Dear Uppers,

We are pleased to announce the official launch of our new website, the Beta Version.

Ever since we released our first generation of UP 3D printer in 2010, has been our central hub for all the Uppers for more than 5 years. It is the time that we rethink of the future of UP 3D Printer, and hence the will be focusing on users of UP 3D Printers. We will create a global community for all the Uppers around the world to innovate, to share ideas and, most importantly, to have fun.

Building is an ongoing process, and it needs a lot of efforts and patience. There will be a lot of imperfections if you look at it from different perspectives, and we need the helps from every one of the Uppers to make this website a more pleasant place for ourselves. We have lots of plans for it, and new features will be added from time to time. will be phased off gradually, and it will be used for other purposes in the future. For now, all the accounts on will be migrated automatically to For detail of the migration, please visit the forum in or

If you experience problems logging in to, have issues with other features, suggestions or questions, please contact us via email, or post your problems in the forum of

Happy printing
