Hotends have the new heater block and thermistor cartridge introduced in June 2016.

Assembly guidelines for Lite6 can be found here.

Introduction

 

 

Not everybody needs the all-metal high-temperature performance of an E3D-v6. There exists a need for a hotend that is reliable, and puts out great prints, but meets the budget of those who are just getting started in 3D printing.

Lite6 is E3D's answer to that need. By adopting a PTFE lined, “Mostly Metal” design we’re able to meet what we think is a really awesome price point, for a fully inclusive kit with electronics. That’s a lower price than any other genuine hotend on the market and cheaper than many clones.

Lite6 does not supersede v6 - more compliments it, think of Lite6 as v6’s little brother. It’s a lower cost hotend, with a more modest specification, but still a great option for beginners and those on a budget.

Aimed at printing everyday materials.

Lite6 cannot offer the same high-temperature performance as E3D-v6, which means that you can’t print higher-performance engineering plastics like Nylon, Polycarbonate, and ColorFabb Carbon-Fiber XT. The PTFE liner in Lite6 means that there is a temperature limit of 240C. With all of the above said, Lite6 is aimed at the more standard materials, such as ABS and PLA, and it really does produce beautiful looking prints with outstanding reliability. The full length PTFE liner also means you get great performance with flexible materials like NinjaFlex.

A solid kit for "lower" temp filament.

5/5
This is a good upgrade if you don't plan on printing filament at super high (over 250C) temperatures. Why spend more on the full E3D v6 kit it you never plan to use that type of filament. Or if you have two printers, do what I did, one is setup with the E3D v6 and one with this kit, the E3D lite. The print quality seems comparable between the two with PLA and PETG so far. As the cooler is the exact same size of the E3D v6 you likely can find and print a mount and cooling that works with your 3d printer.

Great hot end for the beginner

5/5
I've never owned this type of hot end before, but what a difference compared to the standard one that came with my machine. The print quality is very good in comparison to my stock hot end combination. Easy to change filament and no leaks. Great product! Thanks to the guys at the store for all their help.

Great Kit!

5/5
This hotend is great no more filament coming out of places it shouldn't be, just the nozzle.
