Lulzbot runs on a philosophy of communal sharing and learning. The firmware, hardware, and bill of materials used for their printers are all open source.
When you buy a Lulzbot Printer, you receive documentation of the printer’s design and specifications, so you can learn the ins and outs of your printer, and adapt it according to your needs, or upgrade it as technology develops.
Along with this free and open approach comes an active forum, where you can find the answers to frequently asked questions and troubleshoot with members of the community.
For the experimenter, Lulzbot has plenty of variety. A large selection of filaments, including ABS, PLA, nylon, wood, polycarbonate, and stone are available for Lulzbot printers.
Lulzbot’s mottos is, “We not only stand behind our products, we stand on them,” and they literally can, thanks to solid engineering and sturdy construction.
Lulzbot printers are a great choice for anyone looking for a larger build volume for manufacturing their designs. Lulzbot even uses the Taz 3 to produce some of their printer parts.
