Share this Article

kittaz3Just a few months ago, Aleph Objects Inc., the makers of the Lulzbot line of 3D printers, released their latest and greatest 3D Printer yet, the TAZ 4. The TAZ 4, which is available for $2,194.95, is a machine well worth its price tag. However, if you just can’t afford spending over $2,000 for a 3D printer, Aleph Objects now has another option for you.

Today they have released the LulzBot KITTAZ 3D Printer Kit. Priced at only $1,595, it features the identical specifications as that of the TAZ 4. The only catch is, you need to put it together yourself.

“The LulzBot KITTAZ is now available for purchase on our store at LulzBot.com,” wrote a representative from Aleph Objects. “The LulzBot KITTAZ 3D printer is an assembly required kit 3D printer built on the proven platform of the best-selling, fully assembled LulzBot TAZ. KITTAZ is an ideal tool for educators, hackers, and anyone that likes to make things.”

While the idea of having to assemble a 3D printer may seem a bit too challenging for you, Aleph Objects has taken many steps to make the process as simple and easy as possible. The KITTAZ kit includes very clear labeling and packaging, as well as wires that have already been crimped and harnessed. There is no doubt that the assembly process will take some time, and provide at least a slight challenge, but Aleph Objects includes very easy to understand instructions.

kittaz2What makes the KITTAZ so special, other than the quality hardware and ease of use, is the open source hardware that it is built upon. It allows users to continuously upgrade their machines, to keep up with the latest advances that we will continue to see within the 3D printing industry.

Like mentioned above, the specifications of the KITTAZ appear to be identical to those of the TAZ 4 3D printer, as you can see below:

  • Print Area: 298mm x 275mm x 250mm (11.7in x 10.8in x 9.8in)
  • Print Volume: 20,500cm3 (1238 in3) of usable space
  • Print Surface: Heated Borosilicate glass bed covered with PET film
  • Top Print Speed: 200mm/sec (7.9in/sec)
  • Print Tolerance: 0.1mm (0.0039in) in X and Y axes. Z axis is dependent on layer thickness
  • Layer Thickness: 0.075mm to 0.35mm (0.003in – 0.0138in)
  • Supported Materials: ABS, PLA, HIPS, PVA, and wood filaments
  • Usable Filament Sizes: standard 3mm (0.1in)
  • Physical Dimensions
  • Overall Dimensions: 680mm x 520mm x 515mm (26.8in x 20.5in x 20.3in)
  • Weight: 11kg (24.25lbs)
  • Electrical
  • Power Requirements: 100 – 240 VAC
  • Temperature: Max operating temperature (Extruder), 240C (464F)
  • Temperature: Max operating temperature (Heated Bed), 120C (248F)

The assembly of the KITTAZ 3D printer requires that you have the following tools on hand:

  • Regular Screw Driver
  • Phillips Screw Driver
  • Ruler
  • Side Cutters
  • Pliers
  • 1.27, 1.5, 2.5, 3, & 4 mm Hex Drivers
  • 5.5 mm Socket/Rachet/wrench
  • 13mm Wrench
  • 3/16″ Socket

Without a doubt, LulzBot 3D Printers are some of the highest quality machines on the market. They also provide some of the better customer service in the industry, so there is no reason that you should expect to experience any major issues when assembling the KITTAZ.
