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.

Lulzbot TAZ 6

I like the TAZ 6.  The prints come out cleanly and consistently.  I am still experimenting with the support structure. I love the open source that allows me to change things although I haven't done a lot with changes yet.  It seems to be very adaptable for my needs.  There was an issue with the power supply when I first received it and the service department was great to work with.  They had me try several things, but when nothing worked, they had me ship it back at their expense and they took care of the problem.  And they also replaced the print bed when it got cracked in the shipping.  I had some problems printing ABS as far as layer adhesion and shrinkage, but that seems to be a common issue with these kinds of printers.  I tried different temperature settings with out much success.  On the other hand I have had no problems using PLA filament, except for one spool of brown that would not feed correctly.  It was a filament issue rather than a printer issue.    The self adjusting, heated bed is wonderful in getting prints started.

Taz 6 With NEW Dual Head Version 3

I have had this printer for a little over a year and have been happy with it during that time.  Although Changing between two different dual Extruder heads and a single head depending on the job,  and recalibrating in between were not allway fun.  The new dual head version three has solved all that in one fell swoop.  It has printed everything I've thrown at it so far.  I've run ABS, PLA, PETG, Bronzefill, Copperfill, PVA, HIPS, Bridge, BluPrint, 645. And Polydissolve S1  and all of them have functioned well. There is no longer any need of changing any heads and all of them are now listed on Ebay.  I can now say that i feel good in recommending this printer to anyone.  If you are going to be printing a lot of ABS the only thing I would say is to get or build an enclosure.  These open frame printers dont hold enough heat to print ABS trouble free without one.  They now sell a tent one at lulzbot that works great.

Lulzbot TAZ 6

From day one I was able to print things successfully that I was unable to print on other printers I have had/tried. The dual extruder tool head is a snap to install.  Downloading and installing the profile took only 10 min.

The Lulzbot version of Cura produces very usable Gcode making printing that much easier.

I highly recommend this printer!

Wire brush a must, but great printer

the self leveling can be frustrating after you’ve done a bunch of prints, so once the printhead is at temp, get a bronze wire brush and scrub the heck out of the nozzle to clean all the junk off it. The self leveling uses an electrical contact at the four corners of the build plate and calculates the z offset so that it prints level.
