TAZ 6 review

Rating : 4.4/5
The LulzBot TAZ 6 is a desktop 3D printer made by LulzBot, a US-based manufacturer. The TAZ 6 will slowly replace the TAZ 5 machines which has previously won four awards.

The LulzBot TAZ 6 is a solid mid-range 3D printer capable of printing large 3D models thanks to its large build volume.

The LulzBot TAZ 6 offers a better printing resolution, within a slightly smaller build volume compared to its predecessor, and won 3D Hubs Best Of Work Horse 2017, Make:'s Runner up for outstanding open source 2017 and MatterHackers' Best Seller award. 

LulzBot TAZ 6 features

  • Open frame: so it's easy to monitor and maintain.

  • Hotend extruder and heated PEI print bed: for 3D printing a large variety of materials including ABS, PLA, HIPS, PVA, wood, bronze, copper, polyester, nylon, conductive and more with relative ease.

  • Software: the TAZ 6 is delivered with the Cura LulzBot Edition slicing software.

  • Automatic bed leveling: no need for manual calibration.

  • Automatic self-cleaning: to avoid messy 3D prints.
