When set up properly, 3D printing is a robust and reliable process. But in the first days in Uganda we struggled with our initial prints due to the instable power grid. The outages resulted in failed prints that stopped mid-way. To overcome this limitation, we opted for a solution: A UPS, short for uninterruptible power supply. This device ensures that our printer can print independently for as long as 20 minutes on a full charge of the device; thus short outages are now being compensated. We are happy to say that after installing the device, we were able to print without further complications.
