3D printers make it possible for you to take a 3D design on your PC and print it out as a solid, touchable object. 3D printers can empower a whole new generation of designers, engineers and entrepreneurs to create their ideas.
Introducing - Up Plus 2 3D Printer
The UP! 2 Plus is a small format 3D printer that works straight out of the box and has automatic calibration. The Up! 2 Plus is based on its award-winning predecessor, but with a host of refinements and improvements. In a review in Stuff Magazine with the Makerbot Replicator 2 and the 3D Systems Cube, the Up! 2 Plus came out on top.
It’s a portable, robust and has a small footprint, so it won’t take over your desk.
The UP! 2 Plus 3D Printer is the only printer in its class to have automatic levelling and nozzle height setting.
From unboxing to printing, you can get going in a little over 15 minutes.
It works by slicing a digital 3D model into layers and printing each layer with extruded plastic filament, the material is ABS. Each layer is built upon the last until your model is completed.
This does vary depending on the size shape quality of the model, but as a guide a 10x10x10mm cube takes 6 minutes. A reasonable iPhone 4 case takes roughly 28 minutes, but if you want only the highest quality, you can print one out in 90 minutes.
Nothing other than what is supplied with the UP! Plus 2 is required for printing models. If you don’t have any 3D modelling software the Autodesk 123D range is a good place to start as it is cloud based and free to use. The UP! 2 Plus is compatible with Mac and PC (32 & 64 bit, XP, 7, 8).
