#4179: Bowden V6 J-head Hotend Heatsink for 1.75 mm filament


The Bowden V6 J-head Hotend is a type of hotend that is designed for use with 3D printers. It is a specific type of hotend that is manufactured by the company E3D, and is known for its high performance and reliability.

The J-head in the name refers to the shape of the hotend, which has a "J" shape that allows for a compact design. The V6 in the name refers to the specific version of the hotend. It is designed to work with 1.75mm filament, which is a standard size for most 3D printing filaments.

The heatsink is an additional component that helps to dissipate heat away from the hotend, which is essential for maintaining stable temperature and preventing overheating. The heatsink is typically made of aluminum and is designed to fit onto the hotend.

The Bowden V6 J-head Hotend is known for its high thermal performance, easy maintenance, and compatibility with a wide range of filaments, including flexibles and high-temperature materials. It is widely used in the 3D printing community and is considered a popular choice for those who want to achieve high-quality prints and fine details.



This V6 Bowden Cooling Tower is a unique design that caters to both 1.75mm and 3mm filament Bowden-style extruders and Hotend Assemblies and is a vital part of the cold end meant to keep filament cool before it reaches the hotend. This pre-emptively prevents blockages, leaks and oozing before it happens by ensuring that the temperature of the filament is well-controlled from the spool to heatbed.

The top of this cooling tower features M10 thread to connect to a standard Bowden Connector, while it has machined thread on the bottom side to fit directly onto the  V6 Heat Break. In the middle, space is reserved for the 30mm Fan Shroud, which blows air onto the radiator to cool the filament within, so that the filament doesn’t melt before it reaches the heating zone in the hotend.

This cooling tower is built to work with Bowden drive 3D printers like the Prusa i3, i3 Mega and Creality CR-10, and universally caters to both 3mm and 1.75mm setups. Towers Page to find the exact radiator you need for your machine

This cooling tower is unique in how it can fit both 1.75mm and 3mm setups, but just remember that for 1.75mm systems, you will have to insert the Bowden tube all the way down to the heatbreak within the cooling tower.
