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?
We’ve had a great time working with Shawn and Cassy of Sparkfun Electronics on their video series about how to build your own 1lb 3D printed “Plastic Ant” class combat robot for the upcoming Sparkfun AVC Oct 14th and 15th at the Denver Maker Faire!
The complete series is below. Here’s the Plastic Ant Combat Robot Class Rules, and our shared doc with helpful links to shop for plastic ant parts. We hope to see you at AVC!
We had a great time collaborating on this Sparkfun video about making 3D printable combat robots!

Sketchup hosted a live stream on 3D printing today that showed off several different printers and technologies, and featured IT-Works’ E3D Titan Aero Toolhead for LulzBot Taz, along with Colorado Made Chroma Strand Labs ABS and Inova-2008 PETG 3mm filament. There’s an IT-Works coupon code too.
Video starts around 8:40, enjoy!
Want one toolhead for your LulzBot TAZ for both solid and flexible filaments?
IT-Works has been working hard on developing a toolhead based on the E3D Titan Aero for the LulzBot TAZ 5 and 6 printers, and we’ll be releasing them soon!
The E3D Titan Aero is a high quality, British made, light weight, compact integrated hotend and extruder that makes it easy to switch between flexible and solid filaments on your TAZ.
Available for both 3mm and 1.75mm filament!
The Titan Aero also is compatible with other E3D hotends and nozzles, giving you options for upgrading your toolhead.
The toolhead is in field beta testing now, and we expect to release them in June. Visit the product page for more information and join the waitlist for updates and notification when they are available!
