Contains all you'll need to upgrade your standard E3Dv6 hotend to the new Sock & Thermistor Cartridge Block. Read all about them in the Blog Post.

  • Silicone Sock V6 (x3)
  • The new cartridge thermistor
  • Thermistor cable (1 meter)
  • Fixings

Silicone Socks:

  • These socks will keep your nozzle clean and free of burnt on blackened plastic. They don’t just keep the nozzle clean, but also keep heat inside the hotend, and off the print.
  • Made of a heat-resistant, non-stick silicone material that will repel build-up of molten plastic. This really helps with sticky materials like Co-Polyesters and filled materials that like to build up on nozzles.
  • These also offer a huge boost in temperature stability, particularly if you use high airflow cooling around the nozzle to cool the print. The additional cooling combined with reduced radiation of heat from the block and nozzle to the print really boost the ability to print great overhangs and bridges, all while keeping the hotend temperature extremely stable.
  • The covers simply push onto the front of the hotend with no disassembly - they will be a tight fit when first pushed on cold. When hot the silicone will expand to the correct size to fit the hotend snugly. The elastic material will fit all nozzle sizes in the range from 0.25mm to 0.80mm
  • Socks don't last forever. Depending on what materials you print and how much abuse they get they eventually wear away at the nozzle tip. Even with sticky abrasive materials and a bit of abuse they should easily last 100+ print hours. With less sticky materials like ABS and gentler use you can get almost infinite life. Your mileage may vary.

It worked well in a Prusa mk3s.

Increased Temperature Stability

Bought two, one for a genuine E3D on my i3 clone, the other for the clone on my MP Select. Both fit great and I had no issues with the install. Biggest difference was on my i3. I'd previously been using no part fan, primarily ABS on that printer, and decided to add a fang to go PLA/PETG. Ended up having issues with thermal runaway when the fan kicked prior to installing the new block and sock. Since installing it I've had zero problems. As a bonus the sock helps with PETG curl as well. Highly recommend these

Better than the Epcos 100K Thermistor

This is the original new cartridge style E3d thermistor which is an upgrade from the common Epcos 100k thermistor i used to have on my E3d. The 100k worked fine but the machined hole on the e3d heat block is designed for E3d own Semitec 100k thermistor. The difference is the Semitic has a smaller glass bulb that will fit nicely in the small hole on the heat block. The common 100k thermistor will go through the hole but will be a bit protruding which will prevent the fastener screw from sitting flush on the block. I didnt want to use a high temperature paste to hold the thermistor permanently in because i will need to break the thermistor if i wanted to remove it because of the hardened paste. I fastened the screw on it but the thermistor bulb didnt have a complete surface area contact with the block which kept giving me a "Thermal Runway Error" message on Marlin. Long story short, get yourself one of these new E3d heat blocks with the easy remove cartridge thermistor for better accuracy and nicer finish.
