E3D V6 j-head clone
We wanted to try an E3D V6 clone hotend as we had heard good things about it and bought this kit here
Given the small price difference with this kit we chose this other one of the E3D V6 equipped with nozzle of various sizes
some spare and comfortable nozzle cleaning of various sizes (the one indicated in the link is another one with more tweezers)
the shipment was fast as usual, the packaging more than accurate and everything that was expected in the package was present. The E3D V6 is well assembled with its fan and stand
and resistor and thermistor are mounted with care and precision.
To test the E3D V6 we mounted it on a Plico 10
After tuning for the pid at 220 ° we immediately tried to raise the temperature of the E3D V6 up to 250 °. The response in terms of time was almost immediate, a few seconds (146) and we were at 250 °. Curious for having read the temperatures that this hotend promises to reach, we tried, just out of curiosity the 285 °. Considering that the start was 250 ° to reach 285 ° it took proportionally longer, from 250 ° to 285 ° it took 63 seconds but then it remained very stable. We gave up on increasing even more because we were curious to see how it printed more than for fear that it would present some problems and off to the first print in PLA at 195 °
The filament used was not even brand new but I would say that the result was more than good
No feared jamming, some reviews talk about it, no leakage, nothing at all. We tried other coils with the same result
In short, this E3D V6 clone hotend for what it costs is a real surprise, also given the equipment with which it is shipped directly from Amazon and with all the necessary guarantees, for the moment we can safely recommend it, we will see over time how it will behave. and especially with materials other than PLA.
