Experimental V6 Nozzle

From high-resolution 0.15mm diameters to undrilled nozzles you can customise yourself, E3D experimental nozzles are at the cutting edge of 3D printing. These nozzles are fully integrated into the E3D Ecosystem and will fit V6, Lite6, and Titan Aero HotEnds, and are compatible with Prusa 3D printers.

You can identify 0.15 nozzles because they have 2 dots diagonally on one flat of the nozzle

This nozzle has been engineered to be as user friendly as possible, however, in order to obtain the best prints possible, here are a few recommended settings.



  • Heated bed capable of at least 100°C
  • Light coat of glue stick for initial layer bed adhesion

Motion system

Although a belt system using does produce acceptable results, artefacts from microstepping become quite visible at this scale. We recommend using or updating your printer to use


Using a geared extruder is essential. We find that a 3:1 gear ratio works perfectly. Our Titan workes admirably.


Recommended materials:

This printing method uses hardly any plastic due to the small size of the prints, it therefore makes sense to buy good quality plastics, since each print will be relatively cheap. We also recommend using a filament cleaner and to use dry, fresh filament.
