Keep your 3D Printer's heater block and nozzle clean and warm with these silicone socks. Custom design for the E3D Volcano.
This product is compatible with the E3D cartridge style heater block on the Volcano.
The sock provides the additional benefit of insulating your heat source. This allows for more cooling of your print for better bridges and overhangs without the concern of accidentally cooling your nozzle and causing temperature fluctuations (or the dreaded temp fall error). It also insulates your part from the heat generated from the heater block which will cause some improvement in quality.
It is expected that this sock may become worn or damaged over time, and they're cheap enough that the shipping is more than the cost of one piece, so we've bundled them into multi packs. Your future self will thank us.
- E3D V6
These fit nice and snug without slipping- better than the standard E3D V6 (non-volcano) fit. They also seem durable and long lasting. I have probably 250 hours on one now and have removed it and reinstalled it several times with zero signs of wear or loosening. One drawback- during the first day or two (20-30 hours?) of printing they make a pretty strong odor. After a while, that tapers off. I'm not knocking off any stars for that since they perform as-expected and this smell is only temporary while whatever it is in it off-gasses and then is done.
It comes with 3
Great item seems it may be just a little thicker than the standard v6 one so you may need to account for that in your designs, Fits well,holds on well, and seems like a quality piece. Of note a this "multi-pack" comes with 3 socks..not sure why they don't divulge that anywhere in the listing.
