Can the UP 3D Printer print really tiny objects, is it accurate and precise. This is a question we have been asked many times. We decided to put the UP Plus and recently the UP Mini to the test on a very tiny 2.75mm Nut and Bolt.

The result is excellent. This tiny nut screws onto the bolt with excellent tolerance.The nut and bolt is so tiny it’s a real challenge to hold the parts and screw them together.

This sample was printed at: 
0.15mm Resolution on UP PLus 2
0.20mm Resolution on the UP Mini
Fine Setting
Solid Fill
Genuine1.75mm UP ABS White Plastic
As these parts are so small we printed 2 sets at the same time to give the parts a chance to cool during the print process.
