The UP Mini 2 is not only affordable, it is very reliable and easy to use just like the first generation UP Mini. This second generation UP Mini 2 comes with many new features relating to it’s usability, it is portable (has an aluminum handle) and has the ability to connect wirlessly so it can be controlled via a WIFI connection enabling the user to control the 3D printer via mobile phone APP’s.
Other features of the UP Mini 2 are its LCD touch screen which provides an even better user experience, very clear and easy to use with all the easy to read information on the screen and selected by just the touch of a finger. Built in HEPA filtration reduces the 3D printing air emmissions and provides a healthy odor free printing environment.
There are 5 settings available for the layer thickness starting at 0.15mm and it goes to a max of 0.35mm. The nozzle height can be controlled manually, there are 9 reference points for you to adjust or there is an auto detect setting which uses a thin metal plate detector, this is much simpler as the UP Mini does all the hard work for you. Another nice little feature is that the filament spool carrier houses a handy tool drawer complete with a selection of tools.
Overall a really excellent printer that is versatile, portable and extremely easy to use with features and build quality only found in the more expensive machines. This 3D printer is a must for hobbyists, modelmakers and prototype engineers who want a machine that will produce excellent results without all the time consuming setting up.
