    NOTE: E3D now have an all in one kit available for pre-order - http://e3d-online.com/bigbox-titan-upgrade-pro-to-dual

    I thought it might be useful to create a thread for V1 Pro owners looking to upgrade to a dual (1 direct, 1 bowden) set up with the new shiny Titans.

    For the Volcano upgrade I'm assuming you already have a Pro with Jet pack and that you can't remove the PT100 from your heater blocks once they're in (I can't, maybe I did the screw up too tight originally?)



    Hybrid dual upgrade parts
    • 1 x v6 HotEnd Full Kit - 1.75mm Universal (Direct) (24v)
    • 1 x V6 PT100 Total Upgrade Kit
    • 1 x Titan Extruder
      • Titan Extras: Motor: Nema17 40N - ..
      • Titan Extras: 1.75mm Bowden Adapte..
    • 1 x Titan Extruder (no extras)
    • 10 x PTFE Bowden Tubing (100mm) (1.75mm Filament)
    • 1 x A4988 Stepper Driver with Heatsink
    • 15 x GT2 Belt (6mm) (per 100mm)
    • 2 x O-rings (not available separately via e3ds website?)

    Volcano upgrade
    • 2 x PT100 Temperature Sensor
    • 1 x Volcano Heater Block for PT100
    • 1 x Volcano Extra Nozzle - 1.75mm x 0.80mm

    Additional spool carrier. I had an extra acrylic piece in my box that joins the two lower spool carrier parts, hopefully other Pro users do too. These parts don't seem to be available on e3ds store.
    • 5 x 634ZZ Bearings
    • 2 x 325mmx8mm Stainless Steel Rod
    Have I forgotten/misinterpreted anything?

    Thanks

    Alex

    1.5m GT2 if you've already cut it for the V1.

    Looks good to me. I know Filastruder will take the heater block and thermistor out of the v6 kit and credit accordingly, E3D likely would as well. Saves $25 on parts that are unlikely to be used.

    Here's a fun fact I discovered when I ordered a spare pt100 and heater for my volcano - they don't come as standard with cables long enough to reach the bigbox rumba.

    I think the idea is that you make an extension/plus yourself to that you do not need to always rewire. Once stable, i cut all wires in my (built) printers and use cables and connectors used inside PC's to have easy swappable heads.

    I can't remember where, maybe Josh's post, but he said if you put an order note that you want the long cables they'll give you the long cables for the BB as opposed to regular.

    It might be worth mentioning that on the item description for the items or have a reminder at the checkout stage. It's not a big deal as I plan to put them into molex plugs anyway.

    I agree I put a microfit connector on the cord to the board when swapped my pt100 quicker and easier then running a whole new cable. On a side note the wires in that cable are very delicate not a fan of them.. So be very careful, I actually stripped then with just my finger nails they are so fragile. Then I renforced them when a few layers of shrink wrap so hopefully they remain unstrained. The last layer of shrink wrap goes part way over the back of the connector.
