  1. 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...

  2. Snap to it! With MatX and Scaffold Snap

    Snap to it! With MatX and Scaffold Snap
    Following the success of spoolWorks Scaffold and Edge, we're proud to bring you our newest optimised filament pairing: MatX and Scaffold Snap MatX is a drop-in-replacement for ABS applications that provides generally improved properties across the board, with increased layer adhesion and a much improved surface finish. Where ABS prints to a dull gloss, MatX has a lovely...

  3. Open Source, Design Patents, and E3D

    Open Source, Design Patents, and E3D
    Recently we’ve been taking another look at how we license our products here at E3D. There’ve been a few questions about licensing and what it means to be open-source as a hardware manufacturer, so we wanted to state our position clearly and openly for the benefit of all involved. The current process: E3D currently registers designs for most of its...

  4. Introducing T-Fill: Proper British tea from E3D

    Introducing T-Fill: Proper British tea from E3D
    At E3D we work hard to push the limits of what's capable with at-home 3D printing. With our range of professional and experimental filaments we go beyond what's expected in material extrusion.   T-Fill™ is not only the next step in filament innovation, but a loving homage to our homeland. As proud as we are of...

  5. Titan Aero: What do you get if you cross a Titan with a V6?

    Titan Aero: What do you get if you cross a Titan with a V6?
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xfpvm9z28Qk&w=560&h=315 Since smashing into the world of extruders with Titan back in March 2016 the next logical step for E3D was to integrate a Hot End into it, compress it as much as possible and make an ultra-compact all-in-one extruder and hotend. As with the original Titan, we came up with some design objectives before cracking on with prototyping...

  6. Scaffold: More than just support? Experimenting with soluble moulds for composite parts

    Scaffold: More than just support? Experimenting with soluble moulds for composite parts
    It’s been a while since we blogged about something that’s just pure, unabashed, experimental geekery. As proud as we are of our products and as much as we love sharing them with you, we’re also tinkerers at heart. With this in mind, this blog post is about taking one of our established products (Scaffold) and pushing it to see what...

  7. A Long-Awaited BigBox Update

    A Long-Awaited BigBox Update
    We've received countless emails over the past few months regarding BigBox, and while we are sorry for the delay in response, we were reluctant to make any announcements before everything was completely certain. This blog post is a big one, going into the good, bad, and unexpected challenges of the BigBox project. However in short: Commercially producing a machine was...

  8. Nozzles and blocks and hobbs, oh my!

    Nozzles and blocks and hobbs, oh my!
    As a special Christmas treat this week we're bringing you a triple-whammy of stocking filler product releases! Get your digits fiddling with E3D's new hardened hobbs, plated copper heater blocks, and nozzles. Note that we said plated copper, not copper plated! These blocks and nozzles are made of high temperature copper alloy and plated with non-stick nickel (and laser-engraved with the...

  9. 0.15mm High-resolution nozzles: For really very extremely small prints

    0.15mm High-resolution nozzles: For really very extremely small prints
    Here at E3D we're continuously trying to develop new and better technology for 3D printers. With the Volcano we solved the problem of printing big, strong, and fast, but how about printing really small and fine details? The 0.25mm nozzle has been available for several years now, but really it isn’t all that much smaller than a “standard” 0.4mm nozzle...

  10. Scaffold: A Soluble Support for Total Geometric Freedom

    Scaffold: A Soluble Support for Total Geometric Freedom
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3VWd0IN7s9Q&w=854&h=480 We all know about the age-old overhang problem: The inability to print features that overhang beyond a certain angle.  Same-material breakaway supports are far from a perfect solution - even with some really great algorithms out there you’re still never going to be able to extract support out of an awkward internal cavity, or deep screw hole...
