While printing filament cooling ducts for our E3D Titan Aero toolheads, I noticed that some ducts had consistently poorer print quality on the overhangs of some corners, while others had even performance on all corner overhangs, even when printing with the same printer and filament roll. Keith pointed out that I had switched toolheads between stock and one of our upgraded E3D Titan Aero toolheads with the surround filament cooling ducts. I hadn’t expected the more even cooling to make that much of a difference, but it indeed does.
This beautiful vase was 3D printed in Translucent Turquoise 3mm Chroma Strand Labs Inova-1800 co-polyester filament from Benito Sanducci’s Gosper Fractal Vase design.
Sale? Yes! Turquoise and Turquoise 2 (a darker “emerald” color) Inova-1800 3mm 3D printer filament are a special limited edition on sale for only $39/kg!
Preview our upcoming E3D Titan Aero + Volcano toolhead for the Taz 3D Printer.
The Volcano hotend has nozzle diameters of up to 1.2mm which makes for very fast, very strong prints.
Available in 3mm and 1.75mm filament diameters, and with optional wear resistant and hardened nozzles and hobs for printing abrasive filaments.

www.itworks3d.com will be releasing the E3D Titan Aero toolheads for LulzBot Mini very soon!
The E3D Titan Aero allows you to print both solid and flexible filaments without changing toolheads.
Upgrade to hardened parts, and you can also print abrasive filaments like Proto Pasta Carbon Fiber PLA
Check out this video of a test print with the 1.75mm filament version:
Keith wanted to print 1.75mm filament on his LulzBot TAZ 6, so he picked up one of our 1.75mm hexagon hotend kits
He thought black ABS would be too plain for the printed parts, so when he saw the fabulous new deep purple “grape” colored High Performance ABS from Chroma Strand Labs, he knew it was just the ticket for his cool new custom toolhead! You can find the models for the toolhead parts on Thingiverse and LulzBot’s website.
What would you like to print in this great new Purple color?
We’ve had a great time working with Shawn and Cassy of Sparkfun Electronics on their video series about how to build your own 1lb 3D printed “Plastic Ant” class combat robot for the upcoming Sparkfun AVC Oct 14th and 15th at the Denver Maker Faire!
The complete series is below. Here’s the Plastic Ant Combat Robot Class Rules, and our shared doc with helpful links to shop for plastic ant parts. We hope to see you at AVC!
