Titan Aero MakerSlide mashup

This is a “simple as I could make it” mounting bracket for E3D’s Titan Aero to a Makerslide carriage plate. It is made from 2″ aluminum angle iron (2″ x 2″ x 0.125″ x 93 mm long). It was made using a drill press, table saw and an inexpensive compound slide milling table. It probably could be reproduced with a drill motor and hack saw.

The goal was to make it as rigid as possible while keeping the weight down. So far it’s been tested using ABS, the original NinjaFlex and PETG. All have printed well thanks to the Titan Aero. Pretty happy with the purchase so far. Note: no affiliation with E3D, just glad quality parts are being developed and sold for open source printers.

Here’s a photo of the completed bracket:


And a dimensional drawing in case someone would like to reproduce it::

The Makerslice Wheel Carriage also requires some modification (or some shims between the two brackets) to create clearance for the extruder’s gear. Here’s the end result of what worked in this instance:

Once the brackets are complete, they were bolted together and the Titan Aero assembly instructions were followed to complete the project.

Here’s a short video of the setup printing a calibration model in ABS:
