LulzBot® TAZ 6 Single Extruder Tool Head v2.1
Built with an all metal LulzBot® Hexagon hot end capable of heating up to to 300°C (572°F), so it easily handles standard filaments like HIPS, PLA, and ABS, as well as advanced filaments including heavy duty nylon, T-Glase, and polycarbonate.
Upgrades from the version 2 tool head include dual filament cooling fans for even cooling for both sides, which prevents offside drooping, and a larger heat sink cooling fans to reduce heat creep.
Installing the TAZ 6 V 2.1 on your TAZ 5? You’ll need to make the following modifications:
(With thanks to Joseph):
– Some TAZ 5 V2C toolhead harnesses have 2 locating pins to prevent plugging the toolhead in backwards. As the TAZ 6 adds a sense wire that is not needed on the TAZ 5, one of the locating pins will need to be removed from the TAZ 5 harness. You can remove the pin by pushing in the small silver retaining tab on the connector housing.
– You may also need to adjust your build plate size in whatever slicer you are using. Having bent the switch out, the extruder now thinks the edge of the bed is about 6mm to the right of its actual edge.
