the time has come my friends today it is the original Peru so mark 2 up against log this is one of my favorite types of video to do where we take two 3d printers we run the same g-code side by side we compare speed and quality of print just to see how it turns out this really isn't a scientific effort as much as it is a fun exercise but I do really enjoy doing it if you watch the last log upgrade video we swapped the board out with a mini Rambo from ulta machine so both of these printers are getting pretty close to the same thing they even both run Prusa firmware the biggest difference is log has a clone v6 ion with a PTFE tube in it and the genuine Prusa has a genuine v6 all-metal hotend so we're going to take the Sanji code all in SD cards run them side-by-side and then compare the results we're even using the same filament we have orange PLA from IC 3d because I have a ton of it so let's get started will queue up the prints and see how it turns out [Applause] [Applause] [Applause] [Applause] [Applause] [Applause] [Applause] [Applause] [Applause] [Applause] and we're done it was a really close race I even ran two Vinci's just to make sure there's a look at the Perot so one hour and 30 minutes and there's log one hour and 31 minutes so log was a minute behind the mark too but that was all in heat up time when it was heating the bed in the hot end and I'm guessing that's because the mark 2 uses a lot higher quality power supply then log does but print time and speed was pretty much identical but how did the prints look let's check that out now [Applause] so which print do you think is better I'm going to give the quality to the mark too but just slightly the print off a log was a lot better than I thought it would be it did have a few strings and a few inconsistencies also the print was a lot shinier than on the mark too so I'm guessing log is printing a little hotter than it says it is and the inconsistency I'm gonna chalk that up to the mark to having a lot higher grade hot end as well as a Regent aluminum frame so maybe with a few more upgrades to log we could achieve cruces status I hope you enjoyed watching this video as much as I did making it if you did please consider giving it a thumbs up or subscribe to my channel if not leave your thoughts in the comments below and as always thanks for watching

  1. That’s pretty darn close! I’d call Log pretty much done! (Because DIY printers are never totally done.) Put a 5kg spool on her and put her to work! Great Video!

  2. It was hard to tell given the display base was the same color as the prints, but I could definitely see the differences. Logs' benchy looked a little more rough on the sides and some flat surfaces than the Prusa.

  3. I wonder Pre Board upgrade what would have happened? My question is how much did the board change affect the print?
    All said and done I think the MK2 as purchased from Prusa may be cheaper if you consider paying yourself $8.00 per hour to build it.
    EXCEPT I LEARNED A TON OF NEW STUFF!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  4. Thanks Chris, any thoughts on a video of a working Prusa MMU2 s. I have been trying and I simply can not get consistent prints. I think consumers should have a solid non biased reference.
