    while i wait for my dual e3d titans to arrive. I have been printing all of the parts with my formlabs form2. black resin no supports. "included cat hair for surface reference" ;)

    Pretty nice.

    How tough are resin parts?

    And heat resistance?

    I could never get a definitive list of parts needed for the Titan upgrade, did you get a list or work it out yourself?

    Blackresin is pretty strong. Heat is not an issue. Formlabs sells "tough resin". I was going to seal the parts but it is not needed.

    I sure hope so. If not I'll be printing more.

    Works great for master molds. Pricey materials but worth it.

    Jinx appreciates the love. All parts printed at normal 0.1mm layer height. form2 can go down to 0.025mm. I'm looking into having my next bigbox metal cut and all parts be 3d printed in resin at 0.025mm

    It depends on what you're upgrading from and too. If you can be specific, I can probably point the way. Maybe we could even share some build plates in the forum for specific upgrades.

    Damn ... those prints looks awesome.

    OK. So to go to from a 1.0 stock dual to a 1.1 hybrid is exactly what I did (well still in the middle of). You will need:

    e3d extruder mount (but probably better to go straight for Alex's raised mount
    http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1515488

    the x-carriage (again consider Alex's carriage as it has some raised groove-locks)
    http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1574170

    you'll need two clamps, though you could re-use the front clamp from 1.0 I think. The back clamp is definitely new though

    you might consider the new wiper - but can do that separately

    you'll then need the IR sensor mount and the part cooling fan mount
    you may also want to print volcano versions of these - or wait until you need them - or print them instead of the standard ones
    these are the only two HT parts

    there's no printed part required to connect the motor and Titan to the back of the machine - the motor sits one side, the Titan the other, and screws are all you need

    I think that covers it.

    Okay, so I just have to say that those prints look sick. It is amazing how much detail there is that was lost with the FDM (at least at the lower resolutions)
