*E3D Titan Aero - Assembly

$169.00

Free shipping in Canada for orders over $140 before tax. (via Canada Post)

No motor included. 

These kits have the latest bearing fix from E3D.

E3D recommends the  'Compact but Powerful' motor with the IGUS bearing version.

E3D 'Slimline' motor can be used on older bearing and the new bearing versions when released.

Titan Aero integrates the Titan extruder and V6 HotEnd into one neat little package. All the lightweight performance, reliability and usability of V6 and Titan, along with some benefits all of its own. Ready to buy as a complete kit or as an upgrade for your Titan extruder, in both 1.75mm and 3mm diameters. Mount two side by side by pairing the standard and mirrored versions, and make the most of your build volume in dual set-ups. Check out the E3D blog post to find out more about the engineering behind Titan Aero. 

Compact & Rigid 

By combining a HotEnd and extruder, Titan Aero is ultra compact. It offers you an extra 25mm of Z-axis build height compared to a V6 and Titan combo. Thanks to its compactness, Titan Aero is also very rigid, allowing it to work with the fastest of printers and cope better with knocks and bumps. 

Accurate Extrusion, Great for Flexibles 

By having a short, well constrained filament path, Aero is great for flexibles. It minimises places where filament can bend, buckle and jam, giving a better flexibles printing experience. 

The short filament path is also beneficial for regular filaments by improving responsiveness. This means that extrusion can start and stop more immediately, giving accurate, cleaner prints. 

V6 Compatible, All Metal Hotend 

Titan Aero is built on the E3D V6 all metal design, allowing you to reliably print any thermoplastic at temperatures of more than 300°C. 

It’s also been designed to take standard V6 heatbreaks, so that you can interchange components from E3D’s entire modular ecosystem to suit your needs. Choose from temperature sensors, heater cartridges, Volcano, or one of the 92 different nozzles we provide. 

Easy to Install, Easy to Use 

Aero is mounted using a standard NEMA17 pattern, allowing it to be fitted onto a wide range of printers and making designing mounting solutions straightforward to do. 

By using Titan’s custom engineering and rigorously tested extrusion mechanism, Aero is highly reliable and retains all of the smart usability features. It’s a breeze to load and unload filament, manually extrude, adjust idler tension, and clean out debris from the hobb. 

Likewise the use of Titan’s 3:1 gearing ratio allows the use of smaller motors, making for a lighter weight carriage whilst maintaining reliability and pushing power. 

Titan Aero Key Features: 

  • Ultra compact design, giving an extra 25mm of Z build height compared to a V6 and Titan combo. 
  • Short filament path, making printing flexibles easier to do. 
  • The short filament path also makes the extruder more responsive, improving print quality. 
  • Includes the existing benefits of both Titan and V6. 
  • All metal HotEnd that can print any thermoplastic at temperatures of 300+ degrees celsius. 
  • Available in 1.75mm and 2.85mm, standard and mirrored versions 
  • Compatible with the rest of the E3D V6 ecosystem, allowing you to switch out sensors, heaters and nozzles for your application. 
  • Reliable and easy to maintain extruder. 
  • Geared extrusion for greater accuracy and lower weight.

Good Extrusion - lacking install Instructions

4/5
Strike 1: Aero shipped with a bushing while they sort out bearing issues....Strike 2: Turns out I needed 2mm motor mount spacer for the extruder to align properly to my FT-5 Nema17 motor....no mention of this I could find....had to figure it out :( Found a part on thingiverse https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1549807 Finally though I have a usable printer! Thanks Spool3D!!

Poor quality control

2/5
Surprisingly the Titan Aero was a disappointment. The main cog wheel was misaligned, the bearings both would seize on occasion. According to E3D website these are known issues and they are "working on it". Then after finally replacing the bearings and realigning the cog, I broke my heat break trying to clear out one of many Jams. Still once I fixed all the problems, it seemed to work great (except for the jams during a filament change)

Its OK

3/5
Cool hotend assembly, that may work great. However it is terribly machined. No matter what i do the filament nub gear will not align with the tension arm hole leading to it jamming constantly. This seems to be a known issue with these. Sadly its not worth the money seeing its random if you get an assembly that fits together properly.

Comes with everything you need for a great extruder.

5/5
Don't forget that you'll need a spacer/mount. Some assembly required.

Great Upgrade

5/5
Print quality has improved dramatically, prints flexible filament perfectly. It should come with a generic mounting bracket. Installation missing one critical pc of info.
