The Lulzbot TAZ 6 has solidified its spot on the king-of-the-hill for large scale printers and is engineered to reliably print massive objects, quickly and accurately. The Lulzbot TAZ 6 is the latest generation 3D Printer from our friends at Aleph Objects. This printer has all the features you expect from a modern device, including modular tool head design, self-levelling and cleaning.
Enjoy a wide range of material choices such as ABS and PLA, along with more exotic variants including HIPS, INOVA and PET. We've put together a guide to help you through the swathe of filaments to choose from for your next project.
We've had plenty of feedback from educators and professional users alike who have been very impressed with the ease of use and opportunities this large-scale printer has enabled. The Lulzbot printer isn't locked into an ecosystem of filaments, Aleph Objects encourage freedom with materials and modifications.
One of the key things we love about Aleph Objects is their open source approach with everything. Replacement 3D printable bits, upgrades, the lot.
You might be entirely new to 3D printing, or a seasoned expert. Either way, you are welcome to dive into our tutorials and check out some 3D printing tips.

- Complete documentation including a detailed manual with information for setup, downloading and using software, and starting your first print. Also includes an in-depth manual on using Cura LulzBot Edition, the recommended software for controlling your 3D printer.
NB: There is a bit of hype around "carbon fibre" filaments. First of all, it's not the same material you might think it to be. Second, it can damage your printer nozzle, so go with a copolymer for incredible strength if needed. Something that only Hot Ends such as the Lulzbot Hexagon can achieve with temperatures of up to 300 degrees C.

- Cura 2: LulzBot Edition - An Overview for Beginners
Now that we are all on track with our Slicer software, having just installed Cura 2 and upgraded our printer firmware, let's work on turning some 3D Model files into G-Code for our 3D Printer to create. We're going to be using our LulzBot Mini to sli...

In November of 2017, our friends over at LulzBot released a major software update to their Slicing software, Cura. In this tutorial, we will look at what Cura is and does, the process of installing Cura 2 onto a PC already running Cura 21.xx, upgradi...
- Third Hand Webcam Mount for the LulzBot Taz 6
When making a webcam mount for your 3D Printer, there are physical limitations for where you can have the camera sitting safely throughout the whole print. A while back, we remixed a really nicely designed bed mount for the Raspi Camera so that it wo...

- 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...
- 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...
- 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...
- Concrete Lamp
Welcome to my project on how to make a very stylish lamp out of a potentially un-stylish material - concrete! To be honest, style (or rather beauty) is in the eye of the beholder and so I'll leave it up to you to decide if it fits in your surroundings or not. What do you think? All the necessary steps are here but if you don't like reading the just sit back, relax and watch the video instead. When I said to people at work that I...
- 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...
- 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...
