    Hi all

    i am quite confused of the manual to assembly my bigbox 1.1 pro i just got.

    One thing im almost sure that it is a titan. But during assembly of the carriage i got confused really, because of the many different carriages, only found a hybrid dual carriage. Is this the default now for this printer ?
    Or did i get wrong parts ?

    Also again the assembly of the extruder i have no clue what i should have gotten and what i have to put together.

    Do i have a
    Hybrid Titan Extruder (Direct) or
    Hybrid Titan Extruder (Bowden)
    and what is the difference ? And what do i have to assemble when going through the titan assembly document ?

    I only can go by the parts i am able to find in my bags, but have no clue if it is actually the right stuff.
    Which makes it really hard.

    You have the Hybrid X carriage, with a Titan Direct extruder.

    Where necessary, follow the Pro option for the hybrid X carriage.

    If the Black filament guide you mean is the one in the Titan then yes you do need it for 1.75mm filament (white one for 3mm filament)

    The Titan assembly guide is here:

    I have the same version printer and posted a build thread but I didn't post much on the extruder. If you need me to, I can post some photos of my Titan/hotend.

    Good luck!

    The note says not to attach the bowden adapter collet or the PTFE tube and yes, that is correct.

    So this is really correct to not attach those. But why is this so ? Makes no sense to not install filament guiding.

    You are confusing two parts, the bowden adapter collet is not used on a direct Titan, the correct size filament guide should be fitted and nowhere does it suggest otherwise...

    Yeah thats a big problem of the manuals, the description of specific parts is missing completely.
    So i have still no clue which part is meant as bowden adapter collet, do you have a photo of it maybe ? One thing for sure now it is not that black filament guide.

    The collet is the small black piece inside the bronze ring inset into the Bowden adapter - see this picture. The left hand one has the collet inserted, in the right hand one it has been removed.
