The first LulzBot printer we're introducing is the TAZ 6 which is targeted at serious 3-D print users and well versed amateurs. The TAZ 6’s offers an automatic print bed leveling system that uses 4 disks placed at the corners of the print bed, which the self-cleaning nozzle will measure from, so there's no need to manually level the bed. Another premium feature is the automated extruder cleaning which done so by a small felt pad that removes any extra filament that got stuck on the extruder. The print volume on the TAZ 6 is an impressive 11.7" x 10.8" x 9.8" giving a total of 1,239 cubic inches of usable print volume. The extruder is also capable of heating to 572F or 300C so you can print high temperature materials such as nylons, PC and others easily. Lastly the TAZ 6 comes with Cura Software which is open-source and comes with three presets for the quality and print speed: Standard, High Speed and High Detail. Overall the TAZ 6 is among the top FDM printers on the market and is more reliable and easier to use than its predecessor.
The second LulzBot printer we’re introducing, is their Lulzbot Mini. Hence the name, the Mini weighs just 19lbs and has a print volume of 6inch x 6inch x 6.2inch. The LulzBot Mini is a RepRap style printer meaning it print most of its own parts and like other LulzBot printers uses open source hardware and open source CAD software.The overall design is fairly simple with a riveted matte black steel frame and a PEI film that covers the glass bed. The Mini does not have enclosed printing chamber but still has a great range of printing materials. Materials such as ABS, PLA, HIPS, PVA, Polyester, PETT, Polycarbonate, and Nylon. As previously mentioned the LulzBot uses Cura Software but is compatible with almost any other 3D printing software such as Slic3r and MatterControl.
