LulzBot Mini review

The LulzBot Mini is a compact 3D printer made by LulzBot, a US-based manufacturer. Overall, the Mini is praised for its reliability and ease-of-use. It’s a go-to 3D printer for entry-level and advanced users looking for an efficient 3D printer.

Mini features

  • Open-frame: The LulzBot Mini has an open frame which makes it easy to monitor and maintain but also noisy.
  • Open-source: Aleph Objects, Inc. company, owner of the LulzBot brand, has a firm commitment to Libre Innovation (Free Software & Open Source Hardware). This manufacturer publishes their hardware designs and software packages under the GNU General Public License (GPLv3) and/or the Creative Commons CC-by-SA 4.0.
  • Great customer support: users praise LulzBot’s customer support service for its reliability and availability.

However, the Mini requires a constant connection to a computer to complete prints successfull. Furthermore its relatively small build platform can be a limitation for users looking to print larger objects.
