Videos on the RMU-Mk3 Filament Buffer

Chris's Basement

We asked Chris Riley of Chris’s Basement to have a look at our RMU Mk3 (Prusa Filament Buffer). We sent him a kit of parts and the STL files and he made it himself. 

The review Chris gives here is in his is own words and other than supplying the kit of parts, we have not paid or sponsored him for this review.

We were blown away by what he had to say. See for yourself.

You can also see the RMU in action later in the video with material changes 

 
 
 
 

Technical challenges- PassThru adaptors

Early on we saw one challenge is that PassThru adaptors come in different sizes. M10-PC4 can come with a tapered thread
