This is something I've had my eye on for a while ( not the Prusa specifically) and I'm just curious if the additional expense maybe does buy you something after all.
No, Prusa does not need it. It works good out of the box as long as you follow the instruction they provide. It has a lot of nice features and constantly updating firmware and programs to make your life easier, save your time and frustration. We used Prusa for a few years. No additional expenses were spent. Prusa released some 3D printed parts update for the 3D printer during this time you can print and install. They also updated filament sensor. The new printers they sell go with this updated sensor and updated parts but if you want to update reliability and performance of you existing Prusa printer you have to buy and print those parts and install them on your printer. But Prusa worked good as is without latest updates. We also have pretty expensive Raise3D Pro2Plus 3D printer and it has a lot of problems, Prusa is more reliable and easy to use so if the part fits the Prusa tray and if we print it out of low temperature plastic like PLA we print it on Prusa.

Additional expenses for Prusa may include chamber you can build for the printer to print parts in more temperature consistent environment for better reliability, maybe hardened nozzels if you want to print composite filaments, maybe nozzles with bigger or smaller diameter if you want to print big parts faster or small parts with finer details.

I actually have no clue what they're made from. As a mechanic yourself, I know you've got a pretty good idea of what they're like, but I don't know what compound that would be called.

I've seen guys carve one-off cam chain sliders out of Dekrin a few times, but I don't think Delrin is something that can be bought on a spool. At least, I don't know what Delrin really is beyond it's trade name. A sort of nylon, I suppose?

Thanks for that info. I hadn't thought about the things you mentioned in the last paragraph, but that makes a lot of sense. Reading the ad on Prusa you linked to originally it was clear to tell they were implementing updates in to the new machines vs just telling you how to upgrade it yourself. The machines are quite a bit more costly, but that part left a good impression.

About to start my enclosure so I can print in abs/asa etc

First job is a handle for the bed as it's now a glass bed. This one have a built in go pro mount so when I finally sort out a Pi with octipy on I can check on my prints while I'm away

Noob question about the enclosure. Why is it needed for ABS? Fume Hood type thing?

That and also requires a higher ambient temp which I can't control in the room. With the printer in an inclosure the printer will generate a constant heat, so I'm told

From my understanding, one of the issues is ABS prints hotter and shrinks more as it cools, so keeping the whole thing warm until its done helps prevent warping. Ideally you want the print kept just below the "just below the glass transition temperature" to minimize the energy needed to bond layers / improve bonding, as well.

The crazy thing is that the idea of an enclosure to keep yer FDM print warm was fucking PATENTED. That's expired now but of course the patent holders patented variations as well, so its still not common to find FDM printers with enclosures for sale (except from the patent holder of course).
