3D Printer Description
The UP! Mini 3D desktop printer has an all-metal enclosure and fabricates objects using 1.75 mm ABS or PLA thermoplastic filament.
The included printer management software runs on a Windows or Mac OS X computer, reads Standard Tessellation Language (STL) files generated by computer-aided design (CAD) software and commands the printer through the provided USB cable.
The enclosure guards against room drafts to help minimize temperature fluctuation, and helps reduce operational noise and odor. A build platform heats to 51.4 degrees C to help provide thermal stability.
A perforated cell board is held to the platform by full-side mounting channels for a secure fabrication base. Solid metal guide rails and precision slide bearings help ensure precise movement.
The belt-driven stepper motors meet the National Electrical Manufacturers Association (NEMA) standard ICS 16-2001.
