A friend of mine bought a Taz6, and I really must say, I’m impressed. I have a need for one with my business, but unfortunately, I need a larger print area (x, y axis).
Has anyone modded their Taz6 for say a 16x16 print bed? I’ve sourced the heater already, and getting the extruded pieces and Thompson rods are no big deal. Having a machine shop make the bed, and buying the glass surface is easy peasy too.
The only difficulty is extending the x/y maximums along with locating the pads for the auto leveling. I asked Lulzbot about making a larger printer, and they said not at this time. I then asked if they would assist with the coding if I made the mods, and I was ignored.
There is a competing USA made 3d printer of the size I need, for comparable pricing, but I don’t like the frame build on that machine. I much prefer the Thompson rod precision of the Lulzbot.
Thoughts? Ideas? Snide remarks?
