We’ve expanded our range of cables and wiring options over the last few weeks, and thought we’d take the time to let you know about it.
Our best wishes to everyone for the holiday season – we wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! You have our sincere thanks for making 2017 another great year in the world of 3D printing. We would not be here without your support.
We look forward to seeing what 2018 has in store. In the meantime, we’ll still be operating a few days around Christmas and New Year’s – so if you’re in a hurry to grab anything, please check the below dates:
Thursday 21st – Friday 22nd: Open and shipping orders
Saturday 23rd – Sunday 24th: Closed for weekend
Monday 25th – Tuesday 26th: Closed for Christmas
Wednesday 27th – Friday 29th: Open and shipping orders
Saturday 30th – Sunday 31st: Closed for weekend

Orders received while we are closed will be processed when we return, and we’ll be working hard to get through them as quickly as possible. We expect to get caught up within one or two business days of New Year’s Day, but you are always welcome to contact us if you’d like to check up on an order’s status.
Thanks for a great 2017!
We’re excited today to announce that our magnetic encoder modules are finally ready to go!
We’ve been working on these since late last year, and though it took longer than we expected we’re happy to finally be able to offer an easy and powerful solution for bringing closed-loop control to 3D printing.
We’ve been wanting to have our own control boards for a while now – we’re often asked for recommendations on control boards, and we’ve wanted to have our own option to put forward – an option where we control the quality, where we control the components used, and where we set the specification – because, really, that’s the only way we can know what we’re recommending.
That’s why we’re very excited to announce RUMBA+.
We’ve update our shipping options to be more flexible and transparent.
We’ve now been shipping Mark2 kits for two months. It’s been fun seeing our kits released out into the wild, and we really appreciate everyone who has given our printers a try – thank you! We’ve made a few changes, and would like to explain why.
We’ve been working for the better part of a year now to bring about the next iteration of our 3D printer kits. We’ve tried and tested a lot of ideas along the way – some successfully, some not – and now we’re finally ready to unveil the finished product.
As of today, we’re now open for business internationally! Awesome!
We’ve made several changes to make this happen. We’ve added support for different currencies – for the time being, USD, GBP and EUR, and we’ll look to expand these if need be.
All orders within Australia are subject to GST. International orders are GST-free, and checkout will reflect this once your shipping address has been entered.
Shipping from Australia is surprisingly expensive, but we’re doing our best to keep our rates as competitive as possible.

Exciting news – today is the official launch of E3D’s latest hotend – the E3D-Lite6!
The Lite6 is designed as a more cost-effective counterpart to the E3D-V6. The Lite6 is an excellent entry-level hotend for those who are trying to stick to a budget, but still want the best bang-for-buck. Built to the same high quality standards as E3D’s other hotends, the Lite6 is a solidly-built hotend at a very tempting price-point.
