Introducing the TAZ Extruder Fan Add-on Kit

Do you want to more easily print intricate parts with PLA, LayBrick, or Laywoo-3d (LayWood) filaments? What about improving your bridging with ABS filament? If you said yes to either of these questions, then the TAZ Extruder Fan Add-on Kit is your answer!

We are thrilled to announce the launch of this new product to the LulzBot community. Like all LulzBot products, the TAZ Extruder Fan Add-on Kit is fully Open Source/Libre Hardware. Installation instructions, a Slic3r configuration, and the source are all available right on the product listing page. So how does it work?

The TAZ Extruder Fan works by actively directing cooling air at the tip of the hot end while filament is extruded. This cooling is particularly valuable when printing overhangs, during bridging, and when printing small parts or thin walls. The TAZ Extruder Fan can also help during bridging with ABS filament.

With the Extruder Fan Add-on Kit you will get crisper corners, cleaner towers, and finer definition on intricate designs. So what are you waiting for? Click here to purchase yours in the LulzBot online store today!
