logo (1)Hackerspaces entered in the Fourth Annual Lulzbot Hackerspace Giveaway are all hoping to go home big this year, with the announcement that Aleph Objects, Inc. will be supporting a huge giveaway featuring a whopping 32 LulzBot 3D printers . Last year’s contest was exciting enough with a giveaway featuring 12 printers, but this year this contest is amped up exponentially, with winners being able to choose from either the LulzBot Mini or the LulzBot TAZ.

Aleph-Objects-LulzBot-Cluster-1Hackerspaces who entered last year are eligible to enter again. How do you know if you qualify? What defines a true ‘hackerspace?’ Well, for the purposes of this giveaway, a hackerspace is defined as a community space which is dedicated to individuals working on projects together. There are specifics attached to this, to include that:

  • The group owns a community-operated physical space.
  • The hackerspace maintains a website/wiki.
  • Offers a basic set of tools and equipment.
  • Believes in sharing resources and knowledge to build and make things.
  • Uses and contributes to free software and open source hardware projects and communities.

To enter the giveaway, you just need to fill out a form for your hackerspace. Click here to find out more about entering. Forms must be filled out by Sunday March 1, 2015 at 11:59 p.m. mountain standard time. Winning hackerspaces are notified by email, as well as having their names announced on the LulzBot blog and social media.

While they encourage schools, libraries, and organizations working under the STEAM agenda to stay on the look-out for further giveaways, they are not eligible for this one.

Those in the market to buy a new 3D printer or for those entered in the giveaway should find it of note that the LulzBot Mini is just recently PC Magazine’s ‘Editors’ Choice’ for a mid-range 3D printer. They have also just released the latest version of the TAZ with the TAZ 5, also critically acclaimed in the tech and 3D printing industry.

Both Aleph Objects and LulzBot have increased the number of 3D printers they are giving away this year in an effort to show their dedication and commitment to the hackerspace and making community. They emphasize as much as possible that they hope to encourage everyone else in the community to continue sharing information and helping everyone to continue learning, progressing, and improving on innovations as a whole, as well as following them on social media and sharing their information.

Are you part of a hackerspace, and if so, are you entering the giveaway? Have you used a LulzBot 3D printer? Tell us your thoughts in the Fourth Annual Lulzbot Hackerspace Giveaway forum over at 3DPB.com.
