  1. Yup we're completely rinsed for stock of 3mm hotends at present, expecting resupply within the week and we'll ship them as soon as we have them. You can still place your order as a preorder. Switzerland really is expensive to ship to - which is a pity. Interlink/DPD do a great low cost service all over Europe for around £15 depending on where you are for up to 30kg of stuff, but it jumps to £38 for Switzerland. FedEx is cheaper.
  2. Jonny You shouldn't need to pay a penny! (Unless you want to buy extras that exceed the £50 mark to go with your free hotend) - you can just log in, shop and checkout.
  3. Jonny You posted first, so I suppose you win! I've added £55 of credit to your E3D account - should be enough to cover the hotend, shipping and some bearings/bushings for the mount. Will be interested to see what you come up with!
  4. Chuck You'll need to add a new printed XY carriage to get it on, so not quite a bolt on and go, but no a massive overhaul either. There are some E3D-v6 mounts out there on thingiverse, but these may not fit v6 due to new smaller size of v6. This one looks like it should work quite well though. I'm happy to support the creators of the original v4/v5 mounts in creating a v6 ready mount. If anyone who has designed mounts for the previous E3D ends would like to do an update, i'm happy to get them out some free parts to support the cause. Jonny Some users, mainly 1.75mm Bowden users with relati
  5. Hi Guys, Just thought I'd drop in and let you know we've released our new v6 hotend, which is smaller, easier, and generally better performing. There's a 10% off promo for the first few days too. I'm particularly excited about what the 3mm bowden product means for UM users, as it carves a huge amount of bulk of the hotend by using embedded couplers. The UM mounting designs are by far some of the most polished and well thought out mounts I've seen for E3D hotends and I hope the v6 can serve to make things even better. As is always the case with E3D products, if you're having problems just ge
  6. Hi ultimaker peeps, Really awesome to see all the very beautifully designed solutions here on this thread. You UM guys seem to all have quite a bit more knack for design than I see elsewhere, lots of curved filleted pretty solutions! I get a few people a week asking about how to mount the E3D to their machine, mainly pertaining to electronics/firmware setup. We're currently holding a competition on our own forums for the best guides and posts to do with E3D hotends. If someone were to write a guide for E3D and UM then they would stand a very good chance of winning some prize money. http:
  7. Hi guys, I haven't been as active as I would like on these forums, but I am simply strapped for time. I do read everything that gets posted here, but it seems you guys are getting on really well. If you ever do have issues I am still here looking out for you guys! Just thought I'd drop by and let you know about the status of E3D Kraken. I now have prototypes: More images here: http://imgur.com/a/8Qey0 And a video run down of the features and design here: I would love to see someone get this running on an ultimaker - and I am willing to give out free parts to someone who can show th
  8. Here's and idea for you guys. Take that coupler I sent you, and pull that little elliptical collet out. You'll see that it's an injection moulded part with tiny embedded steel teeth. What happens here is that as you try and pull out the tubing, the little collet gets pulled back with it, when it's inside the body of the coupler there is a little angled ridge which compresses the little jaws of the collet to grip the tube. The whole coupler is designed around sealing and carrying gasses or liquids, but we don't care about any of that. What you should be able to do is create a hole with an ap
  9. The assorted mounting options on here are looking really nice! Looks like you are all getting on nicely. I'm fully in approval of re-using the ultimaker aluminium block/heater/thermocouple - as long as its got an M6 thread down the middle then you're golden really. Nick Foley The thermistor is the remaining pain point i'd like to get sorted, and I really have looked into those sorts of options. However I am unable to find a nicely packaged thermistor that is rated to any sort of decent temperature (150C+). I have even asked for them to be custom made from several factories in china, but to
  10. Thingster Nice suggestion there - noted. Nick Foley Sounds good - keep us updated. I am working on a section for the site where we will have some sort of compatibility grid with suggested printed adaptors where needed etc. It would be good to have a few different options for the UM crowd to mount the E3Dv5 etc to their machines. Kraken is on the way, slight delay due to a last minute optimisation that makes things a little more compact and easier to use. Unfortunately I think we may be up to 4-5 weeks away from Beta sales. I should have some pictures of my handmade prototype and CAD render
  11. Hi All, To everyone that has a pending order with us: Everything is shipping! All orders made before June 11th have shipped. Everything else is shipping over the weekend, possibly Monday for some of the very recent orders. Everyone is receiving the most up-to date hotend, which is effectively the v5 now. Many performance and ease of use tweaks have been done, but the fundamentals such as mounting dimensions, overall length etc (the things that matter for making it fit your machine) have remained identical. You will just be receiving a hotend that is lighter in weight, and
  12. Trion Awesome! I think this is the first "clone" version I have seen. (I have heard of others doing, or attempting to do so, but nothing coming of it) Really nice looking machining. The version you will recieve (I think - I don't do the actual shipping) will be a slightly updated version with more fins, and less weight, as well as slightly increased chamfers all around the filament path to ensure smooth insertion and passage of filament. In general: I know I havent been super active here in the forums! Sorry. It's just a matter of being super busy. We have had a bit of a problem with bein
  13. Chopmeister It's annoying as hell isn't it? It's like that because the reprap "standard" is based (albeit somewhat loosely) around Groovemount and J-Head hotends, which were designed in the USA where metric is not prevalent. Sigh. Furthermore - our dimensions deviate from the standard! Because the normal mounting method is two screws going through the body and through the groove in the top of the hotend, and biting into the hotend as they pass. Older hotends are made from peek, which is much more compliant for screws to bite into. However ours in aluminium, so we have to add some clearance
  14. KitWasHere: The thermistor is a really standard EPCOS 100K, that is available as option 1 in the default marlin firmware. No making of tables or hassle needed. Just use the default ultimaker config, but change the -1 to a 1 and you should be good to go!
