My Lulzboth Taz 3.1 Experience.


Why I bought my TAZ 3.1 3D Printer different review.

Yes, it has a big print area.
Has a very active Community of users.
Has very good support and sales departments.
But it is just not standing still with updates to the TAZ. But developing new
hot ends for filaments. 3D scanner development.

And wants to be one of the top 10 3D printers in the world.
Large choice of filaments to choose from.

You can buy parts for your TAZ too, small or larger nozzels.

I am happy with my TAZ, and would purchase another, if I need another one.

To cut down on print times, and faster slicing, I use Simplify3D for software

with my TAZ. Note can be used Makerbot.

I have been only doing 3D prints for the past 8 days, took one day off. I really should be doing TAXES.

Test prints with hair spray vs juice (Actone and ABS mixed) on head glass bed. I only use ABS 3mm filament.

More 3d prints, made a lego part for son. It was a challenge for it was a ladder for his ship, he made the stl in cad program, and I did the printing. Took 4 tries to get it right. Settings changes in software to print and finally add raft and print perfect.
