    I just got my Titan Extruder installed with my Prometheus V2. I will put up some pics tomorrow, It is still running the first large plate of parts but the quality is outstanding. I modified a few parts to work with the Prometheus, Thank you KTMDirtFace. Here are the parts http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1768210. I have to say it is an easy installation and the difference over the Greg's Wade Extruder is pretty impressive. I did keep with the original Nema 17 for now but will be moving to a pancake next pay cycle (Got to keep the wife guessing). More to come.

    Nice work. The titan is really pushed towards using their V6 hotend, but as we know it works well with others. Just takes a bit of modification in mounting to make it happen. I have had mine working with both the V6 and the Hex hotend using direct mount and not bowden. I didn't even know about the Prometheus at the time, but its popularity is on the rise these days. Nice to see someone proving it works as well. I just got the updated hobb gear for my Titan. I need to look at putting it back into regular use.

    How did you get updated hobb gear? I don't have any problems with my original one though.

    Mine came with the hobb cut really narrow. I got one of the first batches. They later made the cut wider. It helps from an issue of the filament getting chewed up. Below is a pic of what the difference looks like. I just reported to E3D that I had the incorrect hobb cut and they sent me a new one right away.

    You're lucky. Personally, I would take their offer for a free replacement just in case. If nothing else you'll have an extra hobb gear.

    I should do the same. Except my Titan is still in the box.
