LulzBot TAZ 6 review

The LulzBot TAZ 6 is a desktop 3D printer made by LulzBot, a US-based manufacturer. The TAZ 6 has replaced the TAZ 5 which previously won four awards.

The LulzBot TAZ 6 is a solid mid-range 3D printer capable of printing large objects thanks to its large build volume. This desktop 3D printer offers a nice 3D printing resolution.
