At Aleph Objects, Inc., makers of LulzBot 3D printers, we are dedicated to the promotion and advancement of the Open Source Hardware community. We donated a LulzBot AO-100 to hackerspace.gr, in Athens, Greece as part of our 2013 Hackerspace Giveaway. The members of the SatNOGS project frequent hackerspace.gr, and used the LulzBot AO-100 to make parts for their project. SatNOGS stands for Satellite Networked Open Ground Station, and the SatNOGS project aims to create a complete platform of an Open Source Networked Ground Station. When SatNogs wanted to upgrade to a LulzBot TAZ 4, we gladly donated one for their project.
The SatNOGS team has already printed parts for the ground station they've sent to Brussels for FOSDEM, one of the most important Free and Open Source software meetings in Europe. We can't wait to see what they print next! Read the entire blog post on the SatNOGS website.
