    Recently moved to a Titan extruder, and have been running it most of the weekend.

    I've noticed an orange/rust colored powder accumulating on the large gear and around the edges of the hobbed bolt.

    See below (Picture is accidentally sideways, should be rotated 90 CW)

    Bearing failure in the Titan lid, best to ask your supplier for a replacement.

    Seems this issue is occuring quite often currently - maybe a faulty bearing batch that E3D got?
