UP! Mini 3D Printer
Introducing the UP! Mini 3D Printer, the much anticipated follow up to their highly acclaimed flagship 3D printer, the UP! Plus. The all-new UP! Mini 3D Printer, with its full metal, heat retention enclosure and groundbreaking price.
The UP! Mini is based on the simplicity of a traditional inkjet printer, with a snap in printer head, slide in build table and clip in consumable roll. You are now ready to start printing your big ideas into Three Dimensional usable models out of tough ABS plastic.
There is no sacrifice on build quality with the UP! Mini, with its enclosed steel construction, double linear bearings on each axis and a temperature stabilizing build chamber; it is ready to produce quality parts on your desk within 15 minutes from switching it on.
“The UP! Mini is the result of thousands of hours of field testing & valuable feedback from our rapidly growing UP! user community.”
- Build footprint of 120 x 120 x 120mm with heated build table.
- Heat retention chamber to reduce warping.
- Double linear bearings on each axis – ensures consistent build quality throughout the entire print process.
- Print speed of 9mins per cm3.
- Layer resolution of 250 microns.
- Chip free and open consumables – You can use any suppliers ABS roll of 1.75mm plastic with your UP! Mini. The UP! Mini consumable is an open design so you are not locked into expensive consumables as opposed to expensive inkjet cartridges.
- USB interface for inkjet simplicity print spooling, you can unplug your computer once the UP! Mini starts printing.
- Includes the Smart UP! Software, tools and a full roll of plastic to get you started.To Start
The printer is assembled and ready to go out of the box and you'll be printing models in 15 minutes. No need to spend weeks tinkering or fiddling to get average quality 3D prototypes with a cheap DIY 3D printing project, the UP! Mini 3D Printer is ready to go out of the box for either personal or professional 3D Printing.
- Best 0.25 mm accuracy
The toughness of ABS model equals to 30% of injection parts, which can be served as end-use parts directly. And its best accuracy of 0.25 mm enables models produced by the UP 3D printer can be used as assembled parts. A good example is some parts in the UP 3D printer are produced by the printer itself.
- Portability & Ease of Use
Super light < 5 kg. With its smart size (245 x 260 x 350 mm) and 11 lbs weight, the UP! 3D printer can be packed in a common suitcase. Everyone is able to carry it easily. Also, after loading the digital model, the UP! 3D printer can work independently without computer.Automatic support generation. As you load your design, the soft will automatically generate support for your design so that there is no misprint no matter how complicated the design is. Simply peel off the support layers when the print is finished and you will have a precise, high quality print.No training or previous expertise required. Anyone can operate it as easily as a common paper printer. Just load the UP! software on your computer and the printer start printing using either an PC or an Mac. With automated material loading device, the model build process requires nothing from you.
- Heat and Wind Shield
Have kids at home as you print? The heat and wind shield protects users from accidentally brushing up against the “hot-end” extruder. The wind-shield also re-directs air to cool the hot-thread as it is being extruded resulting a finer finish.
- Open Source is Wide Open
Any .STL file can be imported into the UP! software environment and once you are in, you can scale, rotate and position and prepare it to print!
