Aleph Objects, a provider of 3D printers and filaments, is expanding its portfolio of offerings. In 2015, the company triple its revenue and grew to 100 total employees.
As part of this growth, the company will be expanding its line of multi-material tool heads for its LulzBot TAZ 3D printers. The TAZ Dual Extruder Tool Head v2 is now available; the FlexyDually Tool Head v2 will be available this quarter. These professional-grade tool heads use open (non-proprietary) 3mm filament; heat up to 300ºC (572ºF); and print dozens of materials.
The company’s latest Cura LulzBot Edition software update boasts new features like pause during printing (for mid-print filament swaps) and tested print profiles for six new materials.
AlphaBots is also collaborating with other industry companies at this year’s Consumer Electronics Show (CES):
- colorFabb rolling out nGen, an easy-to-print, next-generation material made with Eastman Amphora AM 3300, available soon on LulzBot.com.
- Proto-pasta bringing its engineering-grade PLA (polylactic acid) to LulzBot.com.
- Chroma Strand Labs debuting INOVA-1800, a co-polyester filament made with Eastman Amphora AM 1800, available soon on LulzBot.com.
- Red Hat, Inc. doing live demos of Fedora, the company’s Free/Open Source desktop GNU/Linux software distribution, with Cura LulzBot Edition.
“In 2015, we validated for the public the Free Software, Libre Innovation, and Open Source Hardware business model,” said Harris Kenny, vice president of Marketing, Aleph Objects. “Our announcements at CES 2016 show that Aleph Objects’ collaborative approach respects user freedom, creates better products, and fuels rapid growth.”
