The LulzBot Mini 2 3D Printer is a small form factor 3D Printer, built upon the glorious success of Aleph Objects original print of the same size, the LulzBot Mini. The small 3D printer has the exact same foot print as the Mini 1, however, the team over at Aleph Objects have managed to squeeze an additional 20% printable volume in! Amazing!
This 3D Printer is built inside of a folded aluminium chassis, with rugged 12mm Smooth Rods guiding each of the 3 belt-driven axes. This makes the printer incredibly reliable and portable. The Mini 2 also boasts an upgraded RAMBo board, using the Einsy RAMBo board from Ultimachine (with trinamic stepper motor drivers). The trinamic drivers are a huge step up for the LulzBot 3D printers for a number of reasons, notably noise reduction and stall detection. We've used the Mini 2 and can confirm that the printer is whisper quiet (if that!).
The Mini 2 also comes fitted out with all of the upgrades that were previously offered for the LulzBot Mini:
- The Aerostruder - Amazing quality, reliable prints and handles both flexible and rigid filaments.
- The Modular Print Bed System - The metal heating plate, seperate from the Glass/PEI surface enables you to easily swap in print beds and utilise the bare glass side of your print surface with ease.
- The Graphical LCD Screen w/ Rotary Encoder - This LCD screen gives you access to all the features you'd expect (SD card printing, Printer control, etc).
The printer comes fully assembled with a total setup time of around 15-20 minutes, including the unboxing! That's fast.
For slicing and printer control, LulzBot have their own flavour of the popular Cura slicer software, that's tailored for their printers. That means that you get all the benefits of an open-source community, plus the reliability of one of the largest consumer 3D Printer brands in the world.

- Support Material: Printing and Removal
By default, FFF/FDM 3D Printers require the 3D Models they print to grow up from the Print bed at an angle of 45 or more. This is by far the biggest limitation of all 3D Printers. To print models that don't follow that rule, and have parts hanging ou...

- Concrete Lamp
Welcome to my project on how to make a very stylish lamp out of a potentially un-stylish material - concrete! To be honest, style (or rather beauty) is in the eye of the beholder and so I'll leave it up to you to decide if it fits in your surroundings or not. What do you think? All the necessary steps are here but if you don't like reading the just sit back, relax and watch the video instead. When I said to people at work that I...
- HUGE LED Pixel Panel
I’ve always been fascinated by LED screens and seeing beautiful colours mix and merge to create vibrant displays. I also love games, so what better way to combine the two than a giant LED pixel matrix which can play games, display audio levels, really anything you can think of. It uses a Raspberry Pi to controller strips of digital LEDs mounted inside a pixel grid with a diffuser mounted on top. It requires some basic wood...
- Time lapsing in OctoPrint (Properly!)
Now that we have decked out our Lulzbot Taz 6 3D Printer with a really nice looking acrylic enclosure, I'm just about ready to turn on some serious 3D printing work. But before I dive into that endless pool of fun, it's a good time to take 5 minutes and set up our Taz 6 and it's OctoPrint Server with a bed-mounted camera and light system. That way I can monitor my prints from the other side of the warehouse using OctoPrint, and m...
- Meet 'Holman' the Ultimate Bluetooth Speaker
Who says you can't have it all? Good looks and a great sound! My name is 'Holman" and I'm a Bluetooth speaker in the form of mans best friend - a dog of course! Why is my name Holman? Well, that's the name of the manufacturer of the PVC pipe I used and the name grew on me as I completed the project! Whilst this might look like a complex project if you have access to the metric PVC pipe and a 3D printer I'm actually quite easy t...
- The Hipster Coaster
We wanted to make a interactive display of the fun that can be had with DIY projects to take to Sydney Mini Maker Faire. We decided to do so by utilising the TinkerKit Braccio from Arduino.org, alongside some 3D Printing ingenuity, for an engaging display for all ages. Enter the Hipster Coaster in all its glory. All the parts were printed seperately on our family of Lulzbot 3D Printers, later stuck together using a mi...
