Up Mini 2 review -

Post by netpenthe » Sat Sep 24, 2016 4:42 am

After having the Up Mini 2 for a few weeks i've written a review.

It is reviewed from the POV of a school - in particular a primary or elementary school: https://www.makersempire.com/blog/3d-pr ... r-schools/

I think this printer is a huge improvement over the other Up printers (which I have) - it is not perfect yet, but many things have been done right!

I am curious about your turntable spool holder. How is the spool held on there? Or do you have it resting on top of it and you are letting the gravity of the roll do its thing.

Thanks

spool is not held down, just sits there and spins around.

so far we've found it to be the best/easiest solution

Hello all,

Here is a link to the spool holder I use. It attaches to the handle on the up mini 2 and allows you to use almost any filament spool.
