March 22, 2018

LulzBot is a product line of Aleph Objects Inc; a Free Software, Libre Innovation, and Open Source Hardware company, recently named the Fastest-Growing Privately Held Computer Hardware Company in the U.S.They actually have a world record printer farm of 109 LulzBot TAZ printers

 

Aleph Objects was founded in January 2011 and headquartered in Loveland, Colorado, USA.The company has fulfillment centers in Chicago,Illinois, USA; Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA; Sydney, New South Wales, Australia; Toronto, Ontario, Canada; and London, Great Britain, UK. Having started off in the days of RepRap printers (with mostly 3D printed parts), they have gone to improve their designs and tailor their products for the mass market.

 

Aleph Objects achieved 2,782 percent three-year sales growth with their company's award-winning LulzBot line of desktop 3D printers, parts, and plastics, leading all computer hardware companies. Their business model focuses around the development of Open-source hardware for 3D printing with full support for Free and open-source software.The company is most well known for its LulzBot 3D printer product line although using some extruded aluminum railing and other mass-production components still remains true to RepRap principles by having many components 3D printable. Due to its fully open source hardware and open source software design, the LulzBot has received "Respects Your Freedom" certification from the Free Software Foundation. In addition, the Lulzbot printers are often used in open-source tool chains on open source projects. For example, Superior Enzymes used a LulzBot TAZ in fabricating an open source photometer for nitrate testing.

Similarly, LulzBot 3D printers are used in projects to create low-cost prosthetic hands. Due in a large part to relative ease of maintenance and use, LulzBot 3D printers are one of several desktop 3D printers that have been recommended for libraries by reviewers. 

 

In its 2014 Ultimate Guide to 3D Printing special issue, Make Magazine the LulzBot TAZ was awarded for having the "best documentation" of all the hobbyist-grade 3D printers that were tested.The TAZ 5 is also rated higher than any other 3D printer on 3D Forged's list of best 3D printers.

On June 15, 2014, a film crew from the Canadian-produced television show How It's Made visited the company's headquarters in Loveland, Colorado. There, they filmed a segment featuring LulzBot TAZ 4 3D printer, which aired in an episode of How It's Made on The Discovery Channel in 2015.

On May 17, 2016, LulzBot released the TAZ 6, which featured such upgrades over the TAZ 5 as, automated-bed leveling, automated nozzle cleaning, and an enclosed power supply, as well as improved firmware, support for new filament materials, a better heat sink, and more. In 3DForged.com's review of the TAZ 6, Brent Hale called the TAZ 6 "the best overall 3D printer I have ever used.
