Re: Can the Up Box+ print using PETG?

I've printed with PETG. Works fine. Can't say much about the HEPA filter, but I don't assume it's filtering anything anyway. Might want to get a stainless nozzle though (Microswiss) because they seem to work better for higher temp prints. So, I just change to a stainless noozle, put in the PETG fil...

Can the Up Box+ print using PETG?

Hello, can the Up Box+ print using PETG? If so, is it as simple as just putting in the filament and everything will be done automatically? Is the built-in filtration system effective in filtering the toxic nano particles if I print using PETG rather than ABS or PLA?

Up Box Plus vs Up Plus 2

Hello, I had an Up Plus 2. I was happy with it. Besides print volume and filtration system, how are these two printers compared? Does the Up Box Plus produce better quality prints than the Up Plus 2?

It looks like I can buy either one depending on which company I purchase from. Given a choice, which would be better?

What happens when filament is running out during printing?

Given that the spool is 0.5kg, what happen if the filament runs out during printing? Does the printer allow the users to change filament and then hit some kind of continue button to resume the printing task? Do we have to start printing all over again?

Do I also need to close the door when printing PLA on Up Box+?

Hello, on some printers, it is recommended to keep the top cover open if one wants to have good quality prints when printing PLA. On the other hand, one should keep the print volume warm when printing ABS. It looks like the UpBox+ needs to have the door closed all the time. How does this work?

How noisy is the Up Box Plus?

Hello, if I buy the printer, I may use it in the evenings. How noisy is this printer when printing in a very quiet night? Is it silent? Will people next door or above me hear it? My nosy neighbors may complain if they hear the sound.

Re: How often shall we replace the air filter of the Up Box+?

Thanks Owen. So far, my choices are: Up Box+, Raise3D N2+, Ultimaker 3 and TAZ 6. I consider Up Box+ because I had good experience using Up Plus 2 and large size and its filtration system. Does it inherit all the good things (such as nice working auto leveling, nice printing, good software) of the U...

Are there other PLA filaments made in the USA that work well with the Up Box Plus?

Hello, are there PLA filaments made in the USA that work well on the Up Box Plus? Do I need to make a holder to hole the filaments so that they could be fed into the extruder smoothly?

Re: How often shall we replace the air filter of the Up Box+?

Thanks. I have to choose between Up Box + with a filter that "might" work or a larger build volume printer. The problem is nobody knows how effective the filter is.

Thanks Owen. Is there an indicator to tell the users when to change? Do you find such filter helpful?
