The UP mini 2 boasts a wide range of features, just like the first generation of the UP mini, though there are some major upgrades which have greatly improved the printer overall:

  • Better print quality – Capable of printing in 0.15mm layer thickness with new mechanical design;
  • Touch screen control – Provide better 3D printing user experience;
  • WIFI connection – WIFI support, enabling better user control of the 3D printer via mobile APPs;
  • Built-in HEPA air filtration – Reduce 3D printing air emissions and provide healthy and safe 3D printing environment;
  • Aluminum handle, and separate spool container with build-in toolbox – Easy to carry and handy to use.



These features have helped improve its ease of use, which makes it far more appropriate for newer users, such as for use in schools, kid’s projects at  home and printing for beginners.
