TAZ TK0

Post by cozmicray » Mon May 13, 2013 11:18 am

Any TAZ TK0 build logs/forums/groups out there?
Where?

Beta builders, kits?

Would like to build one or at least follow along a build

I have a Ordbot Hadron I built and use
RAMPS1.4, Marlin, Repetier-Host, Slic3r, sketchup

Looking for bigger build area and "better" printer

Really excited about TK0
Following Trinitylabs A1 and Mendelmax 2.0 development

Tnx

Hi guys,

I am building a TAZ (TK0). Finishing up the printed parts tonight. Ordering hardware in the next week.

I will be posting more substantive (IE these are problems I ran into, my solutions) on my blog, savorywatt.com and I was going to keep a thread going with micro updates on reprap.org's forums and G+ but I will update here too.

I don't understand
Lutzbot has this TAZ printer
but
they are not producing it
not offering a kit
not asking for beta builders/testers
just putting out an open source design?

confusing

Judging by their shipping/stock info http://devel.lulzbot.com/TK-0/Documents ... -to-WP.ods

they are actually actively producing TAZs right now, and stocking up. They just haven't announced it yet, and haven't begun to sell yet. They will also quite likely offer kits as well, if we can judge by their past offerings.
Many of us are simply too excited to wait, and have enough information to build our own immediately

The TAZ is actually live as of this morning. You can see it here: https://www.lulzbot.com/products/taz-3d-printer . We do plan to sell parts at some point; although, it may be some time until we are able to get ahead of printing parts for the assembled printers.

Can't wait for the manual to come out. I guess I'm going to have to call it a TAZ from now on.

When I asked, quite a while ago, they told me they aren't going to be selling kits, at least upgrade kits. I would love being able to turn my AO-101 into one of those. I will eventually build my own printer when I feel more comfortable and really need to. So far my AO-101 does everything I want to do

Thanks for catching those! They have been fixed. I'm looking forward to the TAZ as well, I have an old Prusa that is just begging to be converted into something.
