Example Image of the Lulzbot TAZ 5

The LulzBot TAZ 5 has a number of advantages over the Ultimaker 2. These include a larger extruder nozzle, allowing for faster 3d printing, a larger build volume, an extruder with the ability to use a wide range of filaments, and generally better print quality and a more robust design. The PEI print surface makes bed preparations, such as glue stick, unnecessary for PLA and ABS printing.
