The AO-100 is a MendelMax variant printer that has been slimmed down for a smaller foot print that matches the print size of the Prusa Mendel.

With an aluminum extrusion frame the AO-100 is an extremely sturdy printer capable of printing quality parts at high speeds. The design is made to be used with Igus pillow block bushings that allow for precise movement with a high performace bushing. The reliable MK1 PCB heat bed is used to heat the borosilicate glass print surface. Although other electronics can be used, the included electronics mount is for the tested and true RAMPS 1.4/Arduino RepRap electronics.

All of the source files including CAD files, print files, BOM, and manual are available at download.lulzbot.com/AO-100.

The AO-100 is also available, completely assembled and calibrated, at LulzBot.com.

The AO-100_print_parts.tar.gz files includes all of the needed print files. In AO-100_BOM.ods you can find the required part count including all of the needed hardware.

We have made an extensive manual for the AO-100 3D printer. Although this manual is specifically for the AO-100 it is also informative on general setup for a first time 3D printer user.

are these files downloadable in a different format? I would like STL format. Or, perhaps you can indicate how I can convert them to STL? Thanks!

I just want to say thank you for share the information and tell you that your printer is amazing!

I read the user manual, but couldn't find the building / printing size?

You can find the product specs on the product page here: http://www.lulzbot.com/en/3d-printer/153-ao-100.htmlhttp://www.lulzbot.com/en/3d-p.... However, thanks for the feedback. We'll add a Products Specifications in the manual and upload a revision.

Your manual is well done, also the tips you give!
