New printer in the house: Prusa i3 Mk2.5S (no MMU2 anymore)
The Prusa was owned by BadPractice and now belongs to Metalab since the MMU2 was installed (see 2018-04-11_Jour_Fixe). It is available for everyone to use. The MMU was dismounted, because it had complications.
If you have no experience with 3D printing please ask for help and/or read instructions online.
