E3D-V6 HotEnd Full Kit – 1.75mm 12V/24v Universal (with Bowden add-on) for RepRap 3D Printer Extruder
We are now carrying E3D’s latest and greatest 3D printer hotend – the E3D-V6!
Capable of high-temperature printing and CNC machined to perfectionthese are arguably the best hotends out there! Here’s E3D’s rundown:
E3D-v6: Smaller – Easier – Higher Performance.
The E3D-v6 has been redesigned from the ground up. We have invested a lot of time and used all of our experience to design E3D’s latest and greatest HotEnd. If you would like to know more about the design process
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 adding increased 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 NinjaFlexFlexPLA 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 PTFE in hot regions of our HotEnd we can reach 260C with the supplied thermistor. By swapping a thermistor for a thermocouple (may require additional electronics) you can reach over 280C.
This not only allows you to print extremely high temperature materials like PP/ Polycarbonate and Nylons but also eliminates HotEnd meltdown failures associated . 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 secondstemperature control is responsive enough that you can keep the hotend within 0.5C of your set temperature or less with ease.
Reduced Bulk and Z-Height.
We’ve focused on cutting as much bulk from the E3Dv6 as possible. This means an overall length of just 72mm and significant reductions in bulk in the X/Y dimensions by using our new injection moulded fan duct.
Easy No-SolderNo-TapeNo-Adhesive assembly and maintenance.
We’ve eliminated Kapton tape or any other adhesives from the assembly process of v6. The new thermistor simply clamps into place with a small screwhigh temperature glass sleeving is used to insulate the thermistor legs. This makes installing or removing the thermistor a quick and clean process compared to previous methods involving fiddly kapton taping. No soldering is needed as we supply supply solder free ferrules for making heat-resistantquick and easy electrical connections to the thermistor legs. Most parts of the hotend simply screw togetherthe new fan duct simply clips into place and can be oriented in many different directions to suit your particular setup.
