0.5mm Hotend by e3D – High Performance


Out of stock

Only compatible with BCN3D Sigma and Sigmax.

Fully assembled full metal hotend optimized and manufactured by the global specialist e3D™, which ensure the highest quality standards, providing a smooth and reliable extrusion under different printing environments.

Thanks to its carefully engineered hardened stainless steel nozzle you will be able to print any kind of filament without a trace of wear. Its 0,5mm diameter nozzle provides a balance between printing speed and accuracy, so the 0,5mm Special nozzle is a true workhorse, capable to outperform in any circumstance. Ideal for material-filled filaments such as carbon fiber, wood-filled or metal-filled.

The BCN3D printers allow printing with different hotend sizes: 0.3, 0.4, 0.5 (steel nozzle), 0.6, 0.8 and 1.0 mm. Small nozzles are ideal for detailed models. Instead, big nozzles allow to fabricate more resistant parts or for rapid prints. Visit our Support page to learn how to change the hotend.
