E3D V6 J-Head - All Metal Hot End
This E3D V6 Metal Hot End is based on the original E3D V6 Hot End design. This hot end is not manufactured by E3D, but is the generic version.
The heater block has been improved by clamping the heater cartridge and the fixing the thermistor. This design is more robust and allows for
improved thermal transfer. Another improvement is the V6 hot end is about 10mm shorter in length than the V5 hot end. This allows for higher
prints and a few grams lighter than the V5.
This hot end is a hybrid between the J-head hot end and the All Metal hot end, because it has the sturdy metal structure of the All Metal hot
end with a cooling fan and the easy to use internal structure of the J-Head hot end with the high temperature PTFE liner. It uses a fan to
constantly blow over the cooling fins to cool down the hot end quickly enough for accurate printing. This is a easy to use, high quality hot
end and has been tested with ABS, PLA, Nylon, PC and Flexible filament and up to a temperature of 300 Deg C.
This hot end comes with cooling fan, heater cartridge and thermistor, it is for 1.75mm Filament and comes with a 0.4mm Nozzle
It comes installed with a 12V fan and bracket for cooling as well as a 40W heater cartridge and 100k thermistor with leads, it also comes
with a 500mm PTFE Tube and also the 2 x Push in Fittings
Note: It is possible that the hot end might leak plastic at the heater block when it is used for the first time. This is because the nozzle
was tightened at room temperature and when the hot end is heated up to printing temperature, a small gap is created between the nozzle and
the heat break. To solve this, loosen the grub screw that locks the nozzle (if present) and heat the hot end to printing temperature.
Hold the heater block with pliers and tighten the nozzle with a spanner a little bit at a time so that the nozzle seats on the heat break.
When done, tighten the grub screw onto the nozzle again.
