    Hi Guys,
    I'm curious if any of you have had this issue. Ive installed my Titan, and for the most part its working really well. The only problem I have is that my V6 is able to freely rotate inside the Titan enclosure. Theres slight wobble also which is showing vibrations on the prints.
    It doesn't show up terribly well in the picture but there is a texture from the vibration.

    Hi,

    My E3D is fixed well in combination with Filament Guide. Before inserting the filament guide the E3Dv6 is quite loose.
    To you feel a difference in the resistance of rotation when you inserting the filament guide?

    The filament guide is in place (1.75 mm version) and it still rotates. I guess I could put a small piece of rubber in the V6 groove before putting the front back on.

    Mine is loose too. I fixed by wrapping the heatsink's collet in PTFE tape.

    I melted some ninjaflex in the end. Works fine now.

    Is the rubber o ring fitted? and did you cut the tube to the correct length? it should be pushed in as far as it will go

    I have 2 Titans to convert both printers I built (one for me and one for a friend) to Titan/v6.
    The first one has a very tight fit and I need quite some force (even without the filament guide) to push it in. The second one has a real light fit and without the PC cover screwed on I can rotate the v6.

    Both are original E3D parts but bought at different times. It seems there is a slight variation in extruded plastic parts.
