The UP! Plus 2 3D desktop printer has an open frame, all-metal white chassis and fabricates objects using 1.75 mm ABS (acrylonitrile butadiene styrene) or PLA (polylactic acid) thermoplastic filament (sold separately), with a vertical resolution from 150 to 400 microns (0.15 to 0.40 mm). The printer can build objects to maximum dimensions of 5.3 x 5.5 x 5.5 inches/135 x 140 x 140 mm (H x W x D). The included printer management software runs on a Windows or Mac OS X computer, reads Standard Tessellation Language (STL) files generated by computer-aided design (CAD) software (sold separately), and commands the printer through the provided USB cable. An included platform-level calibration device can be used with the software to help ensure a level build surface. The software can also read the included nozzle-height detection device to calibrate the nozzle’s vertical position for accurate operation.

The extruder has a heat and wind shield that helps prevent injury, and redirects air to help cool the material for a fine finish. A metal build platform heats to 105 degrees C to help provide thermal stability. A perforated cell board fastens to the platform by spring clips for a secure fabrication base. Solid metal guide rails and precision slide bearings help ensure precise movement. The belt-driven stepper motors meet the National Electrical Manufacturers Association (NEMA) standard ICS 16-2001.

*H is height, the vertical distance from the lowest to highest point; W is width, the horizontal distance from left to right; D is depth, the horizontal distance from front to back.

3D printers fabricate physical objects directly from computer-aided-design (CAD) data sources. Objects created by additive manufacturing are built by dispensing successive thin layers of molten material onto a moving platform base from a robotic extruder nozzle. The material is most commonly a thermoplastic or HDPE (high-density polyethylene) filament.

PP3DP manufactures UP! brand portable 3D printers and accessories. The company, founded in 2010, is headquartered in Beijing, China.

3D printing is amazing and this inexpensive UP! Plus 2 3D printer works quite well. Not as simple as an inkjet printer to setup and use, but impressive nevertheless. The first thing I printed was a demo of four concentric ball bearings connected as a three-axis gimbal (video at http://3dprintingindustry.com/2013/03/02/the-impossible-3d-print/; STL file at http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:51806/#files; download Ball_Bearings_106_balls.stl). I had no idea of what I was doing as far as setting the print parameters. What I chose were the settings I thought might render the…

really good, almost great I had a QU-BD and it was terrible, so I got this instead and it is much, much better. Really solid machine that is reliable.Only negative is that the software really gives you too little control. Luckily its pretty good, but I would like to have a few more options, such as nozzle temp, which should be standard.Overall – really good! Happy with my purchase.
