TAZ Slic3r profiles

We have some new Slic3r profiles available for those wanting a starting point in Slic3r. There are 3 main profiles: fast, medium and fine. Each of the three have two options, either with support turned on, and set for autosupport, or support turned off and set with the standard 45 degree overhang threshold.

They can be found here: https://www.lulzbot.com/support/taz-slic3r-profiles

To view the contents of each profile simply click on them. Your browser should display the contents. To save the profile right click on the profile you would like and select “Save as”. Once saved to a memorable location, load the configuration file in Slic3r by selecting File > Import Config.

THANK-YOU for this! I’m using the medium, no support config and my TAZ is actually turning out respectable prints now!

Where are all the profiles? I only show one.

They took the rest of them down because they did not produce quality parts. They are working on new ones and posting them as they are completed. Jebba posted about it earlier in another thread.


Hmm, Hasn’t been updated since 2014.

Does anyone have slic3r profiles for the TAZ 6? I need a good starting point, something to make sure the bed size & origin is correct, and has the autoleveling code.

You can pull the start and end Gcode from our Cura profiles to ensure you have the bed leveling routine set properly. The machine settings will also be in Cura located under Machine > Machine Settings.

You can use these settings as a base profile for any slicing program out there.

It was not quite as simple as copying the start and end code. Both Cura and Slic3r have strings in their start code that get substituted with numbers by the software, but they use different strings, and different ways of denoting strings.
For example, the line in cura gcode: “M140 S{print_bed_temperature}; get bed heating up” must be changed in Slic3r to “M140 S[first_layer_bed_temperature] ; get bed heating up”

In any case, I was able to configure Slic3r properly and print a small test print with it without breaking my printer.

BTW, Slic3r is not a wisiwig tool. I found that what it displayed in the preview was not the same as what was actually printed. The specific example of this is that I set loops (minimum) to 1 the skirt height to 5 layers, and the minimum extrusion length to 15mm, with this, the preview showed about 5 rings of skirt for the 1st 5 layers of the print, but what actually printed was the first layer with 5 rings, and the remaining 4 layers with just a single ring. This is what I actually wanted, but it would be nice if the preview showed this correctly.
