Get Your Hackerspace A 3D Printer

logo

LulzBot is yet again giving away a few of their very fancy and well-reviewed 3D printers away to a few hackerspaces.

This isn’t the first time LulzBot has given away a few of their printers; a year and a half ago, they gave away eight AO-100 printers and they also donated one to our ‘ol buddy [Caleb] for TheControllerProject, a forum to connect disabled gamers to people who have the means and ability to make custom gaming controllers.

The rules for this giveaway are simple: Be a hackerspace, and display, “creativity and contributions to the free software and open hardware community.” It’s as simple as that. If you’re a hackerspace without a 3D printer – which would be somewhat astounding at this point – here’s your chance to get one of the best 3D printers around.

The contest will be open starting March 1 and ends on March 14, with entry requiring a hackerspace fill out a form somewhere on the LulzBot servers.

    Controller Project looks like it has been abandoned – no updates in 4 months… forums link dead…

    Hackerspaces without a 3D printer isn’t somewhat astounding in developing countries. Even a simple model can cost more than 6 months of rent here (Brazil).
    Our hackerspace in Sao Paulo (Garoa HC) got one at this contest last year. Since we didn’t have to pay for the printer, we just paid the custom taxes, which are still expensive, but affordable.
