Aleph Objects, Inc. has released a new multi-material tool head for the LulzBot TAZ, dubbed the FlexyDually Tool Head v2. This expert-level upgrade enables users to 3D print both flexible and rigid materials during a single print run.
“LulzBot 3D printers feature proven extruders with industry-leading robustness and millions of hours of testing and use,” Aleph Objects, Inc. Vice President of Marketing Harris Kenny said. “By upgrading the LulzBot tool head line, our community has better ways than ever to reliably prototype and bring ideas to life.”
This professional-grade tool head uses open format 3 mm filament, heats up to 300 degrees Celsius (572 degrees Fahrenheit), and is capable of printing dozens of combinations of materials. The FlexyDually Tool Head v2 is an accessory upgrade compatible with the LulzBot TAZ 4 and up.
The FlexyDually Tool Head v2 is officially supported in the latest version of Cura LulzBot Edition, available online at LulzBot.com/Cura. The latest version of Cura LulzBot Edition includes built-in quickprint profiles for popular materials like NinjaFlex® and SemiFlex™ from NinjaTek™ (a division of Fenner Drives).
