Newark element14 offers LulzBot TAZ 6 and LulzBot Mini 3D printers

Jan. 26, 2018

Chicago, IL. Newark element14 announced it has added the LulzBot TAZ 6 and LulzBot Mini to its range of 3D printers.

The LulzBot TAZ 6, suited for use by engineers, developers, architects, or hobbyists, is a reliable and easy-to-use 3D printer boasting a print volume of 19,600 cm3 usable space. The intermediate-level printer also features innovative self-leveling and self-cleaning and a modular tool-head design for flexible and multi-material upgrades.

An integrated automatic bed levelling system and self-cleaning nozzle ensure a clean and perfectly level first layer with no manual adjustment or fiddling with complex leveling systems and a more consistent and reliable print.

A metal LulzBot v2 hot end enables users to print to higher temperatures and takes advantage of cutting-edge new materials, and a heated PEI print surface provides an easy-to-clean, flat surface, keeping 3D printed objects in place when hot and releasing them when cool.

The LulzBot TAZ 6 has a build volume nearly the size of a basketball, enabling huge 3D prints or the production of many objects in a single print run. Multiple tool-head upgrade options such as Flexystruder, Dual Extruder, or FlexDually provide reliable printing of flexible filaments, two-color or multimaterial 3D printing.

Out-of-the-box, LulzBot 3D printers support a range of materials including PLA, ABS, nylon, co-polyester, and polycarbonate blends, or users can build their own material profiles with 200+ customizable settings in the Cura LulzBot Edition.

Users have the flexibility to use their preferred 3D software program or can download the Cura LulzBot Edition to their printer, providing hundreds of quick-print profiles built in for seamless 3D printing. Users can gain support and advice on the printer and projects through the Lulzbot forum.

For beginners and those looking for a desktop 3D printer, the LulzBot Mini is a high-performance desktop 3D printer that’s suitable for home users, makers, designers, engineers, or educators. The LulzBot Mini is built to work straight out-of- the-box with no complicated assembly process, meaning that users can be unboxed and printing with standard profiles within 15 minutes.

The Mini is operated by the same straightforward software and easy-to-read documentation as the LulzBot TAZ 6, providing users with a combination of ease-to-use and flexible industrial-strength capacity.

James McGregor, global head of test and tools at Premier Farnell and Newark element14 said, “The range of LulzBot 3D printers are outstanding in their class, and provide versatility and reliability for users. The quality of print is demonstrated in the fact that LulzBot use their own printers to make parts for more printers, with more than 2 million production-grade parts. These printers provide real options for customers—whether they want to create a prototype, test concepts, or create production-grade parts right from their desks.”

Each printer arrives pre-assembled and calibrated, complete with a toolkit, unpacking guide, and a step-by-step manual.

The LulzBot Taz 6 3D Printer and LulzBot Mini 3D Printer are available to buy from Farnell element14 in Europe, Newark element14 in North America and element14 in Asia Pacific.
