Amazing quality and reliability

After having had other brands of 3D printers in my STEM class in Middle and High School, I was so pleased by the reliability and quality of the Luzbot Taz 5. We  can depend on this printer to perform every time with virtually zero mis-feeds. The quality is excellent!  Customer Service has been exemplary. They are available and ready to answer any questions I have. I believe this is the best value for 3D printing and would recommend it to anyone.

Taz 4 Review

I love the simplicity of this unit and how easy it was for me to learn on. This was actually the first printer that I learned on and it made 3D  printing exciting and fun. Lulzbot has a great online community for support and you can learn a great deal from them as well. The thing I hate the most is the manual bed leveling, especially since I purchased a Lulzbot Mini for personal use, the auto bed leveling spoiled me.

Taz 4 - a workhorse of a 3D printer

I use a Taz 4 at a school where I teach computer science. It's been sitting mostly dormant so I've revived it this year when I joined the staff, and have tweaked it back to life. My biggest complaint is that the glass bed had pretty bad adhesion issues, but a $20 PEI sheet solved that. Lulzbot support has been amazing. Printing off an SD card works okay, but not very well in a collaborative way, so we installed an OctoPrint system and that's been working really well for us.

Now that everything is dialed in, we get great prints almost every time -- you still have to pay attention to what you're printing, but we don't print at anywhere close to the 200mm/sec speed that it claims to have.

Has been an excellent hobbiest printer

This printer was my first 3D printer. I wanted a large print volume, and something that was built well, and adaptable. I got all three things.  There is definitely a learning curve, since the Taz4 was pre-self leveling bed days, but the real beauty behind any rep-rap based printer is that, if it don't have it now, you can make it.  At this point I've upgraded the printer to be quite the machine, and at the cost of materials.  If you are a tech-oriented person that likes to mod things and doesn't mind tinkering to get the most out of your tools, the Taz is for you. If you want a plug-n-play, works, but doensn't do anything too special, maybe not a Taz... Pros:  Customer service is very friendly and helpful.  Support for the hardware is very good. Has teamed up with Cura to make some pretty slick software.  Fully open-sourced and moddable.  You can effectively make a taz 6 by printing the new parts and buying a couple of extras.

Cons: there is still a learning curve.  It is obnoxiously large, especially when you build a temp-controlled case for it. The click wheel menu and display is a bit cumbersome and dated.
