By using a 3:1 gearing ratio, precision-milled hobbs, and an adjustable idler lever, Titan is a powerful extruder whilst also being lightweight and compact.
The 3:1 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 setups have a lighter moving carriage, and Bowden setups become powerful, reliable printers when combined with an E3D V6 HotEnd.
Titan works well for all configurations, Bowden, direct, 1.75mm and 2.85mm. To switch between filament diameters, all that’s required is to replace the filament guide and the Bowden adaptor/ HotEnd.
Extruders with high gear ratios often fail with rapid retracts and struggle with keeping up with the Volcano heater block. 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’ flow due to the lower resolution of the gearing and hobb teeth, this can result in a wavy surface finish, becoming particularly prevalent when printing with low layer heights. Using a 3:1 gearing ratio triples the resolution of the system, allowing smoother printing at the lowest of layer heights, using the smallest of nozzles.
Please note: when a motor is selected a compact but powerful motor is supplied not a slimline motor.
