Comes as a KIT
The TwoUp with Heated Bed is the larger version of the OneUp, the lowest-priced 3D printer on the planet. The TwoUp adds 75mm on both the X-axis and Y-axis in the build area; the Z-axis stays the same at 125mm. This version comes with an upgraded power supply, basalt heated bed with silicone rubber heater and DIY electronics connectors to connect the heated bed to the electronics. A heated bed allows the printing of ABS and nylon (among others) by reducing the amount of warping when the plastic cools after a print. All corners of the Internet recommend a self-built printer as your first printer so you learn the ins and outs, the ups and downs of 3D printing before making a big purchase. Each kit includes a very reliable and forgiving extruder that makes it easy to get great-quality prints with minimal effort. This is a do-it-yourself, self-assembly kit that generally takes 2-8 hours to assemble based on user skill level.
