You know what would be delicious? sideplates made out of cheese slices!

I like the 2020 extrusion... Looks nice and makes the machine seem more upgradable. But it looks easy enough to lose the plastic/metal sheeting and go back to aluminum extrusions if upgrading z-axis.

Would be nice if the dual extruder were side by side, direct drive... Do away with the cantilever y-adjustment to get nozzle heights even.

Any word on when this may be released?
If they need a tester I would like too volunteer myself.

You can find the schedule estimate here: http://devel.lulzbot.com/TAZ/Lancewood/production_docs/

And, yeah, I have two Taz units and a Mini that run daily... I could give a test unit a workout if need be. BUAHAHAHAH :D

I'm in the same boat as the OP. I'm extremely torn between cashing in on the significant savings for the Black Friday sale (11% savings? Yes please! :D ), and waiting for the TAZ 6, which seems to address many of the (short list of) issues the TAZ 5 has. This will be my first 3D printer purchase, but I have a preference to jump in feet first instead of investing in several lesser machines that don't do everything I want. My primary criteria for choosing a 3D printer are build volume and dual material capability, something the TAZ handles nicely while also having the advantage of being a very sturdy reliable machine. My budget is limited to that $2500 range.

So, ye gurus of Lulzbot, would waiting for February be the best choice, or is getting a TAZ and implementing a batch of mods to correct existing issues the way to go?

Looks like TAZ6 will be released very soon. 3050 units worth of parts have been ordered and in box documentation for what they are calling Olive are out for quote. Shouldn't be long now!

I believe I saw elsewhere there's a vague expectancy of August being the release date.

That's what they told me on the phone yesterday. "Hopefully August"

You can ask Matt from 3D Hubs what he thinks of the TAZ 6 now https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid ... =3&theater
