UP! Mini 2 - Changing Z-axis

Tiertime's UP! 3D printers offer great value and high quality. That is, unless something / someone accidentally breaks part of it. Wish I had taken more (and better) photos, but hopefully some of this will be useful.

Act like a real (with a pinch of Jurassic Park/World) raptor
