NEW E3D V6 VERSION: Smaller - Easier - Higher Performance
Print the Widest Range of Materials Possible.
Building on our signature high temperature performance that allows you to print high temperature materials we've now focussed on addingincreased functionality with soft and flexible filaments. By providing a PTFE liner tube through the hotend that you can extend into your extruder this gives the ability to add the confinement and constraint needed to make excellent quality prints with flexible filaments like NinjaFlex, FlexPLA and FlexPolyester. This opens up a huge range of new opportunities for your printer.
(PTFE Liner only present in 1.75mm version - 3mm Bowden has partial lining - 3mm Direct has no lining)
High Temperature Peformance.
With no PEEK or PTFE in hot regions of our HotEnd we can reach 300C with the supplied thermistor. By swapping a thermistor for a thermocouple (may require additional electronics) you can reach over 400C.
This not only allows you to print extremely high temperature materials like Polycarbonate and Nylons but also eliminates HotEnd meltdownfailures associated with PEEK/PTFE designs. Although our latest v6 hotend has a PTFE liner inside the hotend this liner is never subjected to high temperatures so there is no risk of damaging the liner through overheating.
Our new HeaterBlock gives the fastest heat up times and the most responsive temperature control by clamping around the cartridge for maximum thermal contact. The new thermistor placement means you get the most accurate temperature readings with the fastest response. What this means for you the user is that you can go from 20C to 200C in just 65 seconds, temperature control is responsive enough that you can keep the hotend within 0.5C of your set temperature or less with ease.

Our stainless-steel insulated actively cooled all-metal HotEnd Contains no heated PEEK or PTFE. The all-metal design will withstand temperatures well in excess of that ever required for thermoplastic extrusion.
Version 5 of this HotEnd is more easily assembled and remains directly compatible with standard 16mm extruder bodies and should fit most extruder bodies accordingly.
The CNC-machined parts not only assure quality, accuracy and strength but are also aesthetically pleasing.
All heated parts are either steel, aluminium or brass. By using a stainless steel heat-break and active cooling we have reduced the distance in which the plastic transitions from ambient temperatures to extrusion temperatures to 2mm. This extremely short transition from cold filament to molten plastic provides highly precise extrusion with little extrusion force and reduced jamming.
The supplied thermistor has a maximum temperature of 300ºC and is compatible with most 3D printing systems, however the hotend has been tested to beyond 400ºC using a thermocouple. You can find thermocouples and associated electronics in the electronics section of our store.
