Personal and Professional Desktop 3D Printer

Everyone’s favourite little desktop 3D printer, the UP Mini, has been given a makeover both inside and out. The UP Mini 2 has been upgraded with new features like controlling the printer through WiFi, HEPA filtration system, touch screen control and resume on power outage! The Up Mini 2 packs a powerful punch for its size while still remaining affordable and easy to use.

Combining users’ favourite features from the UP BOX and UP Plus 2, the UP Mini 2 is now capable of reducing exposure to particle emissions with the built-in HEPA filtration system; auto-levelling and auto height detection; improved printing resolution of 0.15 mm per layer.

The touch screen on the printer is a new added feature which allows for ease-of-access control. You can also re-print up to 10 most recently printed files, it’s all stored in the printer! UP Mini 2 makes it convenient for you so you can print on the go.

Are you using an iPad? The newest software, UP Studio, has made it that much easier to wire up your iPad to the UP Mini 2, without actual wires!

You can control the printer straight from your iPad! Simply connect your printer to the iPad via WiFi. Just download the app for your iPad from Apple App Store and have the ability to print with your UP Mini 2 at your finger tips.


Active Air Filtering

All 3D printers when printing with ABS or PLA have been characterized as high emitters of Ultra Fine Particles. See the report on UFP emissions: http://goo.gl/Eb2SAo. Having a 3d printer with HEPA air filtration system dramatically reduces your exposure, expecially in an office or classroom enviroment.


Powerful and portable

Transport your UP Mini 2 safely and with style: the aluminium handle makes it easy to carry. Simply lift the handle up for hassle-free relocation of the printer and push it back down for an unobtrusive and seamless touch when you are done.

Not finished that print, but need to go? Simply switch off the Mini 2 mid-print and take the printer with you! Yes, you can switch on and continue printing where it left off. The new UP mini 2 is one neat little printer, packed full of features!

Print wirelessly through the network

You can now connect and control your UP Min 2 3D printer remotely via WiFi. This will give you, as a user, the ability to print without being in the same room.

All you need to do is set-up your UP Mini 2 to join the same network as your computer or device with WiFi access and you’re good to go. Too easy!

No more being tethered to the computer; make your workspace and floor cable-free.

Compact and efficient

By: on 4 January 2017
Have always loved Tiertime range of printers as they are very user friendly and reliable. Easy to print straight from the box, under half an hr set up and config. Unfortunately Wi-fi is not yet properly supported by Up studio but will be interested to see how it all works once the software is updated. Auto nozzle height detection is great however unlike the Up Plus 2 you still need to manually calibrate the platform - no sensor provided with Up Mini 2. Overall great machine for an affordable price.
