Serious 3D printers will love the speed and flexibility of the LulzBot Mini 2.
  • - 4.4
The LulzBot Mini 2 is a more than worthy successor to the original Mini. It’s a fast, flexible printer that can produce high-quality prints in both the standard ABS and PLA filaments, as well as work with a wider range of materials than most printers. That speed and flexibility comes at a cost, though. At $1,500 originally, the Mini 2 costs substantially more than lower-end printers like the da Vinci Nano and midrange models like the Dremel DigiLab. But if you want faster prints made of a wide variety of materials, the extra cash it costs you for the LulzBot Mini 2 is more than worth it.

Portable, professional quality
  • - 4.5
If you are looking for a printer that you can lift out of the box, plug in, and print amazing models, the LulzBot is for you. If you intend to buy only one printer and have it sit on your desk, this is a perfect choice. I am now fully on board with the idea of spending $1,500 on a printer, especially if it produces such good prints with almost no effort.

This machine is a true workhorse in every sense of the word. It’s reliable, easy to use and will continue printing from sunrise to sundown without any issue. We were especially impressed by its ability to handle difficult-to-print materials like NinjaFlex, wood filament and ABS. We highly recommend the LulzBot Mini 2 for prosumers, designers, engineers and small businesses that require a printer that is dependable, consistent and able to pump out high quality objects quickly.
