  1. JMKIVB

    J-Head Mk IV-B Hot End for 3mm filament

    J-Head Mk IV-B Hot End .35 Nozzle for 3mm filament 

    This hot-end is a combination of ideas from other nozzle designs combined with a goal to reduce the number of custom machined parts to a bare minimum.  The J-Head Mk IV-B has been proven to print reliably with both ABS and PLA.  (PLA will require a small fan to provide air-flow through the cooling vents milled in the sides of the nozzle holder.)

    This hot-end easily interfaces with the most popular RepRap extruders, including Wade's Extuder, Greg Frost's Hinged Accessible Extruder, etc.


    Quantities over 5 pieces will come unassembled.

  2. E3D Cyclops+ (12v, Air Cooled)

    E3D Cyclops+ (12v, Air Cooled)

    $123.95

    Still dual extrusion in a tiny package; now with new compatibility and features. These beasts have evolved. Experience the multi-extrusion possibilities of Cyclops+. Multi-Extrusion Choose the Cyclops+ for two-filament, one-nozzle. With a hot side designed to switch seamlessly between inputs, Cyclops+ never leaves an idle nozzle. Ecosystem Compatibility Cyclops+ fit our standard fans, thermistors and heater cartridges. Cyclops+ is now compatible with cartridge-style heaters and thermistors, opening the door to PT100s and thermocouples. Unique Cyclops Hotside The Cyclops heater block has been completely reworked, improving performance and making it more adaptable. We’ve removed all unnecessary material, lowering the thermal mass and reducing heat-up times. By changing the outer architecture of the block, we’ve also reduced the amount of heat radiating down from the block onto the print. This makes it easier to print small, complex parts without the need for a silicone sock. The distance between the filament paths is 2mm larger compared to the old-style Cyclops. This makes Cyclops+ compatible with the Kraken, for those looking to experiment. Learn More

  4. Lite6 Full Kit - 1.75mm Universal (with Bowden add-on)

    Lite6 Full Kit - 1.75mm Universal (with Bowden add-on)

    $37.95

    Introduction

    We know that not everybody needs the all-metal high-temperature performance of an E3D-v6. We’ve come to realise that there exists a need for a hotend that is reliable, and puts out great prints, but meets the budget of those who are just getting started in 3D printing.

    $35.50!

    Lite6 is our answer to that need. By adopting a PTFE lined, “Mostly Metal” design we’re able to meet what we think is a really awesome price point of $35.50, for a fully inclusive kit with electronics*. That’s a lower price than any other genuine hotend on the market and cheaper than many clones.


    Lite6 Assembled

    Lite6 does not supersede v6 - more compliments it, 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. Read on to find out the key differences and features.


    Features:

    Aimed at printing everyday materials.

    Lite6 cannot offer the same high-temperature performance as E3D-v6, which means that you can’t print higher-performance engineering plastics like Nylon, Polycarbonate, and ColorFabb Carbon-Fiber XT. The PTFE liner in Lite6 means that there is a temperature limit of 240C. With all of the above said, Lite6 is aimed at the more standard materials, such as ABS and PLA, and it really does produce beautiful looking prints with outstanding reliability. The full length PTFE liner also means you get great performance with flexible materials like NinjaFlex.

    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 of 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 v6 with ease.

    A range of versions for most users.

    In order to keep costs down we are offering Lite6 in 1.75mm filament diameter only, which meets the needs of the majority of users. Just like the 1.75mm E3D-v6 we have used our integrated bowden coupling system, which means that Lite6 is suitable for use as a direct or a bowden hotend right out of the box. We also have 24v and 12v electronics on offer to support as many machines as possible.

    Exceptional Reliability

    The metal bodied construction of Lite6 the hotend 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. Unlike hotends constructed with PEEK bodies Lite6 is also very tolerant of overheating accidents. Although the PTFE liner may be damaged by the heat, there is no PEEK insulator to melt into a puddle of molten polymer. The stainless steel parts are incredibly thermally robust 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. New PTFE liners cost only £0.33!

    We’ve also 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. This means that we’re using tried and tested v6 components to deliver great performance in the most important areas of Lite6.

    Renowned Customer Support

    We’re proud of the fact that customers frequently make positive comments about our customer support. Like all E3D products, you can expect to receive proper support for any questions you might have, as well as the reassurance that if something is wrong, we’ll make it right. More than you could hope to expect from the cloners.

    "Great Support and product .. Ty to Bonnie for support =) ..." - Jerem (Feb 2015)

    "... E3d has GREAT costumer support. Top notch company. You will not regret ordering from them." - Scott Robel (Jan 2015)

    "... excellent customer service when I emailed with my questions ..." - Hernandez (Nov 2014)

    Thank you guys for your kind comments - it's always appreciated!

    New, Lower Price

    Low cost, high quality.

    We were concerned that we needed to create something that was low cost, but not low quality. By using a PTFE liner, we are able to relax our need for aggressive thermodynamic control of thermodynamics that is needed in v6. The mostly metal construction and use of E3D-v6 nozzles means that you do not lose out on print quality. The PTFE liner reduces required manufacturing tolerances and contributes to Lite6's exceptional reliability.

    The core component of Lite6 that makes it different from it’s more capable sibling the E3D-v6 is the new stainless steel heat-sink (a concept that will horrify anyone with a keen understanding of thermodynamics). This means we were able to replace our previous two component system of a stainless heat-break (which are extremely expensive to manufacture), and our aluminium heatsink. This does mean that Lite6 is a touch heavier than v6, with 22g more weight due to stainless being considerably heavier than aluminium.

    Designed for manufacture.

    We very very carefully designed the Lite6 heatsink with a specific lathe in mind, using a specific set of tooling. We almost spent more time thinking about the GCODE that the CNC lathe would run, the order of operations, and the cost implications of each operation than we did on the initial design - which, frankly, is boringly simple!

     

    Why is E3D creating a mid range hotend?

    Low cost doesn’t have to mean a poor user experience.

    We’re known for our all metal high performance hotends, and advanced multi-material extrusion systems. However we see a constant stream of users who come to us after purchasing a hotend, or machine with a hotend already fitted, where the hotend has either completely failed, or has very poor performance and reliability. Particularly low quality clones of genuine products which just haven’t been manufactured properly, and also hotends that have intrinsic design flaws. Some of the products out there are simply dangerous too. The status quo just did not seem acceptable to us. We wanted to take our expertise in manufacturing and hotend design and create an entry level product for new users or users with a lower budget, but still offer an assured level of performance and reliability.

    A Hotend option that grows with your needs.

    We also wanted to allow people who are starting out at a lower budget to have the ability to easily upgrade in the future, so that when the time comes to boost the performance of their printer they don’t have to print a new extruder, or reconfigure their printer. This provides a nice stepping stone into the world of 3D printing with a hotend that has the capability to increase it’s performance according the the users needs, budget and experience.

    Ecosystem

    The Lite6 is the latest addition to the v6 ecosystem and because it shares core components and key dimensions with the E3D-v6 you know that your investment is for the long term.

    The full range of replaceable v6 nozzles are available to Lite6 allowing you to keep a selection of nozzles in your printing arsenal which you can easily swap in and out depending on the application.


    Ever growing range of V6 Nozzles

    As well as being able to use standard v6 nozzles, you can also upgrade to Volcano giving you unprecedentedly fast printing capabilities with exceptionally high strength.


    Nozzle Range

    Because the Lite6 has exactly the same external dimensions as v6 - any mounts that are available for v6 will work with Lite6. Furthermore, when you are ready to upgrade to a full-blown v6, and unlock the full high-temperature performance of your core components you can simply buy the upgrade pack and make the easy switch - you won’t even need to change your HotEnd mount or re-wire your electronics.

     

    *depending on your application you may need a hot end mount like the 6mm birch mount here: http://www.makerfarm.com/index.php/hot-ends/hot-end-parts/j-head-acrylic-mounting-plate.html
