Okay. You’ve come across 3D printer kits, build-on-yourself 3D printers, but have you not hoping that you would also have a 3D printer for your beloved desktop? Absolutely there is, and that is what technology doing now. Now I am providing you with the latest invention at your own ease. Yes at your own ease, because right now, we have UP! Mini Desktop 3D printer. You’ll definitely love it that you likely want it your own.
Is it not wonderful? When you’re tired from work you could just went unto your desktop and make wonderful designs and fabricate those designs. It could possibly be a hobby. And hey you could also start your own business. Jewelry crafting, home decorations, fashion garments and many others all depends with your imagination and of course your own 3D printers.
Is this Unable to impress your professor in architecture? Now here is your long awaited best friend. Using UP! 3D printer you could create superb architecture designs and display in in the fair. You’ll professor will be surely impressed on how accurate and proportional the structure is.
But why is need a desktop? Desktop printers are more stable compared to portable printers. They are more solid ad has more endurance in terms of power. The Desktop printer works well at home, offices and at school. UP! Mini Desktop 3D printer has a solid all enclosed metal body and can fabricate your 3D creations using a 1.75mm ABS (Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene) or PLA (Polylactic Acid) thermoplastic filament that is sold separately (in case it was all used up).
Your 3D creations will not be just your imagination anymore because this printer could make it in front of you right away. The printer has a vertical resolution of 200-400 microns can build objects to maximum dimensions of 120 x 120 x 120 mm. UP! Mini 3D printer has a dimension of 350 x 240 x 350 mm. Power supply should be about 100-240 V AC with a frequency of 50-60 Hz and power consumption of 200W.
What about the software?
Well do not worry because everything will be provided. The printer management software can run in any Windows or Mac OS X computer. The printer can read input formats of either Standard Tessellation Language (STL) files generated by Computer-aided-design (CAD) software. (Take note that CAD software is not provided and is sold separately). Commands can be directed to the printer via the provided USB cable.
Why there is an enclosure?
The enclosure does not just guard room drafts but also help minimize temperature fluctuations, reduce operational noise and odor. This platform is heats up to 51.4 degrees centigrade to help provide thermal stability. A perforated cell board is held to the platform by full-side mounting channels for a secure fabrication base. The solid metal guide’s rails and precision slide bearings help ensure precise movement.
How does the printer operate?
UP! Mini desktop 3D printer fabricates physical object directly from computer-aided design (CAD) data sources. From this computer aided design, designs are transferred from the host computer to the 3D printer via a USB disk. From the USB, the program would run for around many permutations but this would take less than a minute and when your printer acknowledges the presence of the coded model you can now push the print button. Objects created by computer in coded form are built by dispensing successive thin layers of molten material onto the moving platform base from the robotic extruder nozzle. The speed and accuracy can be adjusted and depends on your own personal reference or when it is required. Sounds like you’re in a spy movie right? Yes, the inventors of these 3D printers nowadays might have drawn inspiration from these movies. The material used in the filament is commonly a thermoplastic or High-density Polyethylene (HDPE) filament when electricity from the motor drives heat from the extruder, the filaments will melt and be dispensed by the nozzle
It is important that every product is certified for quality assurance. It is also to ensure the health and safety of the consumers. If a product is not check for certification, it will definitely give risk in the part of the customers. Does UP! Pass the standardized requirements for quality assurance in 3D printers? The belt-driven stepper motors that is equipped inside UP! 3D printers meet the National Electrical Manufacturers Association (NEMA) standard ICS 16-2001.
If you had already bought your own make sure that it has the following provided with you namely UP! Mini 3D Printer, Extruder Head, ABS spool. USB cable, Power adapter (20 V), Filament tube, Screws, Perforated cell board, Tool kit (includes: 2 pen knives, tweezers, hex wrench, hand shovel, pliers, gloves, and a nozzle wrench). You have also to make sure that a manual is with the unit together with sample pictures.
For printing purposes, the 3D printer has a build speed of 10-100 cm3 / h and the printer weighs 5 kg.
Why buy UP!?
Aside from the detailed specs from above, UP! is a desktop printer. This means that this is suitable for professionals, office works, business creations and even your own child’s assignment in science.
To avoid shipment problems, read and check the entire shipment policy and ask for number to allow personal tracking. Upon arriving of the package, check for damage like tearing or stripping of plastic tapes.
Upon opening of the package, check if the parts and the whole printer unit is enclosed in a plastic container. Check if there is a sign of preopening and etc. Make sure all the external parts are intact. Look at the manual, there should be a list together with a numbered positioning of external parts for your own assistance. Also, always read the manual first especially if this is your first time with 3D printers. Get the concept and make a general idea. For a positive result, ask technical support to make the testing of the product because they know better.
