To celebrate the E3D V6's third birthday we wanted to do something special to show off the HotEnd that spawned a whole ecosystem. More than just bling, the Gold edition V6 has been upgraded with some of the very best components available from E3D, at a lower price point than purchasing components individually. We upgraded the following stock components for the best we sell in order to create the bacon of HotEnds:
Golden Heat Sink: We've blinged up the heat sink with gold anodising, so that everyone can see from 10 yards away that you are a fancy individual who will only accept the best of the best in HotEnd technology..
Heater Block: We've switched the aluminium heater block for a plated copper-alloy block, again increasing heat transfer to the filament and reducing the chance of filament goo sticking to it. This reduces the need for a sock, so that you can show off the shiny engraving.
Nozzle: The standard brass nozzle has been swapped in favour of 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 fibre, filled filaments, or even glow in the dark filament then these nozzles are a must.
Heater Cartridge: We've swapped standard heaters for our upcoming high precision, quick release heater cartridges. Spot-on physical dimensions and electrical specifications guarantee perfect performance. Quick release also makes tinkering with your HotEnd a doddle.
Fan Duct: A clear, moulded plastic fan duct shows off the beautiful golden heatsink to its very best.
PTFE Guide: We've upgraded the standard PTFE guide to High Tolerance Capricorn PTFE Tubing. This new bowden tubing has a tight diameter and much-reduced friction, giving smoother, more accurate extrusion.
