Lulzbot 3D Printers Giveaway


Would recommend testing the power supply without it being connected up to the printer.

Our one (Maidstone) made a rather loud noise when switched on, we obviously won’t know if the printer is still ok until we have a suitable PSU.


I’m assuming the PSU voltage selector was correctly set to 240V?


Our one certainly was, double checked it was set correctly.


I can certifiably confirm with power supplies, unrelated to this giveaway, that a person can definitely tell when they’ve accidentally set the PSU voltage selector to 110v as it can make an amazing bang and white/blue flash as the fuse decides to get very excited and explodes. In case anyone wasn’t certain whether this was the situation with their power supply, this is typically the behavior that happens.


The printer we received works but is producing poor quality prints - it appears to have been treated badly by the courier unfortunately, so we’re in the process of trying to realign everything. We’re also having great difficulty getting prints to stick to the bed, though we’re starting to suspect that’s to do with calibration of the temperature sensors.

Be careful also as the power switch on the front left of the printer is at 240V and on ours at least has exposed contacts. We’ve bypassed this switch on ours.

Overall though, we’re starting to get some working prints out of ours, so thank you again!


Good news. We got in touch with Lulzbot and they sent us a replacement PSU pretty quickly without any hassle. :slight_smile:
