UP mini 2 FAQs

  • How easy is it to set up and is it difficult to use?

    The UP mini 2 is set up to work straight out of the box, in fact it should only be a matter of minutes before it is up and running. And it’s portable so you can move it from room to room. Its ‘Click and Print Technology’ gives makers fast and accurate printing and the easy-to-use UP 3D printing software imports .stl files from most 3D CAD systems.

  • What kind of computer do I need?

    The UP mini 2 is compatible with computers running Windows XP, 7, 8, & 10 on Mac OS.

  • What materials does it use?

    The UP mini uses spools of 1.75mm ABS plastic, which is strong, flexible and safe to use – as well as the biodegradable PLA.

  • What can I make with it?

    Your own UP mini gives you the freedom to create whatever you want. Using strong, flexible ABS plastic, or PLA, you can print any 3D object that fits into the 120 x 120 x 120mm build platform, or print individual parts of a bigger model which can be glued together after printing.

  • How long does it take to print something?

    It depends on the size of your design – you’ll quickly get an idea of how long your designs will take to print. Typically, a 10 x 10 x 10mm cube will take around six minutes to print.

  • How do I maintain it?

    There isn’t a lot of maintenance required at all – just keep the machine clean, in particular the nozzle and perforated board.

  • How often should I replace the printing material?

    It depends on how often you use the machine. Each reel has enough material to print a variety of 3D models, depending on the size and complexity of design.

  • How difficult is the material to replace?

    It’s a very simple process and change over from reel to reel takes just a few minutes.
