The E3D V6 Bowden Hotend Assembly for 3mm Filament is a widely popular Hotend Assembly among 3D Makers throughout the world thanks to the great design and consistently good results it offers. It has, over the past few years, been upgraded and advanced time and time again, which has resulted in a high quality, lightweight and reliable design that can accommodate a wide range of different 3D Printers.

Aspects in which this hotend assembly excel include excellent heat management capabilities, exceptional filament control, and greatly reduced chances for oozing or leaking. All of these features are packed into a very affordable little package, with an included fan and fan mounting shroud to add even more value to the offer. The thermistor is secured with a single screw, while the entire heater block and heater cartridge are snugly wrapped within temperature-resistant Kapton Tape – which protects the components from excess heat and prevents any 3D Printing Filament from sticking to the bottom or sides of the heater block.

Pro-Tip: For those of you who are using an all metal hotend and having issues with plastic oozing through the heater-block threads, try heating your hotend up to 270°C and tightening the nozzle with a No. 8 spanner – Just don't get too carried away or you will damage the heatbreak, since it has a very thin 0.3mm stainless steel wall.

Typical Applications for the E3D V6 3mm Bowden Hotend Assembly:

Although the E3D V6 Bowden Hotend Assembly for 3mm Filament is stocked primarily as a replacement or upgrade for the Prusa i3, it can also be used for any compatible printer with a 3mm Bowden-style extruder system. Alternatively, if you have a direct drive system, we also stock the E3D V6 3mm Direct Drive Hotend, which is almost identical to this assembly but is designed for direct drive systems instead.

This E3D V6 3mm Hotend supports a wide range of different 3D Printer Nozzles, while the All-Metal design enables it to reach temperatures of up to 300°C without any extra modifications. This enables printing in a far wider range of Exotic Filaments like Polycarbonate, MetalFill and a range of others as well.


*Note: This is not supplied by E3D, although it is manufactured to the same specs and quality controlled locally to ensure it functions exactly as expected - while saving you money.
