    Nice quality prints,

    small print area (compared to filament)
    email ref
    Extremely accurate 3D prints: Featuring a high-resolution 5.5'' LCD display and silent trinamic drivers, SL1 is able to reach a minimum layer height of 0.01 mm. With the recommended layer height of 0.025-0.01 mm and print area size of 120 x 68 x 150 mm (or 4.7 2.6 5.9 in.), you can print more detailed objects than ever before.

    Been rumour on the Prusa facebook page that it was in the works. Was hoping would be a little cheaper. (US dollar and freight is a killer)


    ** something that might be good for us all **
    Also posted in an updated email they are making their own filament (with tighter tolerances) and will (also) sell it on amazon (world wide).

    LAUNCHING PRUSAMENT

    THE BEST FILAMENT THAT YOU CAN INSPECT YOURSELF

    When we manufacture our printers at Prusa Research, we have everything under our control, except for one thing – and that’s the filament. We haven't been satisfied with the quality standards of the current filament production. To make a long story short, since last year we’ve been building a filament factory and perfecting our own in-house filament: Prusament! So let’s dive into some details on how we do things differently.

    Manufactured in-house: Whenever you heard about the “Prusa filament”, it always referred to a product made for us by an external company (it is a common practice for all printer manufacturers). However, the new Prusament is manufactured in the very same building as our Original Prusa i3 3D printers. Five filament production lines now take up one whole floor of our factory!
    Premium-grade materials and thorough testing: It’s difficult to produce a single high-quality spool, but it’s much more difficult to retain a consistent quality in mass production. The whole process is closely monitored and everything is properly tested – string diameter, color consistency, and mechanical properties – to make sure that every spool that leaves our factory is perfect. And you should see our filament winding!
    0.02 mm manufacturing precision: Most filament manufacturers use a 0.05 mm diameter tolerance when producing 1.75mm filaments. It looks like a tiny number, but we must not forget that this kind of deviation can in its extreme values increase or decrease the expected flow rate by 11.4 %. We decided to set our own manufacturing precision standards, so all our filaments spools are manufactured with 0.02 mm precision!
    Quality you can check yourself: We offer you the option to inspect the properties of every manufactured spool. Just take your cell phone and take a picture of the QR code on the box, or enter the spool ID on Prusament.com website. We will show you the maximum deviation of your filament, its standard deviation value and ovality. Plus, you can check the diameter data visualized using a graph. Take a look at sample spool!
    Oh, and one more thing – Prusament will be also available on Amazons around the world within a month because we know that shipping from Prague to the rest of the world can be a bit expensive

    Hopefully amazon au has that filament and it's not stupidly expensive.

    Yeah,
    Shipping kills buying from Prusa and usd and the current filament on Amazon is over priced(IMO).

    Interesting that the variation can make so much difference. around 11% according to Prusa.
    (might be the cause of one of my last prints differences in wall thicknesses)
