Any details? Cost/where we get it from. The splash screen says its available but doesnt give any details about how to get it.

I'm also sure at some stage I read that there is an extruder update on the UpBox + is that correct? (cant see it in the latest announcement) If so is the new extruder compatible with the original upbox and what has changed on it?

Thanks

Am I right in understanding that an original Up Mini would only benefit is getting Wifi from the cpu upgrade? No 0.15mm support or anything else?

Great news, some questions:

Can we install it by ourself without warranty loose?
Are there Install instructions avaible?

Or do we have to contact to our local distributor to install it?

Thanks
Good job

It is not clear if the upgrade contain filament run-out sensor and if there will be apps for android as well. Would it be possible that someone from TT will confirm that?

Doesnt look like the upgrade kit ships to Australia, will it be available locally at a similar price point or alternatively is there any way to have it shipped?

Once we have them in stock in Australia and New Zealand, January or February we'll start offering them. Unsure of the price at the moment.

I have been trying for hours to buy 2 for my 2 UP! printers but I cannot get past checkout :(

I don't mind paying $100 plus $42 shipping for the UK

I want to get my order in before Dec 31 when I presume the price goes back to $1000 each :shock:

Can someone help me?

Did you follow the instructions about registering the wifi with it connected to usb first? Mine didnt show up until I did this.

Got mine and it has set up fine. I have wifi connection and have tested the blackout recovery which worked fine. My only issue now is when I go in to activate the printer, I get an error that says

"ERROR: The server failed to return the activation code"

Anyone know how to solve this. It doesnt stop the printer from working but I assume it will limit the cloud based functions available. Plus I get a popup everytime I log into Studio saying I havent activated the printer.

Hi tegregg,

Please have your CPU serial number ready (should be easily spotted on top of the CPU board), and present it to Helpdesk thru support@pp3dp.com, or PM it to me.

Sorry for the inconvenience.

Joseph

Yup....always connected with usb. Now in contact with support....send pictures of the cpu with which led's are on/off/blinking....
Will send serial number 2 as you suggested in other post. Because I also have a no activation error

cheers

Looks like the Up Plus 2 models are sold out from the USA store (I'm in Canada).

Any chance there'll be more stock before the price goes way up?
