E3D Titan mount for Ultimaker 2

Hey there !

According to latest comments on Thingiverse, a bunch of people might be interested about mounting the E3D Titan extruder on their Ultimaker 2 printer.

So here it is, I am sharing my design with you people !

Please leave your suggestions, comments and feedback if you print it :)

As you can see, I used a fat nema 17 motor, thus I cannot print very fast or i could damage the carriage. I think it should be okay with a pancake sized one.

Pictures ... later :x

What firmware did you use/modify? Tinkergnome? Did you use DEFAULT_AXIS_STEPS_PER_UNIT = 456 for the extruder?

Just yesterday I saw the Titan used on a GO in the factory location for the drive and it printed flexible just fine. Did you try that first?

Hi lrodriguez

 

What firmware did you use/modify? Tinkergnome? Did you use DEFAULT_AXIS_STEPS_PER_UNIT =  456 for the extruder?

 

I am still on the stock firmware and did not change the settings.

For flexible such as Filaflex, ninjaflex and semiflex I increased the extrusion multiplier to 1.45 in Simplify3D. Works well !

Never tried Tinkergnome firmware yet.

Did not try this as I don't like the idea of bowden systems.

It is still a good idea for non flexible material though. I should give it a go for the flexible ones, I'll tell you what I think about it :)

Direct drive have their pros and cons :

- bowdens allows high speed and lightweights printhead

- direct drive allows better filament control, but are heavy

The best of both worlds would be the Flex3Drive (http://mutley3d.com/Flex3Drive-1/) combined with the E3D-Titan and some firmware tinkering.

I am keeping this solution for my custom designs, and will reveal it by the end of the year.

      • UltiMaker Cura 5.3 stable released
        In this stable release, Cura 5.3 achieves yet another huge leap forward in 3D printing thanks to material interlocking! As well as introducing an expanded recommended print settings menu and lots of print quality improvements. Not to mention, a whole bunch of new printer profiles for non-UltiMaker printers!

      • Here it is. The new UltiMaker S7
        The UltiMaker S7 is built on the success of the UltiMaker S5 and its design decisions were heavily based on feedback from customers.
         
         
        So what’s new?
        The obvious change is the S7’s height. It now includes an integrated Air Manager. This filters the exhaust air of every print and also improves build temperature stability. To further enclose the build chamber the S7 only has one magnetically latched door.
         
        The build stack has also been completely redesigned. A PEI-coated flexible steel build plate makes a big difference to productivity. Not only do you not need tools to pop a printed part off. But we also don’t recommend using or adhesion structures for UltiMaker materials (except PC, because...it’s PC). Along with that, 4 pins and 25 magnets make it easy to replace the flex plate perfectly – even with one hand.
         
        The re-engineered print head has an inductive sensor which reduces noise when probing the build plate. This effectively makes it much harder to not achieve a perfect first layer, improving overall print success. We also reversed the front fan direction (fewer plastic hairs, less maintenance), made the print core door magnets stronger, and add a sensor that helps avoid flooding.
         

         
        The UltiMaker S7 also includes quality of life improvements:
        Reliable bed tilt compensation (no more thumbscrews) 2.4 and 5 GHz Wi-Fi A 1080p camera (mounted higher for a better view) Compatibility with 280+ Marketplace materials Compatibility with S5 project files (no reslicing needed) And a whole lot more  
        Curious to see the S7 in action?
        We’re hosting a free tech demo on February 7.
        It will be live and you can ask any questions to our CTO, Miguel Calvo.

      • UltiMaker Cura Alpha 🎄 Tree Support Spotlight 🎄
        Are you a fan of tree support, but dislike the removal process and the amount of filament it uses? Then we would like to invite you to try this special release of UltiMaker Cura. Brought to you by our special community contributor @thomasrahm
         
        We generated a special version of Cura 5.2 called 5.3.0 Alpha + Xmas. The only changes we introduced compared to UltiMaker Cura 5.2.1 are those which are needed for the new supports. So keep in mind, this is not a sneak peek for Cura 5.3 (there are some really cool new features coming up) but a spotlight release highlighting this new version of tree supports.
