I think it's the best there is - 80% of it is printed by itself!

Since day one 3 months ago I've been using the Tax 6 every day and it never misses a beat - I use it with S3d not Cura which is just preference - works just as well with Cura but you don't have as many choices in terms of customizing settings and materials.  Going from complicated design to reality in minutes is just awesome from an engineer's prospective.  It's all open source too - the company publishes all the printed part designs and other manufactured parts as well as software and firmware... so you could build one yourself if you wanted to!  IMO it's worth the extra cost to own one.

Perfect for a Newbie

My wife got me the TAZ 6 with a Matter Control pad for Christmas and it took a ton of self control not to assemble it before I got it where it was going to stay. My daughter (an engineer) and I have had a ball ever since. I'm also an engineer and, at one point in college, programmed digital proportional lathes and mills (many years ago) so the concepts aren't foreign to me. For it to be really useful I need to gain some knowledge and experience generating files myself. I left the 'community' item blank because I haven't really been able to take advantage yet. The software rating isn't related to the TAZ 6 or Cura software but rather the Matter  Control and my struggle to understand the interface and why it doesn't work sometimes without explanation, I'm sure I'll figure it out and be very happy with it. No similar problems relative to Cura. Haven't tried S3d but will take the leap at some point.

LulzBot 6 Taz

This printer was very easy to set up and print with. Would recommend this printer for anyone new to 3D printing.

My GoTo Printer

This printer rocks ABS with the PEI sheet. It works almost every time. The quality of the print is does not match my Ultimaker, but it prints quick and well. I'm a big fan!

I absolutely love this printer!

This is my first 3D printer, I've been looking into them for a couple of years. I absolutely love this printer! It is awesome. It is very easy to user and the print quality is very good. I can finally make my ideas a reality!

Can't Say It's Worth the High Price

Was really excited when I got this printer earlier this year.  Have had a few issues with it and Aleph Objects have been very terse in their responses to my support requests, and very reluctant to provide a remedy for things that were clearly their responsibility under warranty.  Take a look at the company's employee reviews on Glassdoor and you might get some insight into why their customer service level is declining.  Whatever the performance and quality of the printer, I'm now wishing I had not supported this company by buying their stuff.  

The print quality and build quality are good, but for the price they charge for this thing, they should be between great and perfect.  If the printer were sold for about 1/2 what it goes for, I might have rated the value a bit higher.  Couldn't really recommend this as a good bang for your 3D-printing buck.

I would also recommend searching for 3mm filament options and compare the availability with that of 1.75mm filament offerings before choosing a Lulzbot printer.  If you like having lots of options, the Taz 6's use of 3mm filament may not be ideal.

Taz 6, Great printer for the begineer and experienced

I've tried other cheaper printers, and even though they can print good quality, they don't compare to a professional built printer.  The Taz 6 comes almost completely together. Software is designed for the printer and you can be up and running within a few minutes. You do have to adjust the axis occasionally, but that is pretty much it. I have my printer plugged directly into my computer so i can control it with the Cura software, but you can use it as a standalone with the sim card. If you are looking for a 3D printer and can afford a LutzBot, then I would spend the extra money for a printer that will get you up and running in no time and has great scustomer support.

Lulzbot TAZ 6 is a great 3d printer.

Using now for 3 months.  No problems, and great success.  Have been moving from using public STL files for building puzzles, whistles, game box fillers, figit spinner, and many more things for my boy scouts.  Very happy with setup, printing success, and lots of fun.  Would suggest also the Lulzbot Mini printer.
