Printer Idenfication Help?

Hey, all...if I am posting in the wrong place, please let me know.

I picked up this printer yesterday from Facebook Marketplace. I got it all plugged in and calibrated Z and it printed a few test prints pretty nicely.

I have attached some pictures, but obviously it has been modified quite a bit (linear rails on all axis, modified PSU, Raspberry Pi w/camera.) Can anyone tell me what I have here or what it may have started as?

The steel sheet shown in the pictures is from my MK3+

This is my second Prusa, I bought a new (kit) MK3S+ last summer and have really been enjoying it. I wanted a second machine so that I can print multiple things at once.

That looks like a modified Mk3 or Mk3S, the silver powersupplies were supersceded with Black Delta Powersupplies  before the Mk3S+ came along

Yeah…its looking like its most likely a heavily modified clone of a MK3   

Im basing it mainly on the stepper motors which are not similar to any i have seen on a genuine Prusa while researching
