Ultimate V6 Hotend with Titanium Heat Break & Upgrade Heat Sink
$20.99 – $27.99
Ultimate V6 Hotend High Temp
The ultimate style of V6 Hotend, with upgraded heat sink that can be used as either in a Bowden Configuration or a Direct Configuration. No need to switch heatsinks if you go from bowden to direct or reverse! Print Higher Temp filaments with the upgraded heater block and a cartridge thermistor included or if you want to go higher you can add a PT100!We include two styles of heat breaks, the traditional bowden 4.1 Heat Break or a Titanium Heat Break! Our 4.1 Heat Break inserts the Bowden tube all the way down to the top of the Nozzle. This is preferable over the heat breaks that are already lined with a ptfe tube you traditionally see since there is no break in the ptfe tube till you hit the nozzle. Meaning less chance of clogs form miss-matched tube cuts. This configuration works great with standard ABS, PETg and PLA filaments.Are you looking to print with high temperature or abrasive filaments? Then the Titanium Heat Break is the one you\’ll want to use! But why Titanium over the steel heat breaks? It\’s all about the Heat. Steel is a fantastic conductor of heat and when using a steel heatbreak in your hotend the steel conducts a lot of the heat upward into the radiator. This can lead to heat creep into the upper filament path and cause a clog. Also it reduces the efficiency of the heater block requiring the 3D printer to use more power to retain heat down where needed to keep the plastic flow consistent.Titanium on the other hand is not a good conductor of heat. Heat will still radiate upward with titanium, but heat creep on high temp plastics are less likely and your heater cartridge won\’t have to work as hard to maintain a consistent temp in the heater block. Our V6 kit gives you the best of worlds, easy to use bowden configuration and titanium, the best for the more difficult plastics!
