This past fall we had a visitor from the Loveland-based company Aleph Objects, Inc. which makes Lulzbot 3D printers. After the visit, they offered to sponsor us by providing us with a LulzBot AO-100 3D Printer Package.
The printer was basically ready to go – nearly no assembly time and already calibrated. We were printing within 10 minutes of taking it out of the box! For most other printers, it takes many hours to assemble and calibrate.
The LulzBot AO-100 is similar to the MendelMax but with LulzBot’s own printed parts. It prints faster than the Reprap Prusa Mendel we have had at our space since last spring.
Stop by our space in east Boulder on a Tuesday night and chat with us to find out more and perhaps see the LulzBot in action. If you want to use it, become a member and get some instruction from one of our 3D printing gurus. Also, if you are in Denver this Thursday afternoon, you can chat with the LulzBot team and see some of their printers in action at a 3D printing open house, which is being held from 3-6 pm at the 3D Printing Store at 4603 Monaco Street, Denver.
