Colorado-based manufacturer of LulzBot 3D printers, Aleph Objects, has 3D printed the one millionth part used in the production of their LulzBot desktop 3D printer line.
Each LulzBot 3D printer contains over 30 printed parts that are produced with the company’s cluster of 140 LulzBot 3D printers operating over 100 hours per week. It took Aleph Object over two and a half years to 3D print the first 500,000 parts and now they are producing 500,000 parts a year. In order to achieve this increase in efficiency the company upgraded and added more machines, expanded operating hours and adopted new technologies to make operating and monitoring their machines more efficient.
Aleph Objects, Inc. Vice President of Marketing Harris Kenny said: “LulzBot desktop 3D printers are workhorse machines that we, and our customers in over 85 countries around the world, rely on every day. We are proud to see the growing number of universities, laboratories, facilities, and businesses investing in clusters of LulzBot 3D printers to scale up educating, training, prototyping, and manufacturing.”
The one millionth part is on display at their headquarters and can be downloaded as STL or BLEND format file.
