a everlasting top classic

i have been using my lulzbot mini, since Christmas 2015, so its been 2 years & a litte more than 6 additional months,& to be honest i could have asked for better,i can safely bet on going over 4-6 months or even more without any maintenance or problems,that you can rely on & can trust on its a high quality workhorse it can print finer resolution than most as small as 5% of a milimeter , this printer easy to use reguardless of what level of 3dprinting you are at

the lulzbots are built to last & be very durable when used properly

& their customer service is beyond phenomenal & they helped me with any problems i had even when my warranty expired, plus they offer 3D-Printable blueprints if any of the over a hundred 3dprinter parts i  ever break so i can then print as many as i want.

they include all the tools needed, its packaged amazingly, it comes with a check list to ensure you got quality

they even shipped free resources for me to do a presentation so i had been able to educate a small group about 3dprinting it included things like sample prints, guides, fact sheets,reference materials , etc, & they do it because they care & love to educate people about 3d printing, so everyone can have a equal opportunity at 3d printing

i would not be surprised for this printer to last over a whole childhood, if you want a printer with minimal compromises i would recommend this printer

& lulzbot also has lots of tutorials,& i could not have been in a better situation when it comes to lulzbot

i would however recommend a retainer for the front plug but that's my only complaint , there is little to nothing to complain about.

I love this printer.   It's pretty much automatic.

LultBot mini

I actually went through 3 printers to get to the LutzBot Mini and although it is pricy I am very happy with the results. There is defintily some appeal to setting up printers manually which I usually like but for whatever reason this time around I just wanted it to work most of the time. This is only printer I found at Micro Center that self-levels.

The only downside I found so far with this printer is the bed size. A lot of models found are just slightly too big for 200 x 200 (I think) so I have to scale the model which is now one of my flags for looking out for when I print something.

I will also be glad when these printers can print something faster.

Besides the minor items I have mentioned, if you are looking for a good printer that just prints this might be the one for you. Only time will tell if it lasts or not but I plan on putting it through a daily test just for the fun of it.

Great printer for those who want a printer that just works.

A great printer with a high temperature extruder that is well calibrated well out of the box. Downsides are the build volume is small and not enclosed.

Great printer all around

This printer is great for people who just want to print cool stuff, and not professionally. Very easy to use and understand. It also had one of the best out of box directions I’ve ever seen.

It works great! Since we use it around the students, here are the downsides:  1) I just wish the printing time was not as long... Almost all projects have been 2 hrs. or more.  2) The LulzBot is not enclosed and we have to be careful that the students don't get burned.

Great printer and I really like that they provide lots of well tested material profiles.  I do wish Cura was not so buggy though.

Love this 3d printer

We have had this printer for approx 2 weeks.  Very easy to use and a real good 3d printer for a beginner.
