Description

We are delighted to be able to supply the renowned E3D Chimera and Cyclops Dual extrusion modular hot-end system. For more details see the E3D Release announcement. As described by E3D:-

“The Chimera - 2 In, 2 Out - Dual Extrusion System

Chimera is a neat and simple way in which to add conventional dual extrusion to your machine in a simple, air cooled package. Nozzles can be individually adjusted in height for an easy setup experience. Each nozzle is individually temperature controllable for ultimate material versatility. Chimera inherits the best from its cousins, v6 and Kraken, combining them into a single, reliable, yet highly capable hotend with a tiny 30x28mm footprint and easy mounting.”

“The Cyclops - 2 In, 1 Out - Switching HotEnd

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 most conventional dual extrusion systems. This new approach has been working excellently 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.”

“The Legends Pack

The Legends pack gives you the capability of both Cyclops and Chimera, by including both the experimental Cyclops extrusion system parts as well as the stable Chimera nozzle components. This will allow you to build and swap between each system quickly and easily. We've even included the additional thermistors and heater cartridges so you won't have to re-fit thermistors in order to change over. Probably the most versatile dual extrusion setup money can buy!”
