Design and Specification
I would just say that UP mini 2 looks no doubt great. Its fila station is actually over the top (fila station is actually is such casing where you put your filament). The outer part of this printer is fully covered with plastic material and even also the station. Its door is actually transparent so you can easily the inner platform glowing by LED light. It comes with a handle made of aluminum. All of this make this UP a very portable 3D printer.

SOFTWARE & PRINTING
In the first look I noticed on the 3D printer was actually touch screen. It provides clear instructions and it is easy to use. You will be happy to know that using this touch screen you can initialize and calibrate the 3D printer to get ready for printing. And using this you can also select the desired filament. The good thing of this 3D printer is that it automatically selects temperature for you.
UP Studio App
In order to use this properly you need to download the UP 2 app for printing. You can even upload your STL files for printing. After setting up your print option the software automatically begins to slice the model and then send to the printer.
One best solution for me that I simply connect my 3D printer via the provided USB cable. Then it becomes very easy to send files peacefully and successfully.
By having this 3D printer you can have a lot of great features to have best print files. In the UP Studio software you can set fine tune and you can choose the infill, support and also layer thickness and you can do a lot more fine tuning. During printing if you open the door then printer stops automatically and after that if you insert that door back then you get the option to resume that again.
