Bulbasaur Mini Mod

There are many benefits to using open-source hardware: one is the knowledge that even if the company you bought it from ceases production, there will always (as long as someone is willing) be repairs available. You can take your open-source hardware to bits and learn how it works without voiding the warranty, you’ll never have interoperability issues, you know you’re buying quality rather than a branding ‘experience’… and, if you want, you can always modify your device to look like a Pokémon character.

That’s what Neil Hengist has done with his Prusa MINI. The modifications are entirely aesthetic, so the operation of the printer is unchanged. There’s no need to move switches or any electronics, but Neil does recommend having a couple of spools of Pistachio Green PETG on hand.
