The hardware upgrade is coming first to the award-winning LulzBot Mini 2 and features a genuine E3D Hot End with a 0.25 millimeter nozzle and 360-degree part cooling.
The tool head ushers in a whole new realm of possibilities in FFF (Fused Filament Fabrication) print resolution capabilities, Aleph said.
“Aleph Objects probably [has] the most useful and interesting array of tool heads for their 3D printers, and E3D is excited to contribute its expertise to a tool head that really pushes the limits of the technology,” said Sanjay Mortimer, E3D Online Ltd. co-founder and director of R&D.
“There’s a lot more to come from this collaboration, and we feel like we’re just getting started.”
The Aerostruder v2 Micro Tool Head offers a high degree of accuracy for snap-fit parts, high print quality for aesthetic applications, and tight tolerances for engineering and prototyping.
Free and Open Source Cura LulzBot Edition software hosts a wide range of pre-configured material profiles for out-of-the-box, high-precision 3D printing.
“The Aerostruder v2 Micro Tool Head -- paired with the LulzBot Mini 2 3D Printer -- has changed my perception of what is possible with filament 3D printing. In terms of resolution and surface finish, the prints from this new tool head are very impressive,” said Adam Straight, Aleph Objects product specialist.
Adapter kits are slated for release in the coming weeks for the LulzBot TAZ 6, TAZ 5, and LulzBot Mini 1 3D Printer.
