E3D announces 2-in-1 Titan Aero hotend extruder combo

The UK’s E3D Online has announced technical specifications and pricing of their 2-in-1 3D printing extruder and hotend combo.

The company say, the new device has, ”the lightweight performance, reliability and usability of V6 and Titan.

The Titan Aero has an extra 25mm of Z-axis build height compared to a V6 and Titan combo. Because of its compactness, the Titan Aero is also very rigid, E3D says this allows it to work with the fastest of FFF 3D printers and cope better with knocks and bumps.

E3D tell us,

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.

E3D modular ecosystem

The 2-in-1 Titan Aero is built on the E3D V6 all metal design and can print at temperatures up to 400°C. Users can interchange components from E3D’s modular ecosystem to suit their needs. Modules include temperature sensors, heater blocks, or one of 92 different E3D nozzles.

E3D tell us that the Titan has been well received by early users. YouTuber 3DMakerNoob has given an endorsement saying, “Since installing the Titan Aero my 3D printer feels like a different machine.” At 3D Printing Industry we’re looking forward to seeing if this helps 3D Maker Noob with his earlier announced plans to 3D print the entire Scan the World collection.

The Titan Aero is available as a complete kit or as an upgrade for existing owners of Titan extruder. The Aero comes in both 1.75mm and 3mm diameters. RRP is from £90 for the full Aero extruder and hotend combination, or from £32 to upgrade an existing Titan to Aero capability.

The company will be at MRRF this weekend, so make sure you say hello!
