How noisy is the Up Box Plus?

Post by uplus2user » Fri Feb 16, 2018 6:42 pm

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.

Silent, no, pretty quiet yes. I sit right next to a couple of them at work and they blend into the background noise.

The makerbot 5th gen we have is far louder than the Upbox, and the Markforged is much quieter. Neighbours should be no problem, a TV, radio or washing machine is far noisier!

Stop faffing about and buy one already 8-)

I run mine in my bedroom and sleep with it. And I'm the sort of person that can be woken up by a TV through a closed door on the other side of my house.

Even though I can hear it, it's generally a pretty dull and constant noise that you can block, though I did buy a white noise generator (Google Home mini) that makes it impossible to hear the printer over.

It's ok. No neighbors complaining about it. And I have 2 :D
A lower resolution / faster print makes it a bit noisy but it's not something really disturbing.
