Up Mini 2

Our school needed 3D printers that work reliably, quickly and to a high quality. The Up Mini 2 fits those criteria perfectly. Our students love making projects in 3D and these printers will absolutely be running hot from now into the future!

Broken printer, garbage customer service

I bought an Up Mini 2 a couple of weeks ago and while unboxing I noticed that a crucial component was broken. I called your store immediately and asked for advice but was blown off. I haven't heard a thing from you since. Very poor customer service. I'd give zero stars if I could and I won't be back.

This product is end on line. No longer in production.

The Up Mini 2 has now been replaced with the Up Mini 2 SE which can be found here- Up Mini 2 ES
