Recently named by All3DP as the best 3D printer for beginners, the Tiertime UP mini 2 ES is an easy to use machine that boasts a handful of impressive features. Like its predecessor, aptly called the UP mini 2, the new and improved ES model is equipped with touchscreen controls, a closed build chamber, and WiFi connectivity.
The UP mini 2 ES also comes with safety-conscious features like power failure protection and built-in HEPA and activated carbon air filtration system to maintain a healthy working environment. Other noteworthy attributes include automative nozzle height detection and an enclosed spool container that prevents moisture from ruining your filament.
However, there is one downside to the UP mini 2 ES, and that’s the teensy 120 x 120 x 120 mm build volume. Nonetheless, this is a 3D printer that prides itself on functionality and usability, making it an affordable and highly capable option for beginners or the educational setting.
