Unlimit Your 3D Printing Capabilities With The Open Filament System
The Lulzbot TAZ Workhorse proudly supports open filament utilization, allowing you to purchase and use any filament that is compatible with the printer’s capabilities.
- 2.85mm only with the included toolhead,
- Must have a printing temperature at or below 300°C.
- Must require a bed temperature at or below 110°C.
Trust the Expertly Calibrated Material Profiles
Lulzbot developers test and iterate various 3D printing materials to find the best 3D printer settings for the most popular materials.
- Find the material profile that’s tried and true for the Lulzbot team
- Use the most similar material as a basis for your own materials.
Perfect First Layers Every Time With Automatic Bed Calibration
Before every 3D print the Lulzbot TAZ Workhorse will wipe the nozzle and probe four contact points to find the relative plane that defines the print bed.
- Ensures that every 3D print has a perfectly consistent first layer.
- Z-Offset adjustment through the LCD allows you to fine-tune the first layer for the ideal distance.
Eliminate Z Wobble By Using A Belted Z Drive
A lead screw driven Z-axis can introduce artifacts into your 3D prints, but a belt driven Z-axis can move faster and more consistently.
- Zero chance of Z-Wobble, a common source of troubleshooting.
- Fast Z movement allows for quick Z-hop travels, avoiding the possibility of knocking over printed parts.
