I am looking to buy a Lulzbot Taz. A little background. I have been printing with a XYZ Printing DaVinci 2.0 for about 9 months now.
Haven’t had the need for a lot of Dual Color Printing (or dual material for that matter).
Have gotten use to bed adhesion. I prefer ABS and purple glue stick as my method of choice.
Looking for maximum bed size. The Taz 5 seems to have the biggest commercial bed on the best rated machine. I would like to be able to print Cosplay props without the need to glue everything together or split .stl files just to glue them back together.
Not sure if the prettier design, self cleaning nozzle, or self leveling bed are really worth it to me. DaVinci had self leveling bed, but it was slow and tedious, nor did it work very well. A feeler gauge was quicker for me. A wire brush for the nozzle does a good cleanup.
With a little patience, I can probably pick up a Taz 6 for $1700 or a Taz 5 for $1199. With the Taz, I can slowly upgrade time and funds permitting. Is there anyone who has had the 5 then upgraded to the 6 where it was worth the price tag for paying more?
Thanks in advance.
