Colorado-based Aleph Objects, Inc., an Open Source Hardware company, has today officially launched its latest addition to their line of LulzBot 3D printers, the LulzBot Mini.

Unlike most common products that are developed secretly behind closed doors, Aleph Objects said it shared every step of the LulzBot Mini's development through a publicly accessible archive updated hourly that includes specifications, schematics, parts, suppliers, and more for every prototype the company has built.

"Thanks to our active community, the LulzBot Mini is coming to market with technology that has already undergone thousands of hours of use and testing," said Jeff Moe, President and CEO, Aleph Objects in a press release. "It's this ongoing dialogue with our users that has not only driven and informed the development of our new printer, but also enabled us to deliver a 3D printer that we believe is best in its class."

The new printer features a heated bed that self-levels during the start-up process. Other specifications include:

  • Build Envelope: 152mm x 152mm x 158mm (6in x 6in x 6.2in)
  • Print Volume: 3,650 cm3 (223 in3) of usable space
  • Top Print Speed: 275mm/sec (10.8in/sec) at 0.18 layer height
  • Layer Thickness: From 0.05mm to 0.50mm (0.002in – 0.020in)
  • Print Surface: Heated borosilicate glass bed covered with PEI film
  • Maximum Hot End Temperature: 300°C (572°F)
  • Maximum Print Bed Temperature: 120°C (248°F)

  • Weight: 8.55kg (18.85lbs)
