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 optimized 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 anodized - not 24 carat - but still bling.
In this instance, we’ve switched out the aluminum 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 fiber, wood/ metal filled filaments, or even glow in the dark filaments then these nozzles are a must.
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.
A clear, injection moulded plastic fan duct showcases the golden heatsink at its very best.
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.
