E3D Titan – Final Thoughts

Well, it’s been about a month, and I have to say, the Titan seems to be rock-solid reliable, and the spring lever makes filament changes a snap – no manually feeding 400mm of filament by cranking the gear wheel any more!

I have to say, I’m very happy with the extruder, and if/when I make the jump to dual extrusion, I can safely say a second Titan will be at the top of the shopping list.

Thanks E3D – a great product.

Note: I have no association with E3D, other than being a happy customer.

Unboxing and Assembling the Titan

The unboxing and assembly of the Titan was simple (apart from at one point where I realised I put my printed mount (the red part which I printed from the design on Thingiverse) on upside down…

I won’t re-hash the excellent instructions from E3D (there’s no point) – so what follows is a series of photographs showing the assembly process

A New Printer

Just before Christmas,I built myself a new 3D printer from a kit made
by think3dprint3d.com – the latest version of their Kossel Mini.

Now
sported LED lighting too as i discovered that the IKEA Dioder LED light
strips fit perfectly around the top of the frame.  I designed and
printed a small hanger bracket to suspend the lights from the printer
frame,so there’s no velcro or double-sided sticky pads involved.

Since this photo was taken, I’ve also upgraded the spool holder and added edging strips to tidy up some of the wiring runs.

The base is a very old Belkin switched surge protector, which was originally bought when CRT monitors were the normal thing, however it’s perfect for controlling the printer and lights power.
