Tiertime UP Mini 3-D printer

If you are studying Arts or Engineering, a 3-D printer just might be the tool you need for your next school project. The good news is that they’ve become much more affordable. If you own one you won’t have to stand in line at the lab.

One that comes to mind is the Tiertime UP Mini 3-D printer. It’s as easy to use as a traditional inkjet printer and with its UP software, you can be up and running fairly quickly.  It can “print” objects from ABS or PLA (Polylactic Acid) plastic in sizes up to 120mm cubed with detail as fine as 200 microns. Its housing design will protect any pets or little ones running around the home from any potentially hot parts. It also shuts off automatically when the printing is done. Good news is it won’t take up a lot of valuable desk space if you are in a small dorm as it measures only 12.6″ x 9.4″ x 18.3″ and weighs a mere 6 kg.  It retails for $849.99 and is available at London Drugs   Read more…at Canoe Tech Blog.
