Re: X Idler broke.

I completely understand the situation with Tiertime. Getting any proper cooperation from our Chinese friends is a bit tasking. I have lived in South East Asia for over a decade, now well-adjusted to the Asian treatment. Just recently we decided to increase our build volume and made a most terrible m...

Re: X Idler broke.

Nice to know you got some feedback, fish and a refund... I purchased the up mini 2 for my teen son back in January 2017. Since we have run over 8 Kilograms of filament through it and the only serious maintenance we needed to do was apply some lube on the linear bearings. Other than that, we changed ...

Re: Extruder stepper makes chugging sound

Hi. I assume you are discussing the up mini 2 and not the ES. I bought the up mini 2 for my teen son several years ago and we couldn't be more happy with it. The first thing we did was ditched the spool holder with plastic tubing and installed an external spool holder right on top of the box.This el...

Re: Will you teach your kids 3D modeling/printing?

I cannot think of anything else that I’d rather do except design and 3D print. I have had my Up mini 2 a week now and today I just sold my first fidget spinner to a friend in school. OK, now I have more orders to fill. I’m only 13, and making money after 1 week. Soon I will be printing my own mini r...

Re: UP Mini 2, initializing stepper motor issues

I had this very same problem on my up mini 2 after one day, and again 5 days later. What I do is turn the unit off and manually raises the build plate platform than let it lower it’s self without clicking the limit switch in. After that I can initialize and print.

Re: UP Mini 2 Improvements

This is the filament holder I needed and it looks to be a great idea, so off to print and install. Unfortunately mine broke off after about 5 minutes. I’m not sure where this 13yo went wrong. I printed with Up premium ABS, though the filament rolls I made this for are non-Up, and they are one Kilogr...
