This guide will take you through the replacement of the CoreXY Cover on the Original Prusa XL.
The following instructions are compatible with all Original Prusa XL.
Check out the images and descriptions to identify which version your printer has:
OLD XY Core cover: a full metal sheet with five holes on its bottom edge. If you have this version of the part, follow the instructions in the manual.
NEW XY Core cover: metal sheet with a perforated pattern of hexagonal holes. If your printer has this version, you already have the latest version and there is no need to continue with the guide.
All necessary parts are available in our eshop prusa3d.com.
Note that you have to be logged in to have access to the spare parts section.
Do not throw away any of the removed fasteners. You will need them again.
