  • These socks will keep your nozzle clean and free of burnt on blackened plastic. They don’t just keep the nozzle clean, but also keep heat inside the hotend, and off the print.
  • Made of a heat-resistant, non-stick silicone material our will repel build-up of molten plastic. This really helps with sticky materials like Co-Polyesters and filled materials that like to build up on nozzles.
  • These also offer a huge boost in temperature stability, particularly if you use high airflow cooling around the nozzle to cool the print. The additional cooling combined with reduced radiation of heat from the block and nozzle to the print really boost the ability to print great overhangs and bridges, all while keeping the hotend temperature extremely stable.
  • The covers simply push onto the front of the hotend with no disassembly - they will be a tight fit when first pushed on cold. When hot the silicone will expand to the correct size to fit the hotend snugly. The elastic material will fit all nozzle sizes in the range from 0.25mm to 0.80mm

These v6 socks come in a pack of 3 because they don’t last forever. Depending on what materials you print and how much abuse they get they eventually wear away at the nozzle tip. Even with sticky abrasive materials and a bit of abuse they should easily last 100+ print hours. With less sticky materials like ABS and gentler use you can get almost infinite life. Your mileage may vary.

Finally!Was waiting for something like that for a long time and tried serval time making some myself.But for this price I didnt need to anymore.The fit is "ok". Seems like its a little bit too narrow. But fixing it with a cabletie and heating it up for half an hours solves this problem. This can also be seen on the offical pictures :)The nozzle sticks out just enough. If you have got the nozzle looking out further it can be problematical but you can cut of a bit with a sharp knife anytime, its very easy to cut.If you ordered a chimera (which I did) you wont be able to get both socks on. You need to cut one side of. But the chimera was designed before these socks so thats ok ;) Holds on afterall.Overhangs seems to print really good now because the silicone wont give off as much heat as the heaterblock alone would.I hope Ive been honest enough.
