Prusa Jelwek XL, Unveils MARK 23 3D Printer

Share this Article

Jelwek-logoPoland-based Jelwek, on inception, was based around making 3D printers for independent and creative makers and designers so that they could not only be inspired and come forth with a variety of concepts, but also bring them to fruition with quality and affordability. Often, though, offering these capabilities to users means refining equipment and redesigning different packages and lineups from time to time.

In a recent announcement, Jelwek stated that they would be making “significant changes” to their lineup of affordable 3D printers that arrive to their new owners ready for assembly.

With changes to the Prusa i3, as well as to the i3 Prusa Jelwek XL, Jelwek is working not only to refine those two extremely popular 3D printing machines, but also to pave a grand new road for the MARK 23.

MARK34-1

The MARK 34 was the first 3D printer made by Jelwek, now being discontinued to make way for the MARK 23.

The MARK 23 was just presented at what is known as the largest 3D printing event in Eastern Europe–the Kielce 3D printing event. Also known as ‘3D Printing Days,’ the event is coordinated by Tytan 3D, where several times a year they meet with East European 3D printing industry leaders. The event has been held several times already—and this time Jelwek was showing off the MARK 23 as they get ready to retire the company’s first product, the MARK 34, an inexpensive, compact 3D printer which is no longer being sold.

With all sorts of positive changes on the horizon, Jelwek is letting their dedicated following of 3D printing users know that they not only heard them when it came to feedback, but used their invaluable suggestions in making changes to both the Prusa i3 and the i3 Prusa Jelwek XL. They’ve made changes to both flagship products by way of:

  • Adding a reinforced 3D printer frame–meant to improve 3D print quality, even at increased speeds.
  • Integrated power supply–allowing these devices to become more compact.
  • Revised installation manual–better explaining ‘assembly nuances.’
  • Electronics–‘Rumba’ electronics system allows use of as many as three extruders.

oneThe Prusa i3 has an aluminum frame with threaded rods and a build area of 200 x 200 x 200 mm.  Users can 3D print using:

  • PLA
  • PVA
  • Nylon
  • ABS
  • Laywood

The i3 Prusa Jelwek XL is an extended version of the Prusa i3 which allows a build area of 200 x 300 x 200 mm, with 3D printing in all the same materials, with the addition of Woodfill, Laybrick, and T-Glase.

Founded in 2013, Jelwek has been responsible for bringing compact, less expensive 3D printers to the market. The Polish company, headquartered in Zakrzówek, was founded by two students dedicated to innovation and to the manufacturing of 3D printers that produce high quality for the design community they cater to.

Do you own or have you 3D printed with either the Prusa i3 or the i3 Prusa Jelwek XL? Do you foresee the changes Jelwek has made as offering improvements that will really impact the users? Tell us your thoughts in the Prusa i3 & i3 Prusa Jelwek XL 3D Printer Changes forum thread over at 3DPB.com.
