Okay. You’ve come across 3D printer kits, build-on-yourself 3D printers, but have not hoping that you would also have a 3D printer for your beloved desktop? Absolutely there is and that is what technology doing now. 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. 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.
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. It has a build platform 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. Objects created by additive manufacturing are built by dispensing successive thin layers of molten material onto the moving platform base from the robotic extruder nozzle. Sounds like you’re in a spy movie right? The material is commonly a thermoplastic or High-density Polyethylene (HDPE) filament .The belt-driven stepper motors 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.
