The v6 HotEnd Full Kit 3.00mm Bowden from E3D has been redesigned for your convenience from the ground up! This new hot end contains the same signature high temperature performance for high-temp printing, as well as increased functionality for printing soft and flexible filaments.
Our inventory of this kit has not transitioned to the new cartridge-type format for temperature sensors. This kit contains the old thermistor, heater block, sleeving, etc.
The v6 HotEnd allows you to print a wide variety of materials, from soft and flexible to sturdy and strong. This is possible due to the PTFE (Polytetrafluoroethylene) 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. This technology opens new doors for your 3D printing aspirations.
With High Temperature Performance, you can print with high-temp materials like Polycarbonate and Nylon - this also eliminates HotEnd meltdown failures that are common with PTFE designs. Even though the v6 has a PTFE liner inside the hotend the liner is never subjected to high temperatures so there is no risk of damaging the liner through overheating. Basically, this design is really in-tune with all the elements, so your prints will come out crisp and accurate.
The v6 has cut back on a bunch of bulk. This clean-cut version's overall length is only 62mm, and there are significant reductions in the X/Y dimensions by using the new injection moulded fan duct.
Are you eager to start printing right away? Good. So are we - and that's why here at MatterHackers we praise the v6 HotEnd. No adhesives, Kapton tape, or soldering is needed to get started. The new v6 simply locks into place with a little screw, high-temp glass sleeving is used to insulate the thermistor legs. This makes installing the hotend (as well as removing) a quick and smooth process compared to earlier methods involving various adhesives.The parts of the hotend just screw together, and the fan duct naturally clips in - this can be manipulated in different ways to suit your setup preference.
Check out that accuracy!
The v6 has kept its vivd thermal transition that promotes high quality printing - this is a standard requirement with all E3D accessories and hotends. A sharp thermal break gives excellent control over material output, which provides more precise starts and stops during your extrusion. Essentially, as a printing aficionado, this means you will have a more authentic and keen print.
Everyone likes to have different options to fuel their creative fire. Well, another reason why the v6 HotEnd is at the head of its class is because it has multiple nozzle sizes to choose from, thus your printing dreams are limitless. The default nozzle is 0.4mm, which produces fantastic prints with a great level of speed, ease, and resolution. Collecting a plethora of nozzle sizes increases your ability explore and experiment with different filaments and extrusion settings.
The printing options are endless with mulitple nozzles!
