Updated E3D Titan Aero Toolhead for Taz now available.

Following on the success of our toolhead based on the E3D Titan Aero extruder and hotend for the Taz that prints both solid and flexible filaments in either 3mm or 1.75mm, we have updated and released a new version!

Upgrades include:

  • Lighter half height stepper motor increases print accuracy by reducing toolhead mass
  • Revised filament cooling duct with outlets on the front, back, left, and right tuned for even surrounding filament cooling
  • Updated mount increases stiffness and accessibility
  • Compatible with Taz 5 and 6 (and also prior Tazs with a few updates)

Bought the prior version and want to upgrade? Sure! we have several options (coming soon), listed on the E3D Titan Aero Toolhead product page.
