MK3 shipping information

Updated 1 day ago ​by Jakub Stranel

The dates are only an estimation and rely on the actual production, delays caused by quality control during the manufacturing process on any of the components can occur unexpectedly, we update the shipping table immediately as such delays happen, to only bring you printers we are fully satisfied with. We're doing our best but please be aware that it can shift up to one extra week for the lead time. Or we can positively surprise you and ship it a bit sooner :).

Please note we're currently shipping all orders with smooth PEI "sticker" spring steel sheet (the same excellent surface as MK2 is using, just double-sided and on removable magnetic bed), we don’t want to promise any dates again, as we got burned two times already, but it will be at least another month until the textured powder-coated version. More in the article. If you want to receive your printer with textured powder-coated spring steel sheet, please contact us and we'll hold your order until they are ready. Sheets will be available to order separately for $24.99 (glossy and textured powder coated) or $29.99 (smooth PEI "sticker") during late Spring 2018 (estimated) and you will get $10 discount for textured powder coated steel sheet to everyone who receives the printer with smooth PEI “sticker” spring steel sheet before and FREE shipping with it. More information on the sheets in the article.

Current shipping table for MK3 orders

Updated: March 21st 2018

We apologize for the current production delays with MK3 kits and want to share the reasons here also. Unfortunately the flu season hit us in the production team (around 15% people down in the last month). Our partners have problems delivering the estimated heatbed capacities and there are also capacity problems with engraving the plates at the same time. We produced around 1/3 less than we planned.

MK3 ordered together with MK2.5 or MK3 upgrades start shipping March 5th, majority in late March, April and May, new MK2.5 or MK3 upgrade orders in June 2018. We are very sorry for the delay on these upgrades (caused by a bad batch of the heatbed PCBs received and doing rework on those), we used the time to tweak MK3 firmware which is a base for MK2.5 one. There’s a long backlog of them but we expect to ship them all by the end of May.
Currently shipping:
MK2.5 upgrades: Week of October 16, 2017 - October, 22, 2017
MK3 upgrades: Orders from October, 22, 2017 - November, 22, 2017 
MK3 ordered together with MK3 redesigned Multi Material upgrades start shipping in May 2018, majority in June, new MMU for MK3 orders in July 2018. If you want your printer sooner, please contact our support at to split your order, we'll help you. The new Multi Material upgrade is delayed until the beginning of May. We ported the same Multi Material as we have for MK2, but we were actually developing an alternative system which we like a lot more and I chose to use that one instead. We, however, need a little bit more time for manufacturing some of the parts. You can get more details in the article.

How did we do?
