I want to use this remix vs. the original but I don't think my Prusa MK2S volume will fit this version. Looks like I'm short an inch in comparison.

Coincidentally, that's the printer I have now - I got tired of replacing RAMPS boards on my Robo3D. I haven't checked yet, is it the roof that doesn't fit?

I've started my run on this one. I had some printer issues before. I'm scaling up to 115%. I can't remember my infill. It was probably 15 or 20%. My first attempt at the west wall didn't go so well because of layer shifting. I have since corrected the printer issues and was successful at printing the east wall at 115%. The roof does fit the Prusa bed but I can only print in 10 hour increments. All other parts I can easily print under 10 hours. I'll post the finished product once I get a bit closer. Currently printing the floor. Plan to do the smaller parts over the weekend if time permits. The floor I decided to print at .35 whereas the others I believe I printed at .15mm.

I'm printing the roof on my Prusa i3 Mk2S right now in Christmas Red ABS... so far, so good at 65%. I don't have an enclosure, so we'll see how well it does at the higher layers. I tried to print it yesterday, but had some warping and then a Y-axis layer shift at about 85% done which ruined the whole thing. (The new Mk3 would have detected that and fixed it!)

If you're using Cura, I'd recommend turning on "Z Hop When Retracted" and use the default 1mm for that. Disable print cooling, and use a brim to hold it in place. I'm not using supports for the roof.

Also, you should set your Prusa for High Power mode when printing the roof.
