Build Volume


The build volume for the LulzBot Taz 6 is 280 mm x 280 mm x 250 mm 

(11.02 in x 11.02 in x 9.8 in)

We recommend avoiding prints that use the entire surface of the printer's build platform. 

 

Slicer Software


The LulzBot Taz 6 printers are accessible in the  3DPrinterOS cloud-based 3D printer management software. All UAB students, faculty, and staff who complete required 3D printer training will have remote access to the printers managed in 3DPrinterOS.

LulzBot-flavored Cura is available as slicing software for the LulzBot printers.  The software can be downloaded from the LulzBot website.
