Re: "Rumors" of Lulzbot Closing by End of October 2019

Check the last couple of posts - it's been purchased, so support should be available.

Re: "Rumors" of Lulzbot Closing by End of October 2019

Woohoo! Hopefully some of the folks will get re-hired - there's a lot of really good people there. I'm sure there's changes coming. Sounds like an emphasis on customer support, and a commitment to open products, which are cool. I'm sure there will be behind the scenes changes, e.g. if a OSS solution...

Wish there was a discord or slack instead of facebook....but at least there's something.

And sounds like maybe good news...fingers crossed!

Re: "Rumors" of Lulzbot Closing by End of October 2019

I've been tempted to grab a v3 dual (have a v2 that never really worked well), but he v3 had a rough launch with issues, clogging, and temp problems. Anyone aphorism has a recent one able to comment on how well it works?

Re: "Rumors" of Lulzbot Closing by End of October 2019

Hadn't thought about grabbing the forums (got everything else), but that's not a bad idea. Did you use rsync or wget on them?

And yeah, a torrent would be the best place, once we know for sure.

Fingers cross that no news is good news though, and that someone will pick up the assets.

Re: Long live LulzBot! A statement from a fellow RYF vendor (with plans to sell compatible parts)

No shameless plug there at all - thank you! Consumables are going to be a big challenge if Lulzbot liquidates, and wiper pads and glass/PEI sheets for the modular bed are right at the top of the list.

Re: "Rumors" of Lulzbot Closing by End of October 2019

Very sad to see this happen, both for the people hit (been there, it sucks), and for the customers. I've been concerned though, the rest of the market is moving down in price, and the latest Taz iteration went in the opposite direction - I'm sure that hurt sales. Taz was always a premium product, bu...

Today's News

First, to all those impacted by the cuts today, my sincere condolences. Being on either side (and I've had both) simply sucks. We appreciate all your help and creativity over the years, and wish you the best going forward. I do have one question though, and it seems related to this situation. Parts ...

Re: Cura 3.6 very slow

Related, is there anyway to stop the automatic slicing? I find that version 3 is really bad about hanging when you add multiple complex models. We really need a 'slice now' button - there's no reason to do it automatically. Not sure why the core cura team insists on burning cpu cycles unnecessarily,

Re: CURA unsigned on macOS?

I'm sure it's because lulzbot insists on only using foss software for everything, signing requires using Xcode, and there's terms in the license they won't agree to. I've been trying to get them to change the install instructions for years, as their method disables important security features in OS ...
