Open your mind to the world of multi-coloured/multi-property prints with the Lulzbot® TAZ Dual Extruder Tool Head v2! This accessory is an upgradeable tool head from Lulzbot, recommended for advanced users. It enables multi-coloured and multi-material 3D prints although it does require some calibration. Use either of the two hot ends to 3D print objects that wouldn’t normally be possible. You’ll be able to print with popular support materials, like HIPS or water-soluble PVA and in doing so print crazy & complex models that weren’t possible previously.

The new Lulzbot TAZ® Dual Extruder Tool Head v2 includes two of the popular Lulzbot® Hexagon Hot Ends. The hot end has an all-metal construction, raising the maximum extrusion temperature to 300°C thereby allowing you to print with a wider range of specialty 3D printing filaments.
An additional upgrade from the Dual-Extruder v1 is the aluminum extruder mounting plate for easier setup and a more reliable experience, print after print.
Using the second extruder for HIPS or PVA support material will make any print a breeze. After printing your object with HIPS support material, simply pull it away to reveal your part. For more complex parts, or for objects with hard to reach internally supported areas, use water-soluble PVA filament. Once 3D printed, soak the object and wash away the support material.
Multi-coloured prints are also an option with this tool head, the 2 extruders can be used to print 2 of the same filament (in different colors), it really opens the door on some awesome looking prints.

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...
- 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...
