New Product Updates: July

We have several new products for the LulzBot TAZ 6, LulzBot Mini, TAZ 5, and TAZ 4! We are working diligently to bring you more components and parts to keep your 3D printer working reliably for years to come. If you are a hacker or modder and are building your own RepRap-style 3D printer we have you covered as well with even more hardware components, including our custom machined metal plates and Z-axis parts!

Hot End and Tool Head Parts

LulzBot TAZ 5 v2c Tool Head Harness

This replacement tool head harness makes installing a v2 tool head onto a TAZ 4 or 5 easy. The connector on this harness is not directly compatible with the TAZ 1-3. TAZ 4 users will also need one Internal Blower add-on for each control box extruder port.

 

 

 

30W Heater Cartridge

This heater cartridge is a direct replacement for the heater cartridge used in the all-metal LulzBot v2 Hot End that is used in the v2 tool head series. This heater cartridge does not have a plastic connector housing on the wiring, but is terminated with a compatible connector pin for easy replacement and installation.

 

 

 

100k Semitech GT-2 Thermistor

This thermistor is a direct replacement for the thermistor used in the all-metal LulzBot v2 Hot End that is used in the v2 tool head series. This thermistor does not have a plastic connector housing on the wiring, but is terminated with a compatible connector pin for easy replacement and installation.

 

 

 

5v/24v 40mm Pelonis fans

Keep your cool with these low flow 40mm fans. These fans are direct replacements for the fans used on the LulzBot TAZ 6 3D printer. Use two 24V fans to cool the extruded filament for crisp, clean 3D printed parts. Use one 5V fan to cool the heat sink on the all-metal LulzBot v2 Hot End.

 

 

Upgrades

Moons NEMA 17 Stepper Motor Damper

1 Damper is all that's required to reduce the sound level on the LulzBot Mini. This damper should be installed on the Y axis stepper motor and does not require any additional hardware. The existing stepper motor mounting screws will be used.

 

 

 

Maintenance

LulzBot TAZ 6, LulzBot Mini Wiper Replacement Kit

Unlike our existing wiper kit, this 5-pack is less expensive and does not contain the 3D printed plastic wiper mount.

 

 

 

 

 

Hackers and Modders

12mm igus® High Precision Bushings

These bushings are sized for our 12mm X-axis smooth rods. Three are used on the TAZ 6 X-axis. igus® bushings are used to provide whisper quiet movement, are self-lubricating, and require little-to-no maintenance.

 

 

 

 

Z-axis Lead Screw Nuts

These are direct replacements for the Z-axis nuts used on the LulzBot TAZ 5  and TAZ 6 3D printer.

 

 

 

 

 

Metal X Ends and Metal Y Ends

Machined out of aluminum and featuring an anodized, matte black finish, these metal plates are perfect for advanced users that are building a TAZ 4 or TAZ 5 3D printer.

 

 

 

 

 

Helical Flexible Shaft Coupling

Great 3D prints start with a reliable platform and a stable foundation. These Helical Flexible Shaft Couplers connect the Z-axis stepper motor shaft to the Z-axis lead screw. These aluminum couplers secure two 5 mm shafts using a total of four set screws.
