Better 3D Printer Filament Cooling Duct Improves Print Quality

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.

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.
