Look no further for a complete extrusion system that just works; the Titan Aero is the ultimate all-in-one package of HotEnd and Extruder. It's easy to mount and more compact than the traditional V6 + Titan pairing—perfect for flexible materials.

Feed cog wearing through filiment

I installed the Titan Aero on my printer and am having an issue with the feed cog grinding up the filament. 1.75mm mirrored unit. Ive double checked the following;

Pinion flush or slightly below Drive gear

Minimal “backlash between gears to achieve smooth operation by hand

Extruder stepper set to extrude 100mm of filament when given proper G Code

Temp sensor set to Type 5 (marlin)

Screw 3 not overtightened

Retraction set to 1mm

Help greatly appreciated, I really need to get this machine working. Only abnormalities I found during assembly was in checking resistance on a 12 V 30W heating element I got slightly over 5 ohms. I on inspection I would suspect the notchy “budget” ball bearings will not last long in this high heat environment.

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Hi Dean,

If the filament is being ground this is usually a sign of the filament tension being set too low, You should rotate the thumb screw clockwise until the filament stops being ground and extrudes reliably, you will now if you have tightened it too much if the motor starts to stall/ make a clicking sound.
