    Hi,

    Judging by the size of the PTFE Tubing of 2mm, could we not use the 3mm filament? Because we would like to have larger filaments option that we could purchase from the website.

    Thanks

    If you can fit 3mm filament in a 2mm ID PTFE tube please let me know. ;)

    I was trying to see if we can get a 3mm filament PTFE tube that could be inserted instead o_O

    Ah. That's another question indeed :p

    It is posible, but you'll have to change quite a bit. The extruder has to be able to push 3mm filament. If you got the old titan then you should modify the handle together with the PTFE tube holder.
    Also you have to install a 3mm V6 in stead of the 1.75mm version...

    Hmm, I just recently purchased my Bigbox dual, and received it 2 weeks ago. Does this mean i got the new Titan?

    ----------------------


    Also, is it easy to make the modification, because I make custom filaments of about Dia 2.6 mm, and I really cant change this process of manufacturing.

    The Titan comes with a white and black PTFE guide so this is only as hard as changing on for the other. About the handle I'm not sure as I only print in 1.75mm

    Hmm, sorry, what do you mean by handle? Like where is this handle located?

    By handle I mean the piece of plastic you pull back when changing filament...
