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.
