The E3D V6 Hot End: Smaller, Easier, High Performance

The E3D V6 is E3D's market-leading signature Hot End. Assembly guidelines for the v6 can be found here.

01. Print the Widest Possible Range of Materials
E3D's signature all-metal design allows you to reliably print high temperature materials, and they've added extra functionality with soft and flexible filaments. This opens up a huge range of new opportunities for your printer.

02. High Temperature Performance
The V6 can comfortably reach 285°C with the supplied thermistor. By swapping a thermistor for a thermocouple (may require additional electronics) or PT100 you can reach over 400°C. 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. The PTFE filament guide inside the V6 HotEnd is never subjected to high temperatures, so there is no risk of damage through overheating. For more information about the maximum temperature recommendation please visit this documentation page

03. Compact
E3D has focussed on cutting as much bulk from the E3D V6 as possible. This means an overall length of just 62mm, and low bulk in X/Y dimensions!

04. Easy to Use
E3D's new thermistor cartridge simply slides into place and is secured with a single screw. E3D uses high temperature glass sleeving to insulate the thermistor legs as well. This makes installing or removing the thermistor a quick and clean process compared to previous methods involving fiddly taping.

05. High Quality Printing
E3D has kept their sharp thermal transition that gives the high quality printing performance users have come to expect from E3D HotEnds. A sharp 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 combating ooze. This means sharper, more accurate prints that have less stringing, oozing or blobbing.

06. Adaptable
The V6 is a fully-integrated part of the E3D Ecosystem. E3D's range of nozzles and blocks gives you more opportunity to choose how you want to print. Choose from different filament materials to take your printing to the next level, and upgrade for ultra high-temperature printing!

07. Support
E3D has an active user base on many printer forums, including RepRap Forums, Google+, SeeMeCNC, Solidoodle, Ultimaker and many others. E3D also maintains their own E3D Forum where many people share and collaborate on clever solutions for mounting on various printers. E3D values the community that use their product and look to support development wherever possible. E3D is always there to support you in using your HotEnd - whether that means giving advice on public forums, or private email support by E3D's contact system.

Started to believe this was the worst upgrade ever.

So, I have now gone through 2 complete ED3 hot ends... The first one stated to jam up, clogs, filament being chewed up. I then tried to increase temperature, but it would jam or cause the hobb bolt to skip and chew up the filament Than I added and filament oiler still the same. During one clog I broke the center tube. Me Bad... So, I ordered a new complete hotend, and still no changes. I then changed out the hobb bolt hoping that this would give the pressure need, Still no luck, going back to a standard Hex Hottend.

Works Great so Far

Did a lot of research before upgrading my stock hotend on my Tarantula. Really happy with this hotend.

Great hotend

Everything you need is in the package, It is a great hotend and i have now got 2 printers using them. Upgraded my Ender 3 as i wanted an all metal hotend to print nylon, and this was only marginally more money than the micro swiss drop in replacement.

Fast shipping with quality packaging

E3d working as expected from a top of the line product. The shipping was fast and well packaged.

the real deal

Bought to replace a cheap chinese knock off, never going back. Came with everything needed and give really good results. Did not get a single jam so far, cheap copy always jam and ruin print.

It fits like a gloive

I bought a Prusa I3 MK2S printer this year. I have it on almost 24 hours a day printing all different stuff for me and a little girl pus a few neighbours. My printer started to have a few blog of plastic coming out from nowhere, while I check if all was tight between the heated block and the cooler were the plastic was leaking I broke the tube, so I order a piece the full hot end system, it fitted with no problem. The only small thing is instead of a 12V 40W heater I got a 12V 30W one, it works great but for the extruder to reach is temperature it take a bit longer to reach. I am very satisfied with it and my machine produce nice 3d printing
