  1. E3D Tool-Changer and Motion System: Beta 30 incoming!

    E3D Tool-Changer and Motion System: Beta 30 incoming!
    Back in March we announced that we’ve been developing what might just be the coolest thing to hit 3D printing in a very long time, our tool-changing motion system! We opened up the opportunity for you to reserve a place in the queue and have been overwhelmed by the many hundreds of you that have expressed your interest in a project...

  2. My month as a special guest at E3D

    My month as a special guest at E3D
    It was January, I was home in snowy Sweden, everything as normal. A few of us were killing time, talking how to print big Benchys on Twitter, when E3D Online suddenly posted an image of some nozzles from their soon to launch Super-volcano HotEnd. Which promised to have 2-3x the flow of a standard Volcano, or up to 9x higher...

  3. Research and Development: Motion System and Tool-Changer

    Research and Development: Motion System and Tool-Changer
    We’ve been building a tool-changing 3D printer, and an incredible motion system to support it. TL:DR: We’ve developed a tool-changing 3D printer, which might just be the coolest thing to hit 3D printing in a very long time. We’ve built it on what we think is one of the best motion systems ever put on a printer. We want to...

  4. Hi, E3D here. We need to talk to you about groovemount.

    Hi, E3D here. We need to talk to you about groovemount.
    TL;DR: Groovemount is okay, but it's a hangover from when 3D printers were made in sheds. They aren’t any more, so we’re offering an alternative, using screw threads. If you think this would suit your printer better you can buy one here (1.75mm, suitable for bowden or direct systems). We’d also really like to get your feedback. Establishing a...

  5. Taking Cyclops and Chimera to the Next Level

    Taking Cyclops and Chimera to the Next Level
    We're proud to announce new and improved dual extrusion from E3D. Chimera+ and Cyclops+ are swappable HotEnds designed specifically for both air- and water-cooled dual extrusion.   Cyclops+ is a two-filament, one-nozzle HotEnd specifically designed to switch between two colours. There’s never an idle nozzle oozing while the other is printing (so there's no need for an ooze...

  6. Bringing an end to BearingGate: Improving Titan and Titan Aero

    Bringing an end to BearingGate: Improving Titan and Titan Aero
    After the unfortunate sequence of events which led to Bearing-Gate and following some serious stress-testing by the engineering team here at E3D, we're happy to announce that all Titan Extruder products (including Titan Aero), are back in stock with a complete bearing and lid solution . Briefly, here's a summary of what we've done: 1. Lids Lids have now...

  7. BearingGate: An engineering failure analysis

    BearingGate: An engineering failure analysis
    TL;DR: Some of our bearings in the Titan Extruder and Titan Aero have been failing due to a series of unfortunate events and we're really sorry about that. We have a solution to fix the problem on the way, and we'll be in a position to issue replacement parts in the next few weeks. Titan products shipping from now on...

  8. Water is Cool.

    Water is Cool.
    NB: We use the term ‘water’ interchangeably with ‘coolant’ throughout this blog post and, indeed, the product description. ‘Well which is it!?’ we hear you cry. Well it’s both, in that we recommend using a water-based coolant with Titan Aqua and the E3D water-cooling kit. You could use plain water and it would work, but it would also go mouldy...

  9. Battling Bowden Tube Physics

    Battling Bowden Tube Physics
    Those of you who've seen our new Gold V6 will have seen the swanky new Capricorn PTFE tubing and collet clips that it comes with. This blog post goes into more detail on the need for these upgrades, and how they work. TL;DR: We have a new high-performance bowden tube, and ways of making our tube couplings grip the tube...

  10. TCT 2017 - Behind the Scenes with E3D

    TCT 2017 - Behind the Scenes with E3D
    It’s mid October 2017 and here at E3D we can’t quite believe how fast the year’s flying by. With the launch of Titan Aero nearly 6 months ago, along with supplying our HotEnds to many open source 3D printer manufacturers (Lulzbot, Prusa, Dagoma to name a few), we’re delighted that the E3D ecosystem has become synonymous with reliable, high performance...
