Do not leave the printer unattended while printing Also, don't forget to turn the printer off when you are no longer using it.
Windows users will need to install drivers.
Usable Print Area
298mm x 275mm x 250mm (11.7in x 10.8in x 9.8in)
Users of Linux, Windows, OSX will need to install the following software:
- Pronterface - or Repeteir-Host for manual operation of the printer as well as for starting print jobs
- Slic3r - for creating gcode (print jobs) from 3D models
- Additionally, Lulzbot provides a slic3r config file for the Taz3
Both of these files have appropriate settings for the 'printer settings' and 'filament settings' tabs. To use them, go to File > Load Config in Slic3r and select the downloaded file. You must then go to each tab and hit the 'save' icon next to the settings selection dropdown box, or else Slic3r will forget the settings when you close it.
Print Settings Without Support - Fast
This file is for the 'print settings' tab of Slic3r. This is a 'fast' profile, geared towards finishing prints relatively quickly. It still provides excellent surface quality. This profile does not include support, so for large overhangs you'll need the next configuration file.
Print Settings With Support - Fast
