LulzBot TAZ 5 review

The LulzBot TAZ 5 is a desktop 3D printer made by LulzBot, a US-based manufacturer.

This 3D printer has been replaced with its newest version, the LulzBot TAZ 6.

The LulzBot TAZ 5 is a solid mid-range 3D printer capable of printing large models. With its open frame this printer is easy to monitor and maintain, but also a bit noisy. This 3D printer includes some 3D printed parts. The LulzBot TAZ 5 is capable of 3D printing a large variety of materials – including ABS, PLA, HIPS, PVA, wood, bronze, copper, polyester, nylon, conductive and more – with relative ease.

On the LulzBot TAZ 5 the glass build plate is cemented to the bed heater, making it difficult to remove and to replace if it breaks.

The LulzBot TAZ 5 is certainly not a plug and print machine. Technical knowledge is recommended to take advantage of its full potential and to identify and cope with occasional issues as they arise.

Aleph Objects, Inc. company, owner of LulzBot brand, has a firm commitment to Libre Innovation (Free Software & Open Source Hardware). This 3D printing company publishes their hardware designs and software packages under the GNU General Public License (GPLv3) and/or the Creative Commons CC-by-SA 4.0.

This 3D printer has been selected as one of the best “Enthusiast” option in the 3D Hubs 2015 report.
