UP! Start Plus 3D Printer

It is high time to print an object into three dimensional reality, but why bother spending hours assembling a sophisticated 3D printer on your own, risking the fact that you may miss a small step and render your expensive investment printing in poor quality or even unusable? The new UP! Start Plus (version 1.1) is a full metal construction, fully assembled in a factory, affordable 3D printer that will let your heart and design print as they please, without having put in the hard labor yourself. Moreover, the new UP! Start Plus is a beautiful engineering machine that resembles a minimalist’s industrial design dream. A real piece of art to have in your office or home. 

The perfect blend of portability and precision, the small footprint of the UP! Start Plus line of 3D Printers all feature 0.20mm-fine resolution mode, as well as a choice of 0.25/0.30/0.35/0.40mm resolution settings and fast/normal/fine head-speed options, giving you the control that you need to print your job they way you need to. Other features across this line are: full metal construction, fully heated /integrated build platform, 5.5″x5.5″x5.25″ build volume!

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! Plus 3D Printer is ready to go out of the box for either personal or professional 3D Printing.

Best 0.2 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 0.2 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!
