***TURN YOUR MK3 OFF AND UNPLUG THE PRINTER TO ENSURE YOU DO NOT CAUSE DAMAGE TO THE ELECTRONICS***

We’ve included 2 extension cords to allow you to mount the LCD screen of the PRUSA MK3/MK3S externally. Begin by removing the LCD by removing these 4 bolts.

Next, unplug the 2 cords from these outlets. The LCD screen should now be free from the printer. You can also test the extension wires at this point if you’d like.

Print the files in the LCD ADAPTER folder. We’ve provided 2 separate versions. LCD ADAPTER REMOVABLE is designed to mount the LCD screen without the need for permanent fixation by using a mount that anchors beneath the weight of the enclosure. Additionally, the edge of your enclosure MUST be flush with the edge of your table as this mount must overhang to function properly.

Another option is the LCD ADAPTER FIXED version which is designed to screw directly into the Lack table with the included screws (or any other table that you don’t mind drilling a hole into).

LCD ADAPTER REMOVABLE INSTRUCTIONS

Add the LCD screen to the two plates using the 4 bolts removed from the printer previously as shown below. Make sure the square nuts didn’t fall out when removing the LCD from the Prusa.

Position your Prusa inside the enclosure if you haven’t done so. Pull the enclosure slightly off the edge of the table in front of you and run the cords BENEATH the plexiglass (there should be about a 2mm gap at the bottom of the enclosure due to the rubber pads installed during the build. Then, slide your LCD into place and reposition your enclosure at the edge of your table. Details are shown below.

LCD ADAPTER FIXED INSTRUCTIONS

These instructions are similar to those above. Begin by using the same 4 bolts to secure the LCD to the mounting plate.

Add the mounting plate to the Lack or other table using the included screws (you may need to drill start holes with an electric drill). You may consider putting a hole in the bottom of the Lack to run the cords under the bottom of the enclosure instead of under the front door frame if you would like a “cleaner” look with this setup.

What's with the arch?

The reason that we designed the arch into the Sumo Enclosure is because, with the CoreXY design, the Prusa XL spends the beginning of the print with the print bed all the way at the top of the printer. Without the arch, the view of the beginning layers, which are the most important, would be obstructed. By adding the arch, the visibility of the initial layers is improved, and the arch also fits the design of the Prusa XL as well.

  • Free extra magnets and fasters for added customization options
