Experimental switching single-output HotEnd for 3D printing afficionados
Two Inputs, One Output
Two HotEnds in one; automatic switching from one to the other!
Much lighter than mounting two V6 HotEnds side by side!
Swap out blocks and nozzles from the full E3D ecosystem, or easily switch to the Chimera HotEnd
Add Multi-Extrusion capability to your machine with the easiest, most versatile, and highest performance HotEnds in the industry. E3D has a range of modular systems which give you the ability to create printers that can print a wide range of colours and materials in a single object, in one print.
All our multiple extrusion systems share some core design principles:
- Our signature E3D All-Metal, high performance design for fantastic prints in every material, every time.
- Easy to level nozzles make getting started in dual extrusion easier than ever before.
- Absolute minimum size and weight, won’t weigh down your machine or reduce printing performance
2 Inputs, 1 Output Extrusion System
Cyclops introduces a new way of printing multiple materials not yet seen before in commercially available hotends. By taking 2 input materials and printing them alternately from a single nozzle Cyclops is able to eliminate ooze problems that are inherent in conventional dual extrusion systems. This new approach has been working excellently for us in testing at E3D, but we are releasing it now as an experimental product as we are still figuring out the best techniques for using this new HotEnd type.
Printing with a switching HotEnd is an exciting new frontier, although software and electronics setup are fairly simple and we are seeing great results here at E3D we want to be up-front about the status of this product. We are still developing the best techniques, settings and procedures to get beautiful reliable prints every time. Cyclops takes some extra learning and getting used to and may require a little tinkering and tuning to get awesome prints. If you're looking for a more conventional system then Chimera may be a better fit for your needs.
Chimera and Cyclops are close relatives, and also inherit components from the V6 family. This means that you can easily change a Chimera into a Cyclops or vice-versa.
