FDM 3D Printer

 


 

 

Engineers, designers, educators, and makers agree: The LulzBot TAZ 6 is the most reliable, easiest-to-use desktop 3D printer ever, featuring innovative self-leveling and self-cleaning, and a modular tool head design for flexible and multi-material upgrades. With proven 3D printing technology and one of the largest print volumes in its class, the LulzBot TAZ 6 is ready to work.

3D printing is more reliable than ever with the integrated automatic bed leveling system, all metal LulzBot v2 Hot End, and heated PEI print surface.  With the all metal hot end, you can take advantage of the cutting edge market for new materials. Perfect for both large and small objects, the heated PEI build surface keeps your 3D printed objects in place when hot and releases when cool. With Cura LulzBot Edition, you have hundreds of quickprint profiles built in for seamless 3D printing.

Fused deposition modeling (FDM) 3D printing utilizes a strand, or filament, of plastic that is heated to melting and pushed through a small orifice. This is known as extruding. The system has motors, belts, and pulleys to allow the extruder to move around in three dimensions which allows the melted plastic to be deposited wherever it is needed. Combining this ability with specialized software, the part is built one layer at a time by laying down melted plastic and allowing it to cool in a controlled manner to create a part.
