The v6 & Volcano Original E3D Power Pack features the combination of the best available HotEnd E3D. This pack offers the ideal set for all types of 3D prints, from small and elaborate pieces to large pieces, always having the perfect combination of finishing quality and printing time.
This model of HotEnd reaches 300˚C with the original thermistor cartridge, increasing up to 400˚C by means of an update that is available (requires additional electronics) giving the option of printing materials of large properties such as PEEK. In addition, the E3D v6 incorporates an internal PTFE coating (universal version) to prevent direct contact of the filament with the metal at high temperature, so that overheating and burns are avoided. Thanks to this, many materials can be printed, even those requiring higher temperature and precision, such as policarbonate or nylon.
The original E3D HotEnd v6 is not an update of the famous E3D HotEnd v5, but has been designed from scratch based on the experience E3D has in this type of components, which was another jump in the evolution of the HotEnd. The E3D v6 is versatile, so you can print different types of materials with a high quality.
Compared to E3D v5, it has been improved by reducing its z dimension (up to 62mm in some cases) by increasing the print distance on that axis and minimizing heat sink jam problems when using dense materials. The new design facilitates the installation of the HotEnd, being the holder of the thermistor much more precise and safe, because it incorporates a screw by the side of the block to avoid the use of the Kapton at the beginning of the cables, besides that already has the cables welded and covered by a glass sheath. In addition, the thermistor cartridge holder has been modified to prevent it from loosening with the extruder displacement, avoiding problems of temperature variation of the HotEnd (something that happened to the E3D v5) and moving the location of this closer to the nozzle, Perform better temperature control (variations of 0.5˚C or less) and rise from 20˚C to 200˚C in 65 seconds.
PRINT GREAT VARIETY OF MATERIALS
Thanks to getting a high and precise conservation of the temperature in the nozzle you get uniform finishes and high quality; Even in soft and flexible materials such as FilaFlex, PLA Soft y FlexFill 98A, thanks to the incorporation of the PTFE tube inside.
GREAT VARIETY OF NOZZLE
With the introduction of the E3D v6, a large number of nozzles of different diameter are added to the market. This variety of diameters allows from small prints in great detail finishing up larger parts faster; Even a 0.4mm nozzle is ideal for almost all kinds of uses. These nozzles always show a great balance between speed, manageability and high resolution printing. This is due to the special care that has taken E3D in designing both the interior and exterior, giving it much importance to look for the exact geometry for each diameter.
The original E3D Volcano HotEnd presents the perfect features for large, long-lasting 3D prints without losing finishing quality. In addition, it supports all E3D HotEnds except the Cyclops (compatible with HotEnd E3D v5 or v6), providing more work versatility to 3D printers.
The E3D Volcano is presented as a HotEnd that enables 3D impressions much faster than the E3D v6, with the same quality and precision. These qualities are conferred by the orientation of the thermistor cartridge with respect to the flow of the filament by the nozzle. In the original E3D v6 the thermistor cartridge is positioned perpendicular to the flow; However, in the original Volcano E3D, the position between the two elements is parallel. This distribution offers a warmth that covers more area and in a more uniform way allowing, therefore, a greater flow and speed of impression. As shown in the following graph, the use of the original Volcano E3D with a 0.8mm nozzle presents a much shorter times than the original E3D v6. This data may lead one to think that, due to the increase in speed, 3D printing quality is lower. However, nothing further from reality, since through the Volcano E3D the final piece is much more resilient and solid. The only drawback that the E3D Volcano shows is the increase in the length of the entire HotEnd, about 8.5mm, which reduces the printing area on the z axis, although the loss of height is low compared to the reduction of print.
As seen in the next piece, the finish is very good, smooth and with great brightness. Even when using a 0.8mm nozzle with a layer height of 0.6mm, you get a good result in terms of the quality of the properties of 3D parts, even if the size of the parts is reduced.
