E3D Titan / v6 Aero Upgrade

Post by LePaul » June 18th, 2017, 11:02 pm

What a long evening trying to sort this out!

Bought the Aero Upgrade and pretty much expected some documentation on what to do. Nothing. Went to their Wiki and the steps are all messed up. But I think despite the mess, I got it all together correctly

This will go into my FT-5, which I'm still putting together. My first 1.75 mm filament user and a pancake motor as well.

Looks good, I'm also happy with mine, less wobble in the head because it is a lot shorter.

Be careful with the extra small bearing you had to insert into the alu part, I already lost mine (don't ask), as it is not tight in the hole, luckily the old plastic cover had exact the same bearing :)

The bearing snapped right in.

The build process was really maddening. I had to screw/unscrew the nozzle many times to get the print head aligned right. That's always a fun game!

I found if I focused on getting the Aero and Titan together, then it was a matter of aligning with the steel gear on the pancake motor. Once I had three long screws all the way through the Aero/Titan and through the 713maker mount, then it was the gentle alignment to the pancake. It's really hard to describe. Much like doing a Rubik's cube. At the end, you're happy the advance knob moves the pancake shaft. I'm not sure how "freely" that should move, so I backed off the long screw that goes through it a tiny bit. The real test will be once powered up.

Be sure to print this and insert it onto the lever hole (where the pancake motor shaft pokes out)

Takes about 2 minutes and makes for a flush finish against the Aero
