Product Features

The LulzBot Aerostruder v2 Micro Tool Head is perfect for engineers, digital artists, and designers seeking a higher level of detail and surface quality. Enjoy the convenience and reliability offered by the LulzBot ecosystem including Cura LulzBot Edition software and Marlin firmware. With layer heights less than one-third the thickness of a penny, think small.

A high-output centrifugal fan and quad-port cooling duct support elaborate prints with extensive bridging, cooling filament in 360-degrees before it has time to sag between points. Lightweight and compact, the Aerostruder v2 Micro connects to your LulzBot Mini 2 3D Printer quickly and easily to bring high-resolution 3D prints to your LulzBot 3D Printer.

The Aerostruder v2 Micro features a genuine E3D Titan Aero Extruder/Hot End with a 0.25 millimeter nozzle enabling out of the box 3D printing at resolutions as low as 0.05 mm layers, or 50 microns! Advanced users can achieve even finer resolutions. This tool head is currently compatible with the LulzBot Mini 2 3D Printer. LulzBot TAZ users will also be able to enjoy high-detail printing with an adapter that is in development.

Frequently Asked Questions

Discouraged Filament:
Due to the small nozzle diameter, use of abrasive or composite (wood-filled, metal-filled, etc.) filament is not recommended due to the potential risk of clogging.

Compatibility Alert:
This tool head is currently compatible with the LulzBot Mini 2 3D Printer. LulzBot TAZ 6, 5, and LulzBot Mini users will also be able to enjoy high-detail printing with an adapter that is in development.

What materials can be used with the LulzBot Aerostruder v2 Tool Head?

You can use almost any, including flexible filaments like NinjaFlex! We STRONGLY recommend avoiding filled filaments like bronzeFill and woodFill. The particulates in these materials may be too large to pass through the nozzle.

Will the Z-offset need to be adjusted due to the different nozzle size?

For optimal first layer adhesion, you will want to adjust the Z-offset so that the nozzle tip is closer to the print surface. Follow the instructions here.

Will I need to use an enclosure when printing with the LulzBot Aerostruder v2 Tool Head?

Because the nozzle diameter is so small, print times will be longer. We recommend printing with materials engineered or naturally optimized for 3D printing, like nGen, INOVA-1800, or PLA. Alternatively, we recommend using an enclosure when printing with materials like ABS to mitigate warping/lifting.

Get the Quality Filament You Need

Nothing will impact your 3D printing results like the kind of filament you use. Good filament is highly consistent in diameter, is wound evenly onto the spool with just the right amount of tension, and will not tangle when being unwound. 3D Universe offers a wide range of high-quality filaments to choose from. We provide a 100% satisfaction guarantee on all filament we sell. If you have any problems, just send back the unused portion of the spool for a full refund. Check out our filament collection...
