UP BOX+ Printing a Building

We just released the UP Studio 2.5 with Material Profile Manager to support better tuning for 3rd party filament. In this week’s Tertime’s VLog, we would like to show how MPM works. We will use UP BOX+ to print a model provided by TAP Models. TAP Models is a company based Australia providing 3D architectural models for their clients. They used their proprietary service to decompose a building into pieces, then 3d print each of them and assembled them together to have a vivid representation of the actual building in 3D.

In this video, we use the Polymaker’s PolyMax PLA to print the model. Ploymaker is a 3D printing material vendor providing variety of filaments for FFF technology.

We first use the MPM to define the new profile.

Post processing needs some work:

Removing the support; use the super glue to assemble.

The building model turns out all right, and Tiertime UP BOX+ worked well with Polymaker PLA with the MPM new feature.
