The open-source hardware of Lulzbot Mini comes packed with useful features and makes it easier for users to print with minimum effort. This is an FDM 3D printer, with affordable price tags, outshines most of the printers available today. Because it is highly advanced, the machine lets the user enjoy the freedom to explore and test. The 3D printer offers its users the high-quality prints coupled with easy operation; the 3D printer has been able to stay on the top list since release.

Printing with LulzBot Mini is an amazing experience. One does not have to worry about the first layer adhesion as the printer as it is pretty reliable in that front. The other things that come along are: the 0.05 mm layer height achievable allows for smoother surface finish. Also, the printer can produce finer details with ease. In addition, the corners are also well-formed when printed using Mini. All in all, the printer does a great job with minimum errors, not no errors at all.

Lulzbot Mini is compatible with many 3D designing applications. The company Adelph Objects, however, has bundled the machine with Cura LulzBot Edition. But users can also use OctoPrint, Printrun, BotQueue, Slic3r, and many others. Talking about the Cura LulzBot Edition, it can be termed as the upgraded version of Cura with a difference in terms of interface, slicing speed, etc. For home users and beginners, this 3D printer may look a bit out of reach. However, one can expect amazing results when compared to the other budget desktop 3D printers that are available for just a few hundred dollars.
