LulzBot KITTAZ 3D Printer Kit #3DPrinting #3DThursday

…Our community is full of makers– people who love to take projects into their own hands. We have been thrilled to see what you’ve all made with your LulzBot 3D printers, and hope that you will continue to share your 3D printed parts and creations with us. We know that building and creating is an important part of the 3D printing process.
That’s why we’re proud to announce the KITTAZ- a kit version of our TAZ 4 3D printer. The KITTAZ features a spacious 11.7in x 10.8in x 9.8in print area with a controllable heated bed, a Buddaschozzle 2.0, and the same high-quality aluminum frame as our TAZ 4.….

We are angry, frustrated, and in pain because of the violence and murder of Black people by the police because of racism. We are in the fight AGAINST RACISM. George Floyd was murdered, his life stolen. The Adafruit teams have specific actions we’ve done, are doing, and will do together as a company and culture. We are asking the Adafruit community to get involved and share what you are doing. The Adafruit teams will not settle for a hash tag, a Tweet, or an icon change. We will work on real change, and that requires real action and real work together. That is what we will do each day, each month, each year – we will hold ourselves accountable and publish our collective efforts, partnerships, activism, donations, openly and publicly. Our blog and social media platforms will be utilized in actionable ways. Join us and the anti-racist efforts working to end police brutality, reform the criminal justice system, and dismantle the many other forms of systemic racism at work in this country, read more @ adafruit.com/blacklivesmatter
