  1. A Long-Awaited BigBox Update

    A Long-Awaited BigBox Update
    We've received countless emails over the past few months regarding BigBox, and while we are sorry for the delay in response, we were reluctant to make any announcements before everything was completely certain. This blog post is a big one, going into the good, bad, and unexpected challenges of the BigBox project. However in short: Commercially producing a machine was...

  2. Nozzles and blocks and hobbs, oh my!

    Nozzles and blocks and hobbs, oh my!
    As a special Christmas treat this week we're bringing you a triple-whammy of stocking filler product releases! Get your digits fiddling with E3D's new hardened hobbs, plated copper heater blocks, and nozzles. Note that we said plated copper, not copper plated! These blocks and nozzles are made of high temperature copper alloy and plated with non-stick nickel (and laser-engraved with the...

  3. 0.15mm High-resolution nozzles: For really very extremely small prints

    0.15mm High-resolution nozzles: For really very extremely small prints
    Here at E3D we're continuously trying to develop new and better technology for 3D printers. With the Volcano we solved the problem of printing big, strong, and fast, but how about printing really small and fine details? The 0.25mm nozzle has been available for several years now, but really it isn’t all that much smaller than a “standard” 0.4mm nozzle...

  4. Scaffold: A Soluble Support for Total Geometric Freedom

    Scaffold: A Soluble Support for Total Geometric Freedom
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3VWd0IN7s9Q&w=854&h=480 We all know about the age-old overhang problem: The inability to print features that overhang beyond a certain angle.  Same-material breakaway supports are far from a perfect solution - even with some really great algorithms out there you’re still never going to be able to extract support out of an awkward internal cavity, or deep screw hole...

  5. Silicone socks: Cleaner nozzles and sharper prints

    Silicone socks: Cleaner nozzles and sharper prints
    Here they are, probably the most requested product we’ve released! Since the reddit thread where the enterprising amaurer3210 created his own and we showed off the first early prototypes of these we’ve had people clamouring for them. It took us by surprise! They took longer than expected as we had to learn an entirely new class of materials and manufacturing...

  6. Edge: The filament we always wanted

    Edge: The filament we always wanted
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zWQK0-wbCzw&w=560&h=315 Edge: The filament we always wanted. SpoolWorks Edge is a new material we’ve been working on and optimising for some time now. In summary, it combines the toughness and resilience of ABS, with ease of use that comes close to PLA, and adds a whole bunch of really superior processing properties that make printing the stuff a real dream. ...

  7. Titan: The lightweight, easy-to-use extruder from E3D

    Titan: The lightweight, easy-to-use extruder from E3D
    [embed]https://youtu.be/Fcrz-_VzsQU[/embed] Objectives: As with all things at E3D, we came up with some design objectives before we started getting bogged down in the engineering. In no particular order this is what we wanted from our extruder: Have the filament pushing performance of a geared Greg-Wades extruder. We love these things, and have used them for years, the...

  8. Slaying the Dragon-Off: 2015 Winners

    Slaying the Dragon-Off: 2015 Winners
    During October, we were delighted to watch the very first #DragonOff contest develop into something really exciting. The friendly competition was really formed out of a curiosity to see what's going on in the wider 3D printing community. And a real success it's been, thanks to the great support we've received, with dozens of entries showing an enormous variety of...

  9. Is carbon killing your nozzle?

    TL;DR: Yes, carbon filled filaments will cause rapid and significant damage to standard nozzles. Don’t fear however! We’ve developed a new, incredibly wear-resistant nozzle that basically eliminates wear, and they’re available in a range of popular sizes for both E3D-v6 and Volcano nozzles. Get them here. If you’re interested in the gory technical details and want to see some...

  10. Lite6: The low-cost, high-quality HotEnd for everyone!

    Lite6: The low-cost, high-quality HotEnd for everyone!
    Introduction We know that not everybody needs the all-metal high-temperature performance of an E3D-v6. We’ve come to realise that there exists a need for a hotend that is reliable, and puts out great prints, but meets the budget of those who are just getting started in 3D printing. £21.50!Lite6 is our answer to that need. By adopting a PTFE...
