Caribou 3d Printers going cheap

Tags: #<Tag:0x00007fa34ddde990>

Hello all,

I’ve just bought a second hand Caribou Mk3s 320 and it seems to be in very good order. I paid £360 for it. He has 8 more (selling from a print farm that went bust) - I think he would take offers for several if we wanted in the space, or indeed if anyone else wants one.

Caribou / Zaribo printers are Prusa Mk3s printers but overspec with super rigid frames, mine has a bondtech extruder. I’m running on the Caribou firmware and using prusa slicer and all seems well so far.

Happy Monday all!

i’ll DM you his number. They are also extra tall fyi - mine is 320 tall. Printing very happily in the background as i type

james I can’t dm you because of your settings email me if you like - if you google my full name you’ll get my website and address is in contacts

Weird, I’ve taken a look at my settings and it says it allows private messages. Anyway, I’ve sent you an email, thanks!

In that case I probably can’t use discourse properly. Emailed you anyway

hey, can I have some info too?

So, I got in touch with them and they are very friendly and happy to answer to various questions.

The price it’s fair and the machines seem in a good shape but honesly, it’s not a great game changer from a normal prusa, reading online the stiffness of the printers doesn’t do…anything…especially as they don’t have vulcano hotends or improved cooling.

Still, if you want a prusa printer for a fraction of the cost of a new one, go fot it.

Yeah that’s basically my feeling too. Cheap way to get a prusa. It is extra tall however. Mine printing beautifully

Get a Bondtech CHR nozzle, up the speed until you hear clicking, thanks me later.

Oh? - is that the same as a CHT nozzle? - I need to know more…

It is, the only difference is that I made a spelling mistake.

“Core Heat Technology” for anyone else who had no clue what that was :slight_smile: The top orifice is actually three smaller holes to increase the surface area and therefore the heat conduction. This allows faster extrusion.

To be honest I have no idea. I’ll DM you his details and you can ask

I thought everyone was into the Revo 6 hot ends now for that sweet hot swap nozzle goodness?
