Looking for a low cost reliable HotEnd? The Lite6 is our entry level HotEnd, perfect for new users printing filaments such as PLA and ABS. Some users prefer lite6 for solely-PLA printing.

Easy to use

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. Despite being an entry-level HotEnd, it maintains the great extrusion control that you would expect from an E3D product.

Great for Everyday Materials

The use of a PTFE liner creates a temperature limit of 240°C, so it’s not the HotEnd of choice for printing higher-performance engineering plastics like Nylon, Polycarbonate or Ultem (for those, go for the V6, Hemera or any of our all-metal Hot-Ends.. Lite6 has a slightly shorter effective melt-zone than V6, which does mean that print speeds are more modest, but still completely appropriate for all but the very fastest 3D printers on the market. If you do need to get more speed from your machine then you can, of course, upgrade to either Volcano or full V6 with ease.


The stainless steel body of Lite6 makes it incredibly robust and tolerant of accidents that new users inevitably encounter. If you accidentally crash your Lite6 into a print there is effectively zero chance of it breaking. 

The stainless steel parts are incredibly thermally sound and essentially impossible to damage with the supplied heater. This means that in the event of cooking your PTFE liner you can quickly and easily swap it out for a new one and return your Lite6 to full functionality.


We’ve re-used as many parts from V6 and the rest of the E3D ecosystem as possible. The beautiful polycarbonate fan duct, the proven 30mm ball-bearing cooling fan. Most importantly we’re using the same highly optimised nozzles and heater blocks to deliver great performance in the most important areas of Lite6.

  • Stainless steel heatsink

I finally bit the bullet and decided to upgrade my anycubic i3 mega to this hot end. It was a bit outside my technical comfort zone but with all the guides out there i muddled through. I've been putting it through its paces and so far i am nothing but impressed. At first i didn't like the idea of the bowden pressing against the nozzle but i soon realized the advantage to this system, when the tip of the bowden wears out all you have to do is replace the bowden instead of purchasing an all new hotend. I am a very satisfied customer and see no reason not to recommend this hotend as an alternative/upgrade for common material printing

Five stars. Spool3D's description was thorough and clear, so much so that I was confident this hot end would be the right one, this after having purchased several replacements based on thin descriptions that either did not fit or did not work. Delivery (Calgary to Chelsea PQ ) took about a week. My four year old Prusa mk2.5s now works better than new.

E3D lite6

Made the mistake of buying a clone v6 for my build. Heat creep galore. I wised up and bought this, and the printer has been printing flawlessly since. I only print pla and petg so the lite6 is an awesome affordable hotend.

Very impressed with this hotend!

WOW! Wish I could show a sample of my print going on now compared to my aging J-Head. It's fantastic and soooo finish is coming out so smooth! Thank you Spool3d for shipping so fast during this Pandemic!
