LOVELAND - Aleph Objects announced it has released two new products for advanced users of its LulzBot TAZ 3D printers.
The all-new Dual Extruder and FlexyDually Tool Heads are upgrades that give experienced users the ability to print in two colors of the same material or two different types of material, LulzBot said.
The Dual Extruder features two of LulzBot's standard tool heads that can heat up to 240 degree Celsius and handle a wide variety of materials including PLA, ABS, HIPS, PVA, LayBrick and LayWood.
The FlexyDually features one standard tool head and a second Flexystruder tool head that allows users to print with flexible filaments like NinjaFlex, LulzBot said.
"The LulzBot FlexyDually Tool Head has enabled me to solve some complicated mechanical problems using 3D printing and also develop some interesting creations," said James Bruton, founder of XRobots.
"Fusing rubber-like and rigid plastic together opens up many possibilities for manufacturing compliant joints for robotics, prosthetics and prop building. It really pushes the envelope in 3D printing innovation."
Like all products made by Aleph Objects Inc., both tool heads are fully Open Source Hardware so users can view source files to make and share modifications and improvements.
"We are proud of the new LulzBot Dual Extruder and FlexyDually Tool Heads that make the LulzBot TAZ more versatile than ever," said Jeff Moe, Aleph founder and CEO.
