Is there a way to print using Up Plus 2 without a PC?

Hello, as we all know, some printings take hours. Sometimes I need to use my laptop elsewhere. Is there a way to print without a PC? Perhaps the Up Plus 2 has a buffer that after the print job is initialized, one could disconnect it from the computer? Perhaps there is a USB device that would allow printings without a host computer?

Yes of course the printer has an internal SD-card you can disconnect your pc, even close the software (or shutdown your pc) after reconnecting with the printer all the stats (layer nr. and remaining print time) will be updated.

Yes you can disconnect your PC once the file has been uploaded to the UP. It has on board memory.

As a bonus you can reprint the last print by pressing the initialize button twice quickly.

Thank you very much for the very useful information. What is the memory size? Is there a way to tell if the on board memory has stored all the data before disconnecting?

The moment the printer begins to beep, telling you it is about to start printing it has loaded the entire file to the on-board SD card and the PC is no longer needed for the print to complete.
