The UP! 3D Printer has arrived!

UP! 3D Printer

3D Printing Systems has kindly loaned ANAT an UP! 3D printer (thanks Bruce!).  Assembly was surprisingly straightforward (compared to the MakerBot at least).  It took us a while to install the software and figure out how to set the height of the build platform though – but we got there in the end.  Once it was configured, we successfully printed out a clip (see below).  The resolution is impressive with a very smooth finish on 3 sides.  The bottom side is pretty rough due to the raft sticking – however Bruce has told us about an update (the V7 wind barrier), which helps in removing raft and support from printed objects, so we’ll be printing that out next.
