    • The information provided on this page is to help and inform the 3D printing community. We are not firefighters and therefore we cannot be taken as responsible in case something goes wrong with your 3D printer or hardware.

    • Install a fire/smoke alarm.

    • Install a fire extinguisher close to your printer (Class ABC at least).

    • Inform your neighbor that you have a 3D printer and a fire alarm.

    • Keep up to date and comply with, all electrical and fire regulations and laws of your country of residence.

    • Ask for support or advice if you are not sure about a modification you are planning to implement.

    • Regularly check that connectors are fully seated and that no evidence of overheating or melted wires are visible.

    • Order/install hardware and software from trusted and known vendors or manufacturers.

    • Upgrade your firmware to latest stable version.

    • The Bear Project is not a company, it is a project that helps to make your 3D printing experience better. You are responsible for your upgrades and any damage you may cause.

    • The Bear Project can only officially provide support for

    • The original Prusa hardware and software

    • The Bear frame supplied by our official distributors

    • The Bear extruder (with the calibration firmware used only for calibration and selftest)

    • You need to use our recommended filament and print settings because those are the conditions used to design and test our products.

    • We are providing optional parts for other extruders or hardware but unfortunately we don’t have time to test them and so we can’t support them officially. Those optional parts might require different firmware over which we have no control and don’t know how well they are tested. Please refer to their manual, assembly instructions and support.
