Description: The TAZ 5 3D printer from LulzBot represents the latest evolution in high performance desktop 3D printing technology. This 3D printer provides you with a wide range of features that facilitate more consistent, higher quality prints than ever. The TAZ 5 features tetherless printing through an SD card with a versatile, multi-functional graphic LCD controller and boasts a spacious 11.7in x 10.8in x 9.8in print area with a controllable heat bed that can print large items, or many small items.

What can you print with? LulzBot users have many filaments options beyond common plastics like PLA, ABS, and HIPS. The TAZ 5 features the LulzBot Hexagon hot end, which can heat up to 300°C (572°F). Now, the TAZ is capable of printing in even more materials than ever! Exotic filament options like the rubber-like (NinjaFlex) materials can also be used with this 3D printer with the proper tool head.

All LulzBot products are Libre/Open Source Hardware, meaning you can adopt the latest and greatest technology being developed across the 3D printing market. From experimental filament materials and the modeling software of your choice, to new accessories like hot ends and print surfaces—experience the joy of user freedom! LulzBot’s Libre/Open philosophy empowers you to download/print upgrades and replacement parts for your 3D printer, and make whatever modifications you want!

Note: Printing NinjaFlex, and other flexible filaments requires an optional print head found here. Additionally, 3D printing with carbon fiber filaments is not recommended at this time because carbon fiber filaments can degrade both the nozzle and hot end of the LulzBot TAZ 5 Tool Head.

Customer Comments

  • 3D printed parts in a $2200 printer? Even my $1,300 flashforge had injection molded parts.

    • Nice thing is, if one of those parts breaks (I have a TAZ4 - only part I’ve had break was my own fault), you can just print up another one.

      There’s only a couple of 3d printed parts on the TAZ4 that I can think of that are truly printer-breaking - the two extruder drive gears, and the X-axis smooth rod/stepper holders. That x-axis part is solid as hell, you’re only going to break it if you drop your printer (and you have bigger problems if that happens). The gears… just print a couple extra first thing and you’re fine. When one of my extruder gears ‘broke’ (some of the teeth came off) it still worked quite well enough for me to print a replacement one.

  • Looks like Lulzbot has standardized on the Hexagon hot end.
