PROS

  • The overall construction is solid and high-quality.
  • This 3D printer can print with a wide variety of materials.
  • It ships with easy-to-use Cura software.

The Lulzbot Mini is the smaller, less-expensive printer in LulzBot's lineup. Although 3D printers still aren't a mainstream consumer product, LulzBot advertises this printer as more suited to beginner and home use than the company's larger, more expensive printer. LulzBot's hexagon hot end is all metal, which allows it to reach high temperatures and print with a large number of materials, including nylon and polycarbonate. This printer also includes a customized version of the easy-to-use Cura software.

Prints from the LulzBot Mini had clean, smooth sides and a great level of detail. We did find that it sometimes left thin filaments of printing material hanging off the edges of some prints, but these were easy to remove.
