Get Tough, Reliable Extrusion
Our Tough Extruder is a geared and guided extruder to ensure that your filament feeds accurately and smoothly. This extruder is also great for most TPE/TPU filaments thanks to its tight filament path that doesn’t leave large gaps for the flexible filament to escape. It is our go-to for a solid extruder upgrade for our printers.
This is a tried and true design that is made using the “Titan” Open Source design under the GPL V3 license. These are made by the same factory as TriangleLabs products, with additional QC done by the TH3D team before they go out to our customers. This extruder is NOT made by E3D, but is compatible will all “Titan” installations and mounts.

Firmware update or flipping motor wiring around are usually required to reverse motor direction. Geared extruders typically require the motor direction to be reversed on machines that have feed gears that mount directly to the stepper motor shaft.
Recommend Esteps: 410 Steps/mm for most machines
Supported in the TH3D Unified Firmware Packs
Made using the “Titan” Open Source Design under GPL V3 – Engineering & License Files
Works with *most* Stock Stepper Motor and stock boards.
Some Creality machines are now shipping with press-fit extruder gears. See here for removal tips: Creality Press-Fit Extruder Gear Removal – TH3D Studio LLC
If your extruder shaft is not at least 18mm in length then you will need to upgrade it. Our Pancake Stepper is a great option to go with this extruder. See our article here about identifying the motor you have: Creality Extruder Motor Shaft Lengths – TH3D Studio LLC
This is for 1.75mm Filament ONLY
Tension Adjustment Note
If you are using your own firmware invert the E direction and we recommend starting with 410 steps/mm and stick with 1/16 stepping on the driver if you have a selectable driver (double the steps/mm if using a 0.9 degree motor, stock printer motors are 1.8 degree).
