-* If the length is '''311 mm''' long (±1mm) you have the MK2(S) or MK2.5(S) Bear 2.0 older shorter frame. You will find printed parts and all details in this page: [https://github.com/gregsaun/prusa_i3_bear_upgrade/blob/master/optional_parts/bear_2.0_upgrade_mk2-2s-2.5-2.5s/README.md|optional_parts/bear_2.0_upgrade_mk2-2s-2.5-2.5s/README.md]
-* If the length is '''331 mm''' long (±1mm) you have the MK3(S) Bear 2.0 frame which is the same frame as Bear 2.1 MK2(S), MK2.5(S) and MK3(S)(S+). Download the files from this page: [[Topic:Frame]]

+The Bear X axis (X ends) are ***not*** compatible with the stock Prusa MK2.5S or MK3S extruder.
The Bear X axis (X ends) are compatible with the Bear Extruder, MK2.5 and MK3. They are also compatible with the BondTech Prusa upgrade extruder if you use the appropriate X-Carriage.
== What filament should I use for my printed parts ==
-All our project comes with recommend filament type in the '''print settings''', be sure to check those. In general, we use plain PETG (without carbon fiber nor glitter).
+All our project comes with recommend filament type in the ***print settings***, be sure to check those. In general, we use plain PETG (without carbon fiber nor glitter).
Plain PETG is what we use to test and develop our parts so if you use something else you might experience various issues (brittleness, rusting, flammability, etc.). PETG is also the most reliable filament you can find in term of print quality, accuracy, mechanical properties (not too brittle but not too flexible), ease of use and flammability.
