E3D-v6: Smaller - Easier - Higher Performance.

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

Assembly guidelines for the v6 can be found here.

Print the Widest Range of Materials Possible.



Building on E3D's 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.

(PTFE Liner only present in 1.75mm version - 3mm Bowden has partial lining - 3mm Direct has no lining)


This above cutaways show the internals of all three HotEnds. Left to Right: 1.75mm Universal, 3mm Direct, 3mm Bowden.


High Temperature Peformance.



With no PEEK or PTFE in hot regions of the E3D V6 HotEnd you can reach 300C with the supplied thermistor. By swapping a thermistor for a thermocouple (may require additional electronics) you can reach over 400C. 

This not only allows you to print extremely high temperature materials like Polycarbonate and Nylons but also eliminates HotEnd meltdown failures associated with PEEK/PTFE designs. Although E3D's 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.

The 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 seconds, temperature control is responsive enough that you can keep the hotend within 0.5C of your set temperature or less with ease.

Best upgrade so far

Plenty of instructions online. The print quality is way better than my old Ceramic Ubi hotend, it doesn't even compare.

great quality prints

Purchased this to finish Christmas presents. Print quality is great compare to stock hex end. Had some issues with assembly but more my fault then anything. Would of been nice if instructions were provided but nothing YouTube couldn’t solve.
