All the best V6 parts carefully curated to make the V6 Gold. More than just its shiny appearance, this HotEnd is built for outstanding performance with all filaments and optimised for high-temperature and abrasive 3D printing.

‘Gold’ Heat Sink

The V6 is one of our proudest achievements, we chose to celebrate the HotEnd that started the modular E3D ecosystem with a gold edition. The sink is anodised - not 24 carat - but still bling.

Heater Block

In this instance, we’ve switched out the aluminium for a plated copper block, increasing heat transfer to the filament, and reducing the chance of filament remnants sticking to it. The non-stick properties of the plated copper blocks are beneficial in high-temperature printing situations where the silicone socks have a shorter lifespan.


The standard brass nozzle has been upgraded to hardened steel. Whereas brass nozzles can be worn down and even ruined by abrasive materials, hardened steel will last a lifetime. If you print with carbon fibre, wood/ metal filled filaments, or even glow in the dark filaments then these nozzles are a must.

Heater Cartridge

The heater cartridges have been upgraded to the high precision, quick release heater cartridges. They feature spot-on physical dimensions for greater surface area contact and improved electrical specifications for more stable performance. These quick release connectors allow for easier maintenance and upgradeability, allowing the HotEnd to be removed without having to re-route the entire wiring loom.

Fan Duct 

A clear, injection moulded plastic fan duct showcases the golden heatsink at its very best.

PTFE guide 

We’ve upgraded the standard PTFE guide to high tolerance Capricorn PTFE Tubing. Capricorn bowden tubing has a tighter diameter and much-reduced friction, providing smoother, more accurate extrusion.

Replacement kit for my MK3S

Perfect fit. Bought the 40w cartridge heater as well to use instead of the 30W included in kit. Lots of instructions and videos online with step-by-step procedures. First time doing this myself and it was straight forward.

MK3S incompatibility

If you use this kit with a MK3S you'll need to slow it down, the heater cartridge runs 10W less than the factory one and it will cause all sorts of problems with the default settings in Prusa slicer.

A pleasure to use.

This is my first hotend that I have ever used personally and I bought it with the intent of using nylons and abrasive plastics. The thermistor is now being used in my heatbed as I upgraded to a PT100 on this hotend. I also upgraded to a Titanium heat break and these upgrades have made this hotend an absolute pleasure to use. I was using PLA printed components on the printer to start with and the groove mount didn't even get warm wile printing at 230C. The capricorn tubing is working beautifully with the Titan extruder I also bought. Also GOLD.
