Techniques, insights and epiphanies


These notes are based on my experiences with the Prusa i3 Mk3 and Artillery/Evnovo Sidewinder X1 printers. If you are using a different printer, please verify the hardware details are similar.

This section contains notes on wide-ranging 3D printing-related topics that don’t fit neatly into any of the other categories. Each page focuses on a range of settings and capabilities to solve specific problems.


Contact and feedback

You can find me on the Prusa support forums or Reddit where I lurk in many of the 3D printing-related subreddits. I occasionally drop into the Official Prusa 3D discord server where I can be reached as bobstro (bobstro#9830). You can email me directly at
