Re: Up Mini Crashed & now Not being recognized by PC

Well that sucks, guess im better off putting a arduino or reprap controller in there, $1100 vs <$100

i know they don't have a crazy markup on their parts, holy crap. Guess Im done with Up! And pp3dp products! Junk.

Is this covered under warranty?

Hey I've broken off a nozzle inside the heater block assembly during a routine cleaning, the threads are impossible to remove without drilling, I tried micro chiselling it but only damaged the block further. Would this be something covered under warranty? Printer is an Up Mini and approx 2 months ol...

Re: Print bed not center on up mini - Losing out an inch of

So are you printing off the edge of the perf board with your prints? If not then that is norma. As the Mini's board is physically the same size as the UP Plus's board I am pretty sure they limit the size of the items slightly in software I know you could print bigger things on it. I have always fou...

Print bed not center on up mini - Losing out an inch of perf

My prints show up on the perf board off center, more pushed towards the front than the rear, models I print always have more space at the back of the perf board. How do I center the bed so I can get the most of my prints, right now im losing a good inch or so of print bed.

Re: Some questions (7) from a new Up! Mini Owner.

Thank you guys for the replys, it helped me significantly! Is there a pause feature? Besides selecting the box before it prints. I want to do a dual color print and pause to change the filament, but I can only see a "pause at layer #" value... I do not know what layer I need to pause at. Is there a ...

Can print an object then unplug the usb from the computer? Will this alter the model in any way? My 2yr old pulled the usb out today and I frantically...
