UP Mini 2

Easy. Pure. Portable


Small but Powerful

Everyone’s favourite little desktop 3D printer, the UP Mini, has been given a makeover both inside and out. The UP Mini 2 has been upgraded with new features like controlling the printer through WiFi, HEPA filtration system, touch screen control and resume on power outage! The Up Mini 2 packs a powerful punch for its size while still remaining affordable and easy to use.

3D Print from your iPad

Control at the palm of your hand

Are you using an iPad? The newest software, UP Studio, has made it that much easier to wire up your iPad to the UP Mini 2, without actual wires! How awesome is that?

You can control the printer straight from your iPad! Simply connect your printer to the iPad via WiFi. Just download the app for your iPad from Apple App Store and have the ability to print with your UP Mini 2 at your finger tips.

Made for MakerSpace

Launch your classes into success

It can get a bit chaotic trying to manage a handful of printers in one room. The UP Studio allows you to personalise and name printers individually; commandeer your fleet of UP printers from one centralised hub, be it an iPad, laptop or desktop.

Active Air Filtering

All 3d printers when printing with ABS or PLA have been characterized as high emitters of Ultra Fine Particles. See the report on UFP emissions: http://goo.gl/Eb2SAo. Having a 3d printer with HEPA air filtration system dramatically reduces your exposure, expecially in an office or classroom enviroment.

Usability

3D printing made easy

Combining users’ favourite features from the UP BOX and UP Plus 2, the UP Mini 2 is now capable of reducing exposure to particle emissions with the built-in HEPA filtration system; auto-levelling and auto height detection; improved printing resolution of 0.15 mm per layer.

The touch screen on the printer is a new added feature which allows for ease-of-access control. You can also re-print up to 10 most recently printed files, it’s all stored in the printer! UP Mini 2 tries its best to make it convenient for you so you can print on the go.

Connectivty

Print wirelessly through the network

You can now connect and control your UP Mini 2 3D printer remotely via WiFi. This will give you, as a user, the ability to print without being in the same room.

All you need to do is set-up your UP Mini 2 to join the same network as your computer or device with WiFi access and you’re good to go. Too easy!

No more being tethered to the computer; make your workspace and floor cable-free.
