Our Growing Community

More communities are doing more projects, in more places, with more members, than ever before. As the hacker/maker/creator/fablab community is growing, so is the Open Hardware and Free Software business community—including us!

We recently moved into a new 17,000 square foot headquarters facility in Loveland, Colorado, which includes a cluster of 135 LulzBot 3D printers. We have an experienced team with decades of hardware experience, and an expanding global supply chain that allows us to manufacture and deliver printers, parts, and filaments in record time.

And Now, the Winners!

As we grow as a company, our advancing capabilities allow us to rapidly build more high performance LulzBot 3D printers than ever before.

There were so many qualified applicants for this year’s giveaway, we decided to up the ante in our contributions to the hacker/maker community by expanding our giveaway from eight printers to twelve! All the winners are listed below. If you see a winner in your community, you should drop by and say congratulations!

We will be in touch shortly to coordinate shipping your new LulzBot TAZ 3D printer to your space!
