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. 

You might be entirely new to 3D printing, or a seasoned expert. Either way, you are welcome to dive in to our tutorials and checkout some 3D printing tips.

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.

  • 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...
  • 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....
  • 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...

    Great out-of-the-box experience. Clear instructions and no problems getting it up and running for someone who has never used a 3D printer before. Only issue so far was creating a first layer less than 0.3 mm. In the end I solved that by swapping the bed auto-levelling washers front to back. Overall the Taz 6 seems very versatile and quite accurate. Highly recommended.

    Blown away by the ease of use of this printer, within 30 minutes from unboxing I was printing my first pet Rocktopus :-) (Posted on 10/07/2017)

    Amazing printer, prints straight out of the box and better with only a few tweaks. And although it's designed for 3mm filament I've had no issues running 1.75 by changing filament size in cura. (Posted on 8/02/2017)

    A fantastic printer that is easy to start printing with, yet perfect for more complex prints. With fantastic support through the online community, I am happy to recommend to anyone starting out or to those with experience. (Posted on 5/12/2016)

    Great 3D printer.

    This 3D printer will be very easy to setup and get working for the novice and yes the youtube video's showing the setup are true.

    Core Electronics was a very good supplier and Graham and his team was good to talk to very helpful.

    The only down size on this 3D printer is that it uses 3mm filament.

    Regards

    Amazing device, instructions were clear on how to set it up. I expected would take a couple of tries with adjustments before getting a decent print, but I was wrong - first one came out perfectly. The auto-levelling feature works very well. Very easy to use and produces high-quality prints. (Posted on 14/07/2016)
