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. They have an open source approach with everything. Replacement 3D printable bits, upgrades, the lot.
One of the key things we love about Aleph Objects is their open source approach with everything. Replacement 3D printable bits, upgrades, the lot.

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.

- Remote 3D Printing with OctoPi
Remote control of 3D printers is a particularly appealing concept. We believe using your new 3D printer should be as simple as plugging it into your PC, uploading some G-Code and pressing 'Print'. However, having a laptop or desktop PC cluttering up ...
- 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...
- Geting Started with CAD for 3D Printing
If you've picked yourself up a 3D printer, you've no doubt printed yourself a heap of models from Thingiverse by now. It's great fun and the best way to learn how to control the options you have available through Cura; scaling, rotating and tweakin...
- 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...
