The newest way to print quality 3D models right from your desk for visualisation, collaboration, and functional prototyping testing.
The new UP Mini Desktop 3D Printer is simple and affordable. Using additive manufacturing technology to lay down successive layers of ABS to build up a printed three dimensional model. 3D Print whatever you want, whenever you want and as any times as you want.
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. In order to create super large prints, simply slice your 3D models into sections, then print as components and glue together with nail varnish remover (acetone).
The clever 3D Print software that comes with your 3D Printer does the hardest job of all. No matter how complex your 3D model is, the visual printer software driver will work out where it needs to support the model during printing. Then the 3D Printer prints the support material in a lower density at the same time as printing the part. That’s smart stuff! Once the model has been printed, you simply just break away the support material. So no need to worry if your part or model will print. Since it is all automatic, all you need to do is click ‘Print’. The UP Mini 3D printer and software will analyse your design, see where support will be required and then build it all for you. No worries! Just an easy to use 3D printer.
With a strong and durable steel structure and double linear bearings on each axis, the UP Mini is built for making quality parts endlessly 24hrs a day. The registration of each layer of plastic is absolutely spot-on the previous layer. So you get a consistant build quality every time.
Just because it’s a Mini 3D Printer, doesn’t mean you can’t make super large parts. By slicing your model into several components, then printing and gluing together you can make some impressive models. For example the Eiffel Tower in the picture, stands nearly a meter tall and is made of thirteen separate parts. Amazing engineering, amazing 3D printing.
The UP 3D Printer can build moving parts in one hit like the bearing in the photo. By leaving about a 0.25mm gap in your 3d design, the Smart 3D Print Software that comes bundled with your UP 3D Printer will figure out the best way to build the moving parts in one hit. Then you simply just break away the support material.
