The Q3D OneUp, also known as QU-BD Oneup, is a personal FDM 3D printer kit. By assembling the printer on your own you will have a better understanding of how it works and how to easily modify and maintain it. It is one of the cheapest 3D printers available on the market. It delivers decent quality print at an acceptable speed. Thanks to its open-source design, it can be easily upgraded to enhance its printing performances. For example, the small print bed can be easily replaced by a larger version. Also, the machine is optimized for printing with PLA materials but with an inexpensive optional heated bed, it will be able to print with ABS and Nylon with ease. The structure itself might be reinforced by printing some additional components. It is widely used by rookies, hobbyists, and students to print a wide variety of toys, gadgets and funny parts.

Despite its basic functionality, one user has been able to print such a great castle.
This 3D print is the result of a torture test. With 60mm/s print speed and 0.1mm layer height, it turned out enough good and precise.
The Q3D OneUp is an FDM 3D printer that can print layers at 50 microns. This way you can produce parts with smooth exterior surfaces. By printing some sturdy additional components, you will be able to reinforce the overall structure obtaining finer and more accurate outputs.
The Q3D OneUp has a 0.4 mm nozzle, giving you the best balance between speed and detail.
The print head runs on rods with linear bearings, making the design more simple, lightweight and effective, all characteristics that are desirable in a 3D printer.
Q3D OneUp prints with ABS, PLA, PETG and other materials.
The extruder comes with a fan for printing with PLA-type materials. By cooling the model down, it reduces warping, stringing and, generally, makes for higher quality prints.
The Q3D OneUp prints with 1.75 mm filament from any vendor, providing you with a wide choice of materials.
The build area is 3.9 x 3.9 x 4.9 inches (100 x 100 x 125 mm). You can print larger models by slicing them into multiple parts and then joining them.
The Arduino-based electronics include an SD card slot to enable computer-free printing. You can also operate the printer and transfer your 3D files via a USB-tethered computer. By installing an optional LCD display you will be able to directly control it.
3D models can be printed from computer via USB cable and SD card.
The printer open software works with 3D models in the most common formats. You can use any commercial slicers available on the market to prepare and print your files. The manufacturer suggests using the Slic3r one.

Q3D OneUp shows a total-black metal frame. Its stylish look makes it ideal for multiple environments, from the garage workbench of a hobbyist to your home desk.
The printer dimensions are 10 x 10 x 15 inches (254 x 254 x 381 mm). It weighs 9 lb (4 kg). The filament roll is placed apart from the machine. You might need to print a dedicated holder to enhance the feeding process.
The price of the Q3D OneUp is $199.00, which is reasonable considering its functionality and upgradability.
