Custom Deep Purple 1.75mm tool head for a LulzBot Taz 3D Printer

1.75mm tool head for the LulzBot Taz 6 3D Printed in Chroma Strand Labs Purple High Performance ABS

Keith wanted to print 1.75mm filament on his LulzBot TAZ 6, so he picked up one of our 1.75mm hexagon hotend kits
He thought black ABS would be too plain for the printed parts, so when he saw the fabulous new deep purple “grape” colored High Performance ABS from Chroma Strand Labs, he knew it was just the ticket for his cool new custom toolhead! You can find the models for the toolhead parts on Thingiverse and LulzBot’s website.
What would you like to print in this great new Purple color?
