The TAZ 5 3D printer is a large size, high-performance 3D printer from Aleph Objects. If you are a seasoned 3D printer looking for a printer that is reliable, upgradable and produces impressive prints every time, the Taz 5 is for you. This 3D printer provides you with a range of features and filament options that will allow you to have consistent, higher quality prints although, it comes pretty bare bones; not featuring the auto-bed leveling upgrade of the Taz 6 that everyone has come to love.
The TAZ 5 features tetherless printing via the SD card slot on the control panel as well as the USB tethered printing option. The entire printer is independently controllable with the graphical LCD controller screen wheel too. It boasts a 298mm x 275mm x 250mm print area with a heated bed giving you the ability to print in a range of sizes!
What filaments can it print with? As a LulzBot user, you'll have many filaments options, going well beyond the common plastics like PLA, ABS, and HIPS. The TAZ 5 comes with the LulzBot Hexagon hot end, which is capable of extrusion temperatures up to 300°C (572°F)!. This isn’t to mention the capabilities you can add to your printer with a flexy, dual or flexy dually tool head (all of which are compatible with the Taz 5 design). These tool heads add exotic filament options like the rubber-like (Ninja Flex) materials to your printer arsenal and installation is a breeze with Lulzbot’s OHAI library.
All LulzBot products are built on an Open Source Hardware platform, this means that you can adopt the latest and greatest technology being developed across the 3D printing market for your Taz 5. These options include newer filament materials, the ability to use the modeling software of your choice, new accessories like hot ends and print surfaces for your printers—it's so great to have user freedom with your printer! LulzBot’s Libre/Open philosophy empowers you to download/print upgrades and replacement parts for your 3D printer, and design & create whatever modifications work for you!
Note: Printing NinjaFlex and other flexible filaments require an optional print head, you can find that tool head here. Also, 3D printing with carbon fiber filaments is not recommended at this time, due to carbon fiber filaments’ tendency degrade both the nozzle and hot end of the LulzBot TAZ 5 Tool Head, that isn't to say it's impossible! We're just letting you know you might be up for replacement hot ends if you decide to do it.

- Your First Print with a Lulzbot 3D Printer
Once you receive and unbox your Lulzbot machine you might be so eager to print things, you skip a few steps in the setup process and all of a sudden you are having all sorts of difficulties that you can’t understand. It happens, what you need i...
- Remote 3D Printing with OctoPi
Remote control of your 3D printer is a particularly appealing concept, especially if you've been forced into a USB tether in the past. Using your new 3D printer should be as simple as plugging it into a controller, uploading some G-Code and pressing ...
- How 3D Printing Works
3D Printing is one of the ways we can turn virtual 3-dimensional models into real world objects. It is an Additive manufacturing (AM) process, building models layer by layer. AM is the opposite of subtractive manufacturing which takes a block of mate...

The Maker Revolution celebrates the creation of new devices and the modification of existing ones - the transition from a consumer buying goods to eventually having a major part in their creation. The Maker Revolution places strong emphasis on free (...
- 3D Printing Cheat Sheet
Wouldn't it be great to have a single image, that encapsulated a tonne of handy 3D printing tips and information to hang on the wall behind your 3D Printer? Well, we agree so much so that we've gone ahead and created this infographic/cheat sheet hybr...
- Broken Door Trim Clips
I recently picked up a used BMW E46 and noticed the door panel trims were all hanging on by some duct tape. When I went to inspect, I noticed that all the clips had been broken and replaced with silicone rubber to try and hold it to the door. With some CAD and 3d Printing, I set out to replace them all and restore my door panels to their former glory....
- Meet 'Holman' the Ultimate Bluetooth Speaker
Who says you can't have it all? Good looks and a great sound! My name is 'Holman" and I'm a Bluetooth speaker in the form of mans best friend - a dog of course! Why is my name Holman? Well, that's the name of the manufacturer of the PVC pipe I used and the name grew on me as I completed the project! Whilst this might look like a complex project if you have access to the metric PVC pipe and a 3D printer I'm actually quite easy t...
- HUGE LED Pixel Panel
I’ve always been fascinated by LED screens and seeing beautiful colours mix and merge to create vibrant displays. I also love games, so what better way to combine the two than a giant LED pixel matrix which can play games, display audio levels, really anything you can think of. It uses a Raspberry Pi to controller strips of digital LEDs mounted inside a pixel grid with a diffuser mounted on top. It requires some basic wood...
- Time lapsing in OctoPrint (Properly!)
Now that we have decked out our Lulzbot Taz 6 3D Printer with a really nice looking acrylic enclosure, I'm just about ready to turn on some serious 3D printing work. But before I dive into that endless pool of fun, it's a good time to take 5 minutes and set up our Taz 6 and it's OctoPrint Server with a bed-mounted camera and light system. That way I can monitor my prints from the other side of the warehouse using OctoPrint, and m...
- The Hipster Coaster
We wanted to make a interactive display of the fun that can be had with DIY projects to take to Sydney Mini Maker Faire. We decided to do so by utilising the TinkerKit Braccio from Arduino.org, alongside some 3D Printing ingenuity, for an engaging display for all ages. Enter the Hipster Coaster in all its glory. All the parts were printed seperately on our family of Lulzbot 3D Printers, later stuck together using a mi...
