The Cyclops+ hotend features a unique two into one filament path that blends two separate inputs into a single heater block and extrudes them from a single nozzle. The ecosystem supports either air or liquid cooling, and this kit includes the air cooled heatsink. One of the major calibration pains with dual extrusion is configuring nozzle offset and the Cyclops makes it easy thanks to a single, shared nozzle for both.
Two materials, one nozzle
The E3D Dual Extrusion + ecosystem features only two heater blocks; one for air cooling and one for liquid. Both utilize heat breaks that secure via set screws and both the Cyclops and Chimera heaters are compatible with either cooling system. With either heatsink installed, it's a quick swap between Cyclops and Chimera.
From the mainstay v6 to the diabolical quad-extrusion Kraken, E3D has a hotend to suit your needs. The v6 is the king of single extrusion with a wide variety of nozzle sizes and materials available, including the Volcano system. The Cyclops+ brings dual extrusion with a single, shared nozzle to maintain easier leveling and calibration. To mix and match nozzle sizes and types the Chimera+ uses two v6 or Volcano hotends together. Easily run a 0.4mm nozzle for fine detail perimeters and a 0.8 for fast and strong supports or mix brass for low temp and Nozzle X for high temperature materials. Kraken is the ultimate in multi-extrusion with four individual nozzles. Setting up Kraken is no simple task, but for the maker/hacker looking for the ultimate test it's truly the top of the mountain. Check out this graphic for a visual overview of all these options.
