Slice Engineering are making a hotend with a radical (and logical) design change over what we’ve been using on our 3D printers!
On my roadtrip around Europe, I got to spend some time at E3D – in this video, we talk about their newly announced products around high-temperature 3D printing, what is up with the toolchanger (spoiler: it’s about to ship!) and what a future v7 hotend and next-generation Titan extruder could look like!
The time is now! Dual- and Multiextrusion have always been around, but never really caught on. This year, we’re going to see a whole lot more of it and more sophisticated solutions, too!

So as you can tell, it’s going to be a very classy printer once he actually gets around to finishing it.Continue reading
