What's so special about the Up Plus 2!
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.
Why is Auto Leveling a Big Deal anyway?
3D Printers require their print bed to be perfectly level to the print head or the model will not stick to the bed and may fall off, or warp. Leveling the bed is one of the tricks-of-the-trade that everyone new to 3D printing
has had to learn. But now, the new generation UP Plus 2 removes that requirement with clever Auto leveling
capabilities so you can get on with printing faster and more easily than ever before.
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.
Auto generation of Support Material when needed
The clever 3D Print software that comes with your 3D Printer does the hardest job of all. No matter how complex your 3D model is, the visual printer software driver will work out where it needs to support the model during printing.
Then the 3D Printer prints the support material in a lower density at the same time as printing the part. That’s smart stuff! Once the model has been printed, you simply just break away the support material. So no need to worry if your part or model will print. Since it is all automatic, all you need to do is click ‘Print’. The UP Plus 3D printer and software will analyse your design, see where support will be required and then build it all for you. No worries! Just an easy to use 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. Make Magazine editors said:
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 within the Make review 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 19 minutes into the video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x4plMvIzlA0.
Print Size, Speed and Resolution
140 Wide X 140 Deep X 135mm High
Select the resolution you wish to print from 0.15mm (150 micron), 0.2mm, 0.25, 0.3, 0.4
The UP Plus 2 prints at 3-30mm⊃3⊃
Filament Size : 1.75 (IE NOT 3mm)
ABS (acrylonitrile butadiene styrene) thermoplasti Plastic
: which is the same plastic as Lego. If you slice your models into parts, print them in components and then just glue using Acetone (nail varnish remover).
PLA (Polylactic acid)
: which is derived from corn and is biodegradable (over 5-15 years). The big advantage of printing with PLA is that it can be used for investment casting / lost wax casting. In general, PLA is not recommended for the UP machines, as they do not deal with this media as well
The machine comes with a 12 month warranty. Bilby CNC is an authorised reseller and service professional for 3D Printing Systems, who are based in New Zealand and provide a back to base
Australiasian Warranty for UP machines. If you have any problems just contact us and we can take care of everything for you.
The UP Plus 2 comes with our easy to use Smart Visual Print Driver software (free download). Just open up your STL (Most 3D CAD software packages can export to STL) – with the software you can rotate, scale and resize to your heart’s
content. Much like a traditional 2D where printer where you can choose different settings, you can also choose your 3D print settings. Layer thickness, fill type (Honeycomb hollow or solid), quality and amount of Smart Support you
want for each print. If that’s too much for you, don’t worry the default settings will work just fine by just clicking ‘print’!
Printing out multiples of the same thing?
It’s easy! Just click 'reprint' . It saves time by printing an exact copy of the previous model.
- Scale, Rotate, Move & Print
- Supported File Types: STL -The majority of 3D CAD software can export to STL, so the UP Plus 2 works with Autodesk Inventor, Solidworks, Rhino, 3DSMax, Creo and many others.
- Extrusion temperatures 260 and 200 degrees
- Print Preview with material usage and time estimates
- Automatic placement
- Repeat last print
- Rotate, Resize, Scale, Move 3D object
- Select layer thickness
- Select print speed vs. quality
- Variable fill of models with honeycomb fill.
- Fine to large honeycomb mesh
- Smart Support
