Aleph Objects have released information about 10 new products for near term release. The products include Free Software, tool heads, printer accessories, and filaments that expand and improve functionality and user experience with LulzBot products. The string of new products demonstrates the company’s continued commitment to 3D printing innovation and collaboration.
“Free, Libre, and Open Source development respects user freedom, drives better products, accelerates innovation, and strengthens user communities,” said Aleph Objects President Harris Kenny. “With these new products, the LulzBot ecosystem offers users more evolved tools to make everything.”
Cura LulzBot Edition – To be Released November 22, 2017 – Features better print quality than ever before with new features, including: a fresh and better-organized user interface, improved automatic support material generation, and many new slicing options for advanced users looking to fine-tune their g-code. What goes unchanged is the LulzBot commitment to easy operation through inclusion of factory-tested print profiles for 30+ filament materials across the wide range of LulzBot 3D Printers and tool heads. The new Cura LulzBot Edition remains easy for new users and is now more powerful than ever for experts.
The nine new LulzBot hardware products address three key requests from the LulzBot user community: Geometric Freedom, Improvements to Ease of Use and Maintenance, and Expanded Versatility.
These products allow LulzBot users to focus on the form and function of their design, instead of focusing on how to make it 3D printable.
