British start-up E3D-Online has today announced their new 2-in-1 Titan Aero 3D printing extruder and hotend combo.
E3D announced the Titan, a lightweight and universally compatible 3D printer extruder in May 2016. The next step was to integrate a V6 into it, creating a compact, 2-in-1 Extruder and Hot End.
This is Titan Aero, which has "the lightweight performance, reliability and usability of V6 and Titan."
By combining a HotEnd and extruder, Titan Aero is ultra-compact. It offers an extra 25mm of Z-axis build height compared to a V6 and Titan combo. Because of its compactness, Titan Aero is also very rigid, allowing it to work with fast FDM 3D printers and cope better with knocks and bumps. "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," writes E3D in a press release. "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."
The 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 your needs. Choose from temperature sensors, heater blocks, or one of 92 different E3D nozzles.
Titan Aero is now ready to buy as a complete kit (£90) or as an upgrade (£32) for your Titan extruder, in both 1.75mm and 3mm diameters.
