Print Solid and Flexible filaments on your LulzBot TAZ!

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!

3D Printer helps improve radiation treatment

Cutting edge cancer radiation treatments are being developed using LulzBot 3D printers!

http://kdvr.com/2017/05/10/3-d-printer-helps-improve-radiation-treatment/

Alex Markovic is an oncologist at Northern Colorado Medical Center in Greeley Colorado. Alex and his team came up with the idea of using scans of patients to create a 3D printed “bolus” mold that conforms precisely to each patient to optimize the distribution of radiation treatments.
After purchasing a LulzBot TAZ 6 and Flexydually v2 toolhead to test their designs, Alex and his team have received 3D Printer training and consulting from IT-Works 3D to improve their skills and results. It’s been a pleasure to do a small part to move this new medical treatment forward!

New high performance US made 3D printing filaments with free shipping!

New Inova-2008 PETg 3mm 3D printing filament is made in the USA by Chroma Strand Labs and only $40/kg with free shipping!

PETg is one of the hottest new 3d printing filaments, featuring:

  • Shiny!
  • Easy printability
  • Low Emissions
  • High Strength
  • Very High Dimensional Accuracy
  • Very Low Warping and Splitting

This means it’s a great fit for anyone that wants strong, good looking prints that “just work”.

Inova-2008 joins Chroma Strand Labs Inova-1800 Amphora Co-Polyester as a premium quality filament. Chroma Strand blends and extrudes it themselves to give you:

  • Low dye % across all colors
  • Stringent tolerances for consistency of diameter and concentricity
  • Premium filament bases

Why do these matter? Dye doesn’t print the same as the filament base. Chroma Strand Labs goes to the extra expense to keep dye composition low so their filament prints the same color to color and batch to batch.

Check out these great new translucent colors of Inova-1800 now only $70/kg, also with free shipping!
