  2. Open Source, Design Patents, and E3D

    Open Source, Design Patents, and E3D
    Recently we’ve been taking another look at how we license our products here at E3D. There’ve been a few questions about licensing and what it means to be open-source as a hardware manufacturer, so we wanted to state our position clearly and openly for the benefit of all involved.

    The E3D v6 HotEnd Design and Details
    It's been a long road to v6; we've gone back to the drawing board and taken a good hard look at every tiny detail in the system. We've had to push back release a few times to ensure that things were absolutely correct in manufacture and design, but we're finally ready to release the full details of our new HotEnd. ...
