UP Plus 2 – Next Generation in Professional 3D Printing

  • Redesigned model inside and out, engineered to provide continuous dimensionally accurate 3D printed parts
  • Best-in-class desktop 3D Printer and easiest to use
  • Innovative auto leveling platform calibration and automatic height sensor
  • Improved 3D print spooling speed

 

UP Plus 2 3D Printer

Using a 3D Printer just got easier, the UP Plus 2 features automatic platform levelling along with automatic platform height detection. The all new UP Plus 2 is the latest version of the award-winning UP Plus 3D printer. It is closely based on its predecessor, but with a host of innovative new refinements. The newest way to print quality 3D models right from your desk for visualisation, collaboration, and functional prototyping testing.

Award Winning 3D Printer

The all-new UP Plus 2 is based on the award winning UP Plus 3D Printer (also known as Afinia in USA) that won the Make Magazine Ultimate Guide to 3D Printing Buyer’s Guide Competition. [tagline_box title=”Make Magazine editors said” description=”A Clear winner and Easy to use, with feature-rich software and impressive print quality.“] The only printer that managed to print the owls nostril was the UP 3D Printer, even 3d printer bureau parts from Shapeways and Ponoko didn’t manage this test correctly. Watch some of the results 20 minutes into the video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x4plMvIzlA0.

Full Metal Jacket

With a strong and durable steel structure and linear bearings on each axis, the UP Plus 2 is built for making quality parts endlessly 24hrs a day. The registration of each layer is absolutely spot-on the previous layer. So you get constant build quality every print.

Easiest to use

There is no other 3D Printer that is as easy to use as the new UP Plus 2. With it’s innovative auto levelling (the hardest job for any 3D Printer operator is to level the print platform, as it is essential to have a flat and level surface before your 3D model is printed.) Everything you need is in the box! Our printers are easy to use, with minimal setup, USB connectivity and include the Smart visual print driver. 3D Printing has never been so easy. Just load in your STL and click ‘print’ and away you go! There is no need to worry about over hangs or under cuts. [tagline_box title=” description=”From the home, the classroom, and to the office. Our 3D Desktop Printers are easy to use for everyone! With a network of local Australian and New Zealand resellers with local support.”]

Ideal for the Prosumer

With the “UP Plus 2” 3D Printer you can print professional (150 micron detail), tough and functional parts faster and more affordable right on your desk. Pair that with our open consumable design, you can keep the cost of printing low. When using our filament, the cost of printing is about 6-8c per gram!  When selecting a 3D Printer it is important to take into account the total cost of ownership.  Traditional inkjet printing has been locked down to manufacturers inks, the UP Plus 2 uses an open consumable design, if it meets the specifications you can print with it and save!

Create Super Large Parts

Just because it’s a desktop 3D Printer, doesn’t mean you can’t make super large parts. By slicing your model into several components, then printing and gluing together you can make some impressive models. For example, the Eiffel Tower in the picture, stands nearly a meter tall and is made of thirteen separate parts. Amazing engineering, amazing 3D printing.

Materials

ABS Plastic

The UP Plus 2 can print in ABS (acrylonitrile butadiene styrene) thermoplastic which is the same plastic as Lego. ABS is the plastic of choice for 3D Printers, as the printed parts are tough and durable. The parts are built tough and can be used as usable parts and functional end-use parts. Removal of support material is easy and safe. No dangerous chemicals are required, just simply break away the support that is printed in the same material but in a lower density. You can slice your models into parts, print them in components and then just glue using nail varnish 

PLA

The UP Plus 2 3D Printer can also print with PLA (Polylactic acid). PLA is derived from corn and is biodegradable. The big advantage of printing with PLA is that it can be used for investment casting / lost wax casting. In general, PLA is not the recommended plastic to print with, as the material starts breaking down after a few months and printed parts are fragile.  The material is very sharp when broken and can be a hazard when removing support material from the printed parts.

What’s in the box

Everything you need is in the box, ready for you to start turning your ideas into real parts. You don’t require any extras. We even give you a free roll of white ABS plastic filament included with your new 3D Printer.
