The Titan has been known as the next generation extruder for your 3D printer.
Titan brings high performance, lightweight universal extrusion to all 3D printing enthusiasts with the benefits of geared extrusion in a lightweight, punchy little package.
*Please Note: This extruder assembly doesn't include the stepper motor featured in the images. This is just for demonstration purposes to show how the stepper motor will connect with the Titan.
With 3:1 gear reduction, precision milled hobbed gearing and E3D engineering, the Titan has been developed to push with awesome power, while also being incredibly light and compact.
The gear ratio means you’re able to use lighter motors as you’ll need less torque for the same filament pushing force - so direct drive systems have a lighter moving carriage, and bowden-style printers become powerful, reliable little beasts when combined with your E3D V6 hot end.
Titan fits perfectly into E3D’s modular ecosystem, Titan works for all configurations of bowden, direct extrusion, 1.75mm and 3mm. To switch filament diameters only the filament guide needs to be swapped out, and both 3mm and 1.75mm versions are supplied with every Titan. To use Titan as a bowden extruder you just insert a bowden adaptor into the body instead of a hotend. Bowden adaptors for 3mm or 1.75mm are available as a low cost optional extra.
Extruders with high gear ratios often struggle with snappy retracts and keeping up with Volcano for big, fast printing. Titan's balanced gearing ratio of 3:1 means that you can cope with fast extrusion situations like Volcano, and the lightweight gear-set gives snappy retractions.
Direct-drive extruders can have issues with ‘pulsing’ of flow, because the lower resolution of filament motion results in filament being extruded in pulses. This results in a slight wavy surface finish, and is particularly prevalent when printing at low layer heights. Using 3:1 gearing triples the resolution of the system and allows for smooth printing at the lowest of layer heights, using the smallest of nozzles.
A fully guided filament path from extruder to print means your filament is carefully guided every step of the way, ensuring a smooth journey to the meltzone. The guide constrains filament throughout the extruder, leaving no gaps and no opportunity for buckling of flexible filaments.
The CNC machined individually cut filament drive teeth allow grip of the slipperiest of Nylons.
A combination of grip and torque allows extrusion of even the most viscous materials like metal filled and carbon reinforced filaments.
1.75mm or 3mm filament: Titan is compatible with either diameter of 3D printing filament, and easily swaps between the two.
The extruder has ample force for even the toughest, gnarliest materials out there, ones that would cause lesser extruders to skip, grind or buckle.
Adjustable tension allows for use with all filaments currently available. Furthermore an idler force indicator scale allows you to set the idler tension to a known and repeatable set point. This means you can always set Titan back to a known idler force for each of your filament types, and settings for filaments can be shared between Titan users or even provided by filament manufacturers.
Universal Adaptable NEMA17 mounting - modular, easy to mount to the widest range of printers and simple to design mounting solutions for. Titan works for all configurations of bowden, direct extrusion, 1.75mm and 3mm. To switch filament diameters only the filament guide needs to be swapped out, and both 3mm and 1.75mm versions are supplied with every Titan. To use Titan as a bowden extruder you just insert a bowden adaptor into the body instead of a hotend. Bowden adaptors for 3mm or 1.75mm are available as a low cost optional extra.
The Titan extruder is moulded in lightweight engineering plastics to provide a best-in-class performance to weight ratio. This was intentional in order to make your extrusion system as accessible as possible, as the shape of the drive gear teeth ensures that filament flakes off the gear cleanly, with any left over debris easily cleanable with a simple brush and no disassembly required, even while in full operation. The easy-access thumb-wheel makes it easy to manually extrude, purge, load and unload 3D Filaments. And if the need for disassembly does arise, the Titan easily strips down with 1 allen key in 1 minute, so that everything can come apart and reassemble easily, quickly and more efficiently than almost any of the other Extruder Bodies available on the market.
