We are proud to announce the release of the Prometheus System (E3D V6 Upgrade)!
This upgrade kit allows E3D V6 Hot End users to create multi-color and multi-material objects. The Prometheus System solution simplifies the multi-extrusion process and expands the capabilities of 3D printers using the E3D V6.
The original Prometheus System launched on Kickstarter in September 2016 raising $76,215 funding in 30 days. The Prometheus System has a modular design that consists of 3 key components: the hot end, the extruders, and the feeder. The original Prometheus System was specifically designed to work with our Prometheus V2 Hot End. However, with the success of the Kickstarter campaign and hundreds of active users around the world, many people have requested system compatibility with the E3D V6 Hot End.
To enable reliable multi-filament 3D printing using the Prometheus System with the E3D V6, we had to develop the "Prometheus Heat Break". This is a precision machined and polished component that replaces the standard E3D V6 heat break to facilitate reliable filament switching with the Prometheus System.
When compared to conventional methods of dual extrusion, the Prometheus System has several advantages. By using a single nozzle, the Prometheus System eliminates the calibration and nozzle dripping issues that affect dual nozzle configurations. In addition, by feeding one filament at a time into a single hot end, the Prometheus System prevents the problems with color contamination and increased extrusion pressure that are associated with color mixing hot ends.
The Prometheus System (E3D V6 Upgrade) solves all of the issues associated with conventional methods of dual extrusion. We believe that this new product will be a popular upgrade for E3D V6 users who want to print multi-color and multi-material objects.
The Prometheus System (E3D V6 upgrade) is available for order and ships immediately. The upgrade kit can be purchased by following the link below:
