Aleph Objects Inc., the makers of the Lulzbot 3D printers, released KITTAZ, a kit version of its TAZ 4 3D printer.

Aleph Objects releases LulzBot TAZ 4 3D printer back in May. TAZ 4 boasts a spacious 11.7in x 10.8in x 9.8in print area with a controllable heat bed that can print large items, or many small items at once. But the TAZ 4 is priced at $2,194.95, for those who love to take projects into their own hands but can't afford the TAZ 4, Aleph Objects is offering now the full bill of materials required to build your own LulzBot TAZ.

The KITTAZ comes with digital KITTAZ operating manual including operating, printing, and troubleshooting information. It also includes all components with clear labeling and separated packaging, as well as pictorial assembly instructions for streamlined assembly.

Once built, users will also have the option to upgrade parts that don't come standard, such as the LCD controller and components or the fully assembled electronics case with components for a second extruder. You can also upgrade to other TAZ accessories, like the Flexystruder, allowing a wide range of printing material options.

The best part is that the KITTAZ is only $1,595, meaning you can save $400 on a LulzBot TAZ 3 3D printer.
