Lulzbot Opens Forum For Its 3D Printer Owners

Lulzbot AO-100

It's no secret that I love my Lulzbot AO-100 3D printer. Over the last few months I have printed about 10lbs of filament through the machine and have only ran into a few small problems, which were remeided by a quick email or phone call to Lulzbot, or by emailing other lulzbot owners I met on Reddit. Today Lulzbot has just added a forum for owners of their 3D Printers which will make trouble shooting even easier as this will provide a sort of archive for information on upgrades, repairs, and tweaks that the community has generated. We have already joined and began posting photos to the site! Head over to http://forum.lulzbot.com and sign up for free!  Read more about Lulzbot Opens Forum For Its 3D Printer Owners

A new player in the custom PC game will be making its debut in the coming weeks.

While he would not reveal any tidbits about what is to come, we do know that they are designed in Germany and made in Taiwan, which will be a nice change from the made in China stuff we see every day.
