Why buy the UP Plus 2 3D printer?
The UP! Plus 2 is a desktop 3D printer extending the functionality of the award winning UP! format of 3D printers. It is of a compact design but with a good sized 140mm x 140mm build area.
The UP! Plus 2 is extremely versatile. The printer resolution (Z- axis) can be varied between 0.15mm – 0.40mm for maximum control over your 3D printing. It can print with both ABS and PLA 3D printer filament, both types of filament our available to buy from our store.
It comes with UP! 3D printing software that reads standard .STL files that runs on both Windows 7, Vista & XP or Mac OS X and it connects to your computer via USB. The Software allows you to select the layer resolution, shell printing and you can tell it to pause printing at a given height.
It comes with a fully automated platform calibration system as standard that provides automatic platform leveling and platform height calibration, this is an extremely useful and worthwhile addition to the functionality of this 3D printer.
The extruder has a built in heat and wind shield to help prevent injury and redirct the air to help cool the 3D printer filament material for a great finish. The metal build platform can heated to 105° and the Perf board (3 are provided) help with securing your 3D printed object to the platform, reducing warp.
