UP Plus 2

Small on size, big on features

  • 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

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 best 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.

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 19 minutes into the video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x4plMvIzlA0.

A clear winner and easy to use, with feature-rich software and impressive print quality.

Smart Support

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 print software will work out where it needs to support the model during printing. The 3D Printer prints the support material in a lower density at the same time as printing the part.

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.

The included Smart 3D Print software included with your UP Plus 2 3D Printer is very easy to use and is very smart. It automatically calculates the required support material for the most demanding 3D models. Just load any STL file (Just about every 3D CAD modelling software can export to STL). It doesn’t matter how complex your 3D model is, it will churn through the 3D model at lightning speeds and then start printing it out.

Are you ready for the ultimate 3D Printing experience?

  • I’ve seen the UP 3D Printer in operation at three different organizations and it has made a favourable impression. I believe it could serve as a tool for product design and concept modelling as well as for education and training in additive manufacturing.
