UP Mini 2
Compact, Portable, User-Friendly!
Has a touch screen and is WiFi enabled. Can be controlled from a mobile app.
When it comes to desktop 3D printers, the smaller the better for a lot of people. Compact printers have always been popular, and Tiertime’s UP Mini 2 3D printer is no exception. The Chinese printer manufacturer has found a great deal of success in their line of UP printers, and the UP Mini 2 has been loved for its ease of use and cost effectiveness. Tiertime has described it as their “entry level” printer, ideal for educators or those just getting started in 3D printing. Tiertime unveiled the new UP Mini 2 at the 2016 CES.
Like its predecessor, the UP Mini 2 is compact, portable, and user friendly – in fact, it improves on all of those characteristics. It’s the first printer in the UP series to have both a touch screen and a WiFi connection, enabling it to be controlled via mobile app and making it even easier to use than the original. The single extruder has a quick change mechanism for easy replcaement, and the printer features onboard file storage and automatically generated, adjustable Smart Support Technology. It’s about as portable as you can get with a 3D printer – the UP Mini 2 sports an aluminum handle for easy carrying. It also comes with a separate spool container, a nifty little case with a built-in toolbox to store your finishing tools.
The UP Mini 2 is about the same size as its predecessor; it has the same build volume of 120 x 120 x 120 mm, with an improved print resolution of up to 0.15mm layer thickness. Like the original mini, the printer is fully enclosed, but its door is now transparent so you can watch the printing process, lit by LED lighting on the inside. It’s eco friendly, with a built-in air filtration system to reduce emissions, and it’s just aesthetically nicer to look at. Like most compact desktop printers, it’s expected to be a popular one for the classroom.
