E3D Titan mount for Ultimaker 2

Recommended Posts

(Pour les français, c'est ici : https://ultimaker.com/en/community/21313-support-e3d-titan-pour-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

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.


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?

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.

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
