LulzBot drops some hardware

Lulzbot, everyone’s favorite 3D printer company, announced some amazing new stuff today. The first is a new version of their customized Cura, my choice for quick and easy slicing/plating for Lulzbot printers. But the really interesting stuff is all the hardware they announced!

Modular Bed System for both the Taz and Mini

Dual Extruder v3, with a new water-soluble support filament

 

A new inexpensive enclosure for either the Taz or Mini, and very exciting for a lot of libraries, a stand-alone controller for the Mini that just clips on and allows for computer-free printing directly from an SD card.

It’s great to see Lulzbot continue to innovate and make their printers even more useful. There’s a reason they are my number one choice for libraries looking at a 3d printer purchase.

LulzBot Mini Enclosure

Libraries everywhere have been asking me about an enclosure for the Mini, and finally there’s one that Lulzbot stands behind. Looks great, protects from grabbing little hands, and stabilizes the print area temperatures so ABS and the like can print more reliably. Win!

Reduce warping, shrinkage, and splitting of 3D printed parts, like ABS, while keeping curious hands away from the heated, moving components of your 3D printer.
