    Aero and Titan. Again half way through a print and it all stops working. Another bearing gone. Bits everywhere.

    Now I have to clean and strip the whole machine to make sure none of the bearings have dropped down onto my board :(

    I seem to be changing bearings more that filament now.

    Other then the bearing gate issue that affected units sold between February 2017 and January 2018, there should not be a reason for bearings to be treated as a consumable item, if you are continuously damaging the bearings then it is most likely a case of over tightening the screws on the heatsink.

    In that case email suport@e3d-online.com with some images of the bearings along with the order number, we will be able to arrange a replacement set of bearings to be sent out to you.
