Description

The UP! Plus 2 3D Printer is the next generation of 3d printing made simple and affordable. It is the successor to the best selling and award winning UP! Plus. It includes all the great of award winning Up Plus with the addition of automated platform leveling and automatic platform calibration. Gone are the days of failed prints due to incorrectly calibrated or leveled build platforms. A sensor conducts a nine point measurement check of the platform surface before each print. The new V2 Up! software then calculates the optimal height and angle the nozzle should travel  to ensure parallel motion to the platform. It does the hard work for you. Optimum adhesion to the platform every time you print! A true out of the box 3d printing experience. Smart.

Performance has also been improved in slice processing speeds, so you can start printing even faster.

Using additive manufacturing technology to lay down successive layers of ABS to build up a printed three dimensional model. No more long waits to send your design concepts to a 3D print bureau and risk giving away your intellectual property. 3D Print whatever you want, whenever you want and as any times as you want.

The printer is assembled and ready to go out of the box and you’ll be printing models in 15 minutes. No need to spend weeks tinkering or fiddling to get average quality 3D prototypes with a cheap DIY 3D printing project, the UP! Plus 2 3D Printer is ready to go out of the box for either personal or professional 3D Printing.

This is the latest version which now includes the Version 2 Up! Software and 0.15mm (150 microns) build high resolution!

You can now print models completely hollow and raft less. 

Up PLus 2 in Sparkle Red

The Up Plus 2 is sleek design shown here in Sparkle Red. The open design makes it easy to view and remove models from the build platform.

Up Plus 2 linear bearings

A great feature of the Up Plus 2 3d printer is the uses high quality liner rails, ensuring high quality prints and quite operation.

Perforated build platform on the up plus 2

Another great feature of the Up 3D Printers is the use of perforated heated build platforms. The perforations secure printing material to the base. When the print is completed the board can be removed from the 3d printer and removed safely without applying and force on the 3D printer. This is ideal for classroom environments.

Up Plus 2 Auto Height Detection Mechanism

Up Plus 2 Auto Leveling Mechanism

The Up Plus 2 features an Automatic bed leveling system. No Need to adjust the print bed. This cleaver system takes a 9 point measurement on the build plate, from which it establish the orientation of the build plate. The clever Up software then compensates for the orientation- ensuring that the first layer prints evenly.

 


 


 The Up software provides the ability to pause the print as nominated layers so you can change the filament to a new colour, then continue printing. This enables you to get creative and print multicolor parts and controlled intervals.

One of the great strengths of the Up 3D Printing software is the way it builds smart support structures that easily break away from the model, resulting in a greater ability to print complex models and provide cleaner undersides of your 3D printed parts.

The print quality of these machines is amazing. This is a large print in ABS.

The easy to remove smart support structures allow the finest details to be produced.

Unboxing the Up Plus 2 3D Printer 

Up Plus 2 3d printer winner of the Make Magazine best print quality

The UP! 3D Printer Plus (known as the Afinia H-Series 3D Printer in the United States) won the 2012Make Magazine 3D Printer Buyer’s Guide competition. Out of 15 3D printers that were reviewed, it won Best Overall ExperienceEasiest Setup, and tied in the Easiest To Use category. It also scored a 5/5 for print quality (and that was before they upgraded to a 0.15mm resolution!).

The multi award winning Up Plus 2 wins the class of "Just Press Print" in the Ultimate Guide to 3D Printing 2014.
