The LulzBot TAZ 6 boasts multiple tool head upgrade options such as the Flexystruder for reliable printing of flexible filaments and the Dual Extruder and FlexyDually tool heads, for two-color or multi-material 3D printing.

All LulzBot products use Free Software and are Open Source Hardware. This means your LulzBot TAZ uses proven technology developed collaboratively. It also means you are free to adopt the latest and greatest technology being developed across the 3D printing industry, from new software programs to experimental materials. The LulzBot TAZ 6 utilizes an open filament format. This means you have the freedom to choose from dozens of leading and new materials, with over 300 quickprint profiles in Cura LulzBot Edition out-of-the-box. You can learn how your robot works, make modifications, and share with the community.
The LulzBot TAZ 6 has a build volume nearly the size of a basketball so you can make huge 3D prints, or 3D print many objects in a single print run, right on your desktop. Like the generations before it, the TAZ 6 boasts a spacious 280mm x 280mm x 250mm (11 in x 11 in x 9.8in) print area with a heated print surface. Invest in a 3D printer that can grow with your business, school, or workshop.
The LulzBot TAZ does not ship with filament, so make sure to order some with your purchase. We recommend Village Plastics PLA for beginners! Other advanced materials include heavy duty options like nylon, PETG, and HIPS, or aesthetic varieties of wood- and stone-like materials. Consider upgrading to an Aerostruder to try flexible filaments like NinjaFlex, Cheetah, and Armadillo. With so many options available, the choice is yours!
With the TAZ 6 you are just a plug-and-play away from using a dual extruder mount, flexible-filament-optimized mount, or dual-extruder-flexible-filament-optimized mount to print two different colors—or two different materials—at once! Separate purchase of a Dual Extruder or FlexyDually Tool Head is required.
The LulzBot Hexagon all metal hot end heats up to 300°C (572°F) and the bed heats up to 120°C (248°F). And with its open filament system your LulzBot TAZ has nearly unlimited potential for new materials.
Your LulzBot TAZ 6 features tetherless printing through an SD card with a multi-functional graphic LCD controller.
A LulzBot 3D printer was the first hardware product, and remains the only 3D printer brand, to receive the Free Software Foundation's Respect Your Freedom certification and meet the Open Source Hardware definition.
