E3D Titan Universal Extruder
Titan: A Next-Generation Extruder for your 3D Printer
Titan brings high-performance, lightweight extrusion to everyone! All the benefits of geared extrusion in a lightweight, punchy little package.
Custom machined teeth on the hobbed gearing for serious grip on your filament.
Filament Pushing Power
Print everything from wobbly flexibles to abrasive carbon fibre again and again, thanks to Titan's titanic strength and control.
Titan's low weight and compact build means that it won't slow down your printer, leaving you free to print easily and reliably.
With 3:1 gear reduction, precision milled hobbed gearing and E3D engineering, we’ve developed Titan 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 HotEnd.
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.
