Moving from MK3S -> MK4 - what to do with the MMU3 ?

I was an early adopter of the MMU3, and I have had great results with it on my MK3S. My intention was always to upgrade to the MK4 when support for the MMU unit was available.

I'd like to go ahead and get the upgrade kit for the printer (MK3s->MK4). What additional steps - if any - will I need to take to move my MMU3 to the MK4 ? Any additional parts to purchase / print ? 

I'd be glad to hear from anyone who has gone through a similar upgrade path.

Thank you!

Best Answer by vhubbard:

You need to order 2 upgrade kits to get the new cable, improved parts and upgraded Nextruder parts for the MMU3 to work with the MK4. 

1. Upgrade for the MMU3  MMU3 from MK3S+ to MK3.9/MK4

2. The MK3 to MK4 Upgrade kit to convert the MK3s

That should give you everything you need.  

Prusa is MKS3S+ w/ MMU3 (formerly MMU2S), 2 Prusa MINI+, Octoprint

And while're we're posting links: You find all ressources for the MMU3 at the conveniently short URL https://prusa.io/mmu3 (same for prusa.io/mk4, prusa.io/mk39 and so on - easy to remember).
