"Hackerspaces are passionately driving user innovation and creativity, especially within the 3D printing industry," said Jeff Moe, President of Aleph Objects, Inc. "Our goal is to get as many TAZ 3 printers into as many hackerspaces as possible. Our 3D printers are open, so users can continue to change, adapt and modify the technology to their individual needs."

Free software and Libre Hardware make the LulzBot TAZ the ideal hacker machine. It is the first hardware product and only 3D printer awarded the Free Software Foundation Respects Your Freedom (RYF) certification. Complete plans for printers, including the bill of materials, building plans, manual, firmware and software are publicly available on the website and under a copyright license that grants end users the legal right to learn from and modify the printer to meet individual needs. This reflects the vision of Hardware Freedom Day, "to empower all people to freely connect, create and share in a digital world that is participatory, transparent and sustainable."
