Product Details

Upgrade your printer to print exotic and high temp materials (up to 290C). REAL all-metal assembly, even in the heatbreak. While this includes our community support feel free to ask us questions on assembly though our ticket system.

Tips for Using This Hotend

  • We recommend if you are getting jamming with PLA (this can happen with ALL METAL heatbreaks from any manufacturer) to print a filament oiler.
    • Like this one: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:492067. Stuff it with a sponge or fiber then lightly wet with CANOLA oil. This will oil the filament path and keep the PLA from sticking to the heatbreak on a longer retract.
    • After using this for about a month or two your heatbreak should have a nice “seasoning” on the inside and use of an oiler will be needed less or not at all.
  • Stick to under 3mm retractions. All metals will need less retraction than a PTFE lined hotend. 25-50mm/s depending on your machine setup. Wipe is recommended (2-5mm).

    After having issues with my stock hotend and wanting to reliably be able to print other material then PLA, I went with the TH3D V6 with the titanium heatbreak. Installation was quick and painless and I’ve had zero problems with it.

    After reading the number of people who said all metal hotends had trouble with PLA I was afraid I’d experience clogs but taking the advice of using an oiler, I’m happy to say I haven’t had a single issue.

    As long as you take the time to make sure it’s properly installed and your PID is correctly tuned, this is a great upgrade to have.

    Well machined, easy to assemble with a plethora of assembly guides and instructions on the web. Heats up even faster than stock, and with the heavy duty mount is still light enough that it doesnt affect travel at all! I recommend also getting the silicone sock set.

    This took a bit of time for me to install properly but now that I have it done I am so happy. Just remember to set our retraction to no more than 3 mm, though 2mm is prefered. I would recommend pairing this with the high temp tough tubing, titanium heat break, and heavy duty mount. Bear in mind the mount would also require a 5015 layer fan and should also use the CR10s old fan as its 40mm instead of the 30mm thats included on this system.

    Amazing support from the community and TH3D which helped me fix all my problems !

    11 out of 10, will purchase from again!

    Straight magic! Makes printing with wood pla much easier.
