he E3D-v6 has been redesigned from the ground up. E3D has invested a lot of time and used all of their experience to design E3D’s latest and greatest Hot End. This E3D v6 J-Head Hotend Extruder 1.75mm Filament 0.2mm Nozzle w/Fan Duct contains the same signature high-temperature performance for high-temp printing, as well as increased functionality for printing soft and flexible filaments. This kit contains the old thermistor, heater block, sleeving, cooling fan with holder.
Print the Widest Range of Materials Possible
Building on their signature high temperature performance that allows you to print high temperature materials E3D has 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 NinjaFlex, FlexPLA and FlexPolyester. This opens up a huge range of new opportunities for your printer.
High Temperature Performance
With no PEEK or PTFE in hot regions of the Hot End you can reach 300 C with the supplied thermistor. By swapping a thermistor for a thermocouple (may require additional electronics) you can reach over 400C.
The new Heater Block 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.
Reduced Bulk and Z-Height
E3D has focused on cutting as much bulk from the E3Dv6 as possible. This means an overall length of just 62mm and significant reductions in bulk in the X/Y dimensions by using the new injection moulded fan duct.
Easy No-Solder, No-Tape, No-Adhesive assembly and maintenance.
E3D has eliminated Kapton tape or any other adhesives from the assembly process of v6. The new thermistor simply clamps into place with a small screw, high 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.?
High Quality Printing
E3D has kept their acerb thermal transition that gives the high quality printing performance users have come to expect from E3D hotends. A acerb thermal break gives better control over filament output so you get more immediate start and stops when extruding as well as retracts that are more effective in combatting ooze. For the user this means sharper more accurate prints that have less stringing, oozing or blobs on the prints.
Adaptable To Suit Your Needs
E3D’s range of nozzle sizes gives you more opportunity to choose how you want to print. While the default 0.4mm nozzle gives great prints with a good balance of speed, ease and resolution we are offering a range of nozzles that have special geometries that are tailored to the specific needs of how you want to print. The shape of the tip of the nozzle is key to how the hotend extrudes and flattens a track of plastic. By matching the size of the tip of the nozzles to the width of track of plastic you are able to print with increased resolution in smaller nozzle sizes and with the larger nozzles the geometry has been customized so that you can easily lay down large layers for fast strong prints. Nozzles are easily and quickly changed out because of their hexagonal shape.
Easy Mounting and Community Support
E3D has kept the same 16 mm Groove mount dimensions from v5 to ensure that as much compatibility is maintained as possible with the extensive range of community designed mounts.
