The Lulzbot Mini is soon to be updated with the release of the Lulzbot Mini 2 - check it out!

The Lulzbot Mini is the closest thing you can get to a perfect, small form factor, desktop 3D printer.

Lulzbot have done a fantastic job in removing the more troublesome aspects of 3D printing from the equation, enabling you to have more touch time with printing. After following the quick start guide, you will be well into printing your first Rocktopus print (within the hour of unboxing!). After that you can simply move on to printing STL/OBJ files from any online library or even design & print your own custom parts.

The entire unit measures 435mm x 340mm x 385mm, with the print volume specifically being 152mm x 152mm x 158mm.  It weighs in at 8.55kg and with the black metal housing/frame, the Mini is built to last. Actually it seems indestructible; printing everything you throw at it, close to perfect every time, it doesn't skip a beat on longer prints either. As the entire design is on the Libre/open source license; replacement parts, upgrades and modifications are also readily available to be printed and added to your Mini.

No one wants bad looking prints, an with the Lulzbot Mini high quality prints are the standard right out the box. The Heated Borosilicate Glass Bed paired with the PEI sheet makes issues with trickier filaments not adhering to the bed yesterday's problem. Bed calibrations are a thing of the past too; the Auto Bed Levelling routine & the nozzle's self-cleaning routine ensures the Mini has a flat, level plane to print on every single print.

The included printer management software, Cura (Lulzbot Edition), provides all the controls you need to load & edit STLs, control and print with your Mini. Cura is also compatible with all the current operating systems, meaning Linux users won't get left behind. Preset filament profiles are part of your Cura installation; tested on Lulzbot machines & updated by the Lulzbot community regularly. These profiles ensure you get great print quality, no matter which filament you decide to load into your tool head; they also provide you with printing tips for your particular machine.

Speaking of the tool head, a maximum extruding temperature of 300°C means the Single Extruder v2 on your Mini is capable of printing almost any filament type. The only real constraints being that flexible filaments aren't recommended on the stock tool head. Both 3mm and 1.75mm filaments can be printed too, although 1.75mm filaments will require an update to the filament size in Cura. If your heart is set on printing flexible models, the addition of the optional Flexystruder Tool Head to your printer will provide you with the hardware you need to get going.

Capture the finer details of high-resolution prints with the Mini too, the vertical resolution is 0.05mm through to 0.5mm. Be aware that 3D printing is typically a balance between print time and quality, you should expect some lengthy print times if you are going down to these finer layer heights.

You get a box full of 3D printing goodness when you grab your Mini, including:

  • 1x LulzBot Mini 1.0 3D Printer (Overall Dimensions: 435mm x 340mm x 385mm)
  • 1x 6ft 18AWG Power Cord Cable (Standard 3 Pin AC Power Cable)

Customer Reviews

  1. Review by Gorkem verified purchaser

    A great, reliable printer priced right. Delivered quickly. I got answers to my questions almost immediately both by core electronics and lulzbot team. (Posted on 18/05/2018)

  2. Review by Roland verified purchaser

    Had this printer for just over a month now. Very well packaged, robust design and ready to go out of the box. What a breath of fresh air after 2 failed (now in the bin) Robox printers. Open source is the only way to go giving you freedom to repair your printer with available spare parts when the warranty runs out - buy Robox and like proprietary printers at your peril!! (Posted on 15/06/2017)

  3. Review by Martin verified purchaser

    First 3-D printer, and it was easy to set-up and use. I have already printed more than a dozen pieces and am please with most of them. Had a little trouble with large pieces when using PLA, but ABS has worked great. Best of all I can run the printer with Cura in Linux! (Posted on 23/02/2017)

  4. Review by Amanda verified purchaser

    Great little printer, came ready to go with minimal setup required. Post the test print it has been easy to learn the basics of it's use. The Core Electronics video tutorials have been invaluable in improving the print quality and understanding of the more advanced features. (Posted on 3/01/2017)

  5. Review by Andrew verified purchaser

    My hobby is building 1/72 scale RC model warships, from scratch. The Lulzbot Mini printer is simply perfect for my needs. I am a rank novice at 3D printing. The LulzBot mini came fully configured and worked like a dream, straight out of the box. In addition the support forums are just great. A terrific product and I could not fault it, given my application. (Posted on 9/10/2016)
