UP! Mini 3D Desktop Printer, 100-240V AC, 50-60Hz, 200W

October 18, 2013 - Comment

The UP! Mini 3D desktop printer has an all-metal enclosure and fabricates objects using 1.75 mm ABS (acrylonitrile butadiene styrene) or PLA (polylactic acid) thermoplastic filament (sold separately), with a vertical resolution from 200 to 400 microns (0.20 to 0.40 mm). The printer can build objects to maximum dimensions of 4.75 x 4.75 x 4.75 inches/120 x 120 x 120 mm (H x W x D). The included printer management software runs on a Windows or Mac OS X computer, reads Standard Tessellation Language (STL) files generated by computer-aided design (CAD) software (sold separately) and commands the printer through the provided USB cable. The enclosure guards against room drafts to help minimize temperature fluctuation, and helps reduce operational noise and odor. A build platform heats to 51.4 degrees C to help provide thermal stability. A perforated cell board is held to the platform by full-side mounting channels for a secure fabrication base. Solid metal guide rails and precision slide bearings help ensure precise movement. The belt-driven stepper motors meet the National Electrical Manufacturers Association (NEMA) standard ICS 16-2001.

What a splendid, wondrous machine! I had some trouble understanding how to get this setup to print, typical of many foreign-made items. For example, I could see thatthere were LEDs to light the work surface, but they did not light. A call to the US based support group yielded a phone call with the information that turning the lights on required a simple “click-click” on the lighted button, on the front of the machine! In certain cases, the instruction manual said to go to the “Print” section of the software controls, to set the nozzle-to-platform distance, but when I tried that, I found the “Print” word greyed out, so I couldn’t use it. This was because you first have to have loadeda .stl file into the UP program. Once I got that straight, the UP! Mini 3D Desktop Printer has not stopped churning out beautiful, strong,intricate parts! It is now on the last of 5 parts of a 3D scanner, (Laser base, laser mount, camera base, camera mount, & enclosure),and they are…

UP! Mini 1st week review Giving my feedback after my first week using the UP! Mini…Firstly, you should have a basic understanding of 3D Printing principles before you buy this product, that isn’t to say you need to be an engineer. I had heard about 3d printing, got very interested, did some online reading, and today I am making parts! You should be technically oriented and have patience for tinkering when things go awry.Some people have complained about the clarity in the directions… I would be forced to agree, however I feel like it’s mostly attributed to it being a poorly translated Chinese manual. The information is there if you have the mind to decrypt it a bit.Down to business… I get almost all perfect prints, the issues I see when printing on the UP! Mini are not unique to the UP! Mini… ABS edge warping (level your platform!!!), and derailment (i.e. when your printer forgets where it is for xyz)… All things that can be both user error and printer issues are…
