Convert the TAZ4 filament extruder from 3mm diameter to 1.75mm.
Let your lulzbot TAZ4 print in all the different 1.75mm filaments!
3mm vs 1.75mm
Apart from being very similar, there’s three minor advantages to printing with one over the other. Our main reasoning was we have lots of spools of 1.75mm filament!
• 1.75mm filament is quicker to heat up.
• Requires less pressure to feed.
• Prints higher resolution on smaller parts.

Every Thursday is #3dthursday here at Adafruit! The DIY 3D printing community has passion and dedication for making solid objects from digital models. Recently, we have noticed electronics projects integrated with 3D printed enclosures, brackets, and sculptures, so each Thursday we celebrate and highlight these bold pioneers!
Have you considered building a 3D project around an Arduino or other microcontroller? How about printing a bracket to mount your Raspberry Pi to the back of your HD monitor? And don’t forget the countless LED projects that are possible when you are modeling your projects in 3D!
The Adafruit Learning System has dozens of great tools to get you well on your way to creating incredible works of engineering, interactive art, and design with your 3D printer! If you’ve made a cool project that combines 3D printing and electronics, be sure to let us know, and we’ll feature it here!
