The wait is finally over. The most anticipated desktop 3D printer of the year is now in stock and shipping across Australia! What printer are we talking about? The UP MINI 2, of course.
If you haven’t rushed over to the EduKits marketplace to get your hands on one of these already, here are a few of the things you’ll love about this new 3D printer.
The in-built touch screen makes using this printer seriously easy. Want to change over materials? Need to reprint something? The touch screen means that these tasks previously requiring a USB connection can be done with just a few touches.
HEPA filtration system
3D printing often involves putrid odours, but not with the UP MINI 2. Not only does the built-in air filter remove dangerous particles from the air, but it also seems to remove the bad smell with it.
Aluminium carry handle
You can actually pick up this printer and take it with you. Literally. Not only is it light, but it also has a slide-up aluminium carry handle which makes it easy to move the UP MINI 2 to another room or another building.
Obviously, the designer of this printer wasn’t content with maintenance and printing being able to be done right from the printer’s touchscreen display. With its built-in wifi connectivity, I can calibrate my printer, change over materials and start new print jobs from another room using my iPad.
Automatic bed levelling
Because everything else about this printer was so easy, calibration had to be that way too. Instead of playing around for ten minutes, trying to find the perfect bed height, you could just press a button and have it done for you in ten seconds.
