    Hi All,

    I've had my Titan Aero for about 2 months and things have been great. Up until now everything has been peachy with the hot end and extruder. I have a 1.75 mm 12v with smaller extruder motor option. But a few times in the past, and recently this morning at hour 4 of a long 14 hour print, i notice the gear on the motor shaft skips/slips on the plastic flywheel gear and has a clear audible chatter. Tension on the filament spring does nothing to change this, and the first 3.8 hours everything was fine too. I can visible see the metal gear slipping on the plastic one. Had to stop the print because it was not extruding any filament. I don't think it's a clog in the nozzel because i can easily push filament through with my hand and from the LCD menu commands too. What could be the cause? Are there any metal gear upgrades for this piece? Any one else have this issue before?

    Hi
    I have the exact same issue. My Titan was performing perfectly and then all of a sudden the same issue your having arises. Tried swapping motor, driver as well as print settings and still the same. Have you resolved your issue?

    Mine did this out of the box..... After looking around here the top 4 threads are about this problem. I am contacting the vendor now.

    Thats not too good they seem to have released a product with no QC, I have now had the Thermo go as well so not happy with that probably because I have taken it apart and put it back together so many times.

    Not happy either worst part is I am in Aus thus have to work through a reseller, I am going to have a bit more of a play but it may just be junked I have a number of people following on what I am doing and some are saying now that I have had problems they may as well just go for a china version at 10% of the price thinking I may just order one just in case.

    I feel he issue is from the mount and it will be an ongoing issue shame they don't supply or make a metal mount.

    I've had my Titan Aero for about two weeks now and am seeing slippage as well.

    Comments, E3D?

    Any chance this is related to the misalignment issue reported in another thread here?
