Lulzbot launches TAZ 3D printer, touted as largest build volume in hobby market 3D printers

The Lulzbot TAZ has arrived, and spots the largest build volume of all hobbiest 3D printers under $5000

| Posted: May 16, 2013 5:31 pm

This week, Lulzbot launched its latest 3D printer, the TAZ 3D. The truly 100 percent open source design is capable of printing objects with a volume up to 11.7" x 10.8" x 9.8" and can print in ABS, PLA, Nylon, Laywood, and poly-carbonate plastics.

The TAZ takes up a footprint of 26.8" x 20.5" x 20.3" and runs off of normal mains power. A simple USB connection to a PC or Mac is all that is needed to control the printer which uses open source control software. Unlike other 3D printers, the TAZ comes pre-calibrated which saves hours of time in setup and tweaking.

Capable of resolutions of 75-300 microns, the TAZ can print at speeds up to 200mm per second while the Budasch nozzle hot end provides reliable and consistent performance. In the interest of full disclosure, I own Lulzbot's first 3D printer, the AO-100, and could not be happier with it. We have reached out to Lulzbot and hopefully we can provide you with a hands on review in the coming months. The TAZ is on sale now and retails for $2,195
