I wish the person who took the time to translate parts of the Release notes actually did it on the wiki. There is no Spanish translation yet.

I could do it. But I don't know how... Should I ask for an account and edition rights?

From Reddit:
FWIW, we design our LulzBot printers using FreeCAD.
And there is a video showing FreeCAD:

It's been known for years that Lulzbot uses FreeCAD, back in 2012 they were looking for help in migrating Sketchup files of what would become the TAZ 1.0 3D printer to either OpenSCAD or FreeCAD, and I happened to stumble on their development page where the request was posted. I contributed some files and they went on from there.

They also gave a financial contribution for the development of the TechDraw workbench when ian.rees was working on it. (Their parent company Aleph Objects is listed in the Credits tab of the About dialog) They are really dedicated to open source!

Now we just need the press rounds! Time to convince Yorik to appear on The Lunduke Show! He is sponsored by LulzBot and is into 3D printing, I'm sure it'd be great.
