The sides are metal, not plastic.

Not sure. Often it will mean what is ordered vs not ordered, but not certain in this one.

It looks like a single extruder with a second left fan.

Will the auto bed-leveling be a feature that can be purchased and added to a TAZ 5?

Not certain yet. We'd like to make it easy. There likely will be a lot of people finding a way to do it, even if we don't make it a product.

Given comments on sag in the Taz 10mm rods, will the Kauri have larger diameter rods, say 12mm, and bearings with less play? Would this even be a worthwhile improvement?

May order a Taz5 next month, but....

I think it will be 10mm, but may use a different bushing. Details here:

Please, make the bed-leveling a upgrade kit compatible with Taz 5! :)

Im currently building a Kauri using the standard taz side beams. I actually found appropriate X tops and bottoms on thingverse( i wanted to post the links but for some reason is freezing at this moment). I am will list the parts im using at the bottom but so far the build is going smoothly ill get some pics up as soon as i can

Taz 3/5 frame
Taz 4/5 y axis and carriage
Kauri X axis and carriage (Printing and fitting drag chains right now)
Custom Taz X ends off thingverse( They shrink the X travel slightly so the X motor and X axis ends clear the vertical frame rails)

Unfortunately i have never owned a lulzbot (they were out of my price range in the beginning)
So im printing everything on a very very modified i3 prusa rework.

But it looks like by using the Custom X ends all the current lulzbot owners will be able to enjoy all the new features of the next Taz even if they cant get a hold of the new fancy sheet metal.

The only new feature im not looking to explore yet is the automatic bed leveling I haven't had to re-level my bed in 8 rolls of filament so i bought the Lulzbot Y plate and glass off their website

And i apologize for the horrendous grammar
