Unboxing the LulzBot Mini

The new LulzBot Mini 3D printer comes ready to print out of the box. Our unboxing video will let you know what to expect when yours arrives.

The LulzBot Mini arrives in a large white box covered with custom artwork. Their attention to detail with open-source is clear even before you open the box. The large Rocktopus wireframe graphic on the side of the box gives proper attribution to Kent Johnson along with the Creative Commons licensure information and attribution to the creators of the original octopus design.

Once the LulzBot Mini unboxing process begins, everything is very clear and straightforward. The first items removed from the box are a quickstart guide, packing & checklist, safety & warnings sheet, LulzBot sticker, EC declaration of conformity, QA record, sample coil of HIPS filament, and toolkit (more details below).

The printer is packed very securely with dense, heavy foam blocks. There are two large foam cubes, which make the LulzBot Mini tough to remove without holding the box down with your feet (or another set of hands). As you can see in the video, it is a bit challenging! There are smaller pieces of dense foam that sit on the linear rails to ensure that the X and Y axis do not move around during transit.

In the resealable toolkit bag is the following:

  • 2mm Allen Wrench
  • 5 Replacement Wiper Pads
  • Tweezers
  • Dental Pick
  • Flathead Bristle Brush
  • Part Removal Knife (clam knife)
  • USB Cable
  • Power Cable
  • USB Drive
  • Test Print

Another item included in the box is a very helpful (and attractive) diagram of the LulzBot Mini. This diagram includes a glossary of key 3D printing terms which will prove very helpful for any newbie 3D printers that are trying to get a hang of the terminology for different parts of the printer.

The quickstart guide is also very well done. I’m not new to 3D printing, but for someone just getting their feet wet the guide will do an excellent job of getting the user up and running, fast.

I’ll have a review up next week once I’ve had a chance to run the Mini through its paces but from what I can tell so far, this is a very solid, reliable, easy-to-use 3D printer.
