As with all of LulzBot’s new Tool Heads, the H175 has been designed with the Universal Mounting System, making it a drop in upgrade for the current line of LulzBot 3D printers. It also allows for rapid changes of Tool Heads; each designed for specific tasks and filament diameters within the LulzBot ecosystem. Even owners of the legacy LulzBot TAZ 6 can make the H175 Tool Head compatible with the addition of the Universal Tool Head Adapter, available from LulzBot. The new LulzBot H175 Tool Head features a dual-drive, hardened stainless steel drive train with a fully constrained short filament path combined with the reliable E3D V6 hot end. The E3D Hemera extruder on the H175 provides unrivalled precision by giving excellent control over stops and starts; considerably reduced stringing and blobbing; and greater filament traction, which means slipping and grinding filament are a thing of the past! Material changes are easy using the quick release lever. A conveniently accessible thumbscrew tensioner allows the you to fine-tune the pressure exerted by the drive gears onto the filament.
