Hi 1st Gen Mini owners,
I bought the Up Mini ~10 years ago, just to place it on the shelf after printing a view Lego parts.
Now that I have a couple of children around in my Family I reactivated it and since it prints quite well, I am not planning to replace it.
I am currently using the latest version of Up Studio 3 and am curious, if there are others of you out there, still printing with the mini. If so, please feel free to write down some best practices or recommendations to maximize other Mini users’ experience.
I did the simple heat bed upgrade by soldering a 90° thermostat onto the board (which can be found googling ksd-01f d90).
I am currently printing with PETG quite well after figuring out that I need to let the doors open to prevent heat creep.
I don’t think the part sub settings works for the mini, which is sad, because I would love to increase the first layers temperature to get rid of the raft.
Does anyone know if retraction is supported on the up mini? I feel like whatever I set up regarding retraction, nothing really changed.
Currently, since the latest Upstudio3 version is in beta state and already 1 year old (2022-11-06), I wonder if anyone was able to control the mini using other slicers out there, I know it supports GCode, so I guess it might be possible.
Alternatively, if anyone from Tiertime reads this, can you please give us a quick statement about the current development of a stable version of Upstudio 3 (Soda)?
I am happy to collect all of your insights for further readers, also if you stumble over this within the next few years
Thanks in advance,
