Brexit Effect: UK Products Now ~10% Cheaper

July 08, 2016

As you are likely already aware, Great Britain recently voted to leave the European Union. Among the many things affected by the vote, the British pound has dropped to its lowest value since 1985. 

As a response, we have decided to reprice all of our UK products to reflect the change. The products that are now cheaper, include: All E3D products, the Duet Controller, PanelDue, and the Mini Differential IR Sensor.

The difference is about a 10% savings. 

And for those of you who may have been thinking about buying a new hotend, this price drop will mark the first time the E3Dv6 has been under $70 in the U.S. It will also be the first time the E3D Lite6 has been under $30 in the U.S., so there’s no reason not to pick up a genuine E3D hotend today.

Please note: this discount cannot be applied to past orders. 

Pre-Order: Duet Wifi

Think3Dprint3D and Esher3D are producing the next generation of 3D printing electronics and firmware. This collaboration builds on the success of the previous generations of Duet 3D printer controller and the most advanced 3D printing firmware: RepRapFirmware. 

There are lots of new exciting features with the Duet Wifi, including a dedicated wifi module, higher stepper and heater current ratings, and more accurate temperature control.

The Duet Wifi uses the TMC2600 stepper drivers, which include many features to improve accuracy, and torque. We've been testing it and we've really noticed a reduction in vibration at lower speeds. The Duet Wifi is currently in preorder atduet3d.com.

Check out more details and pre-order by clicking here.

It's also easy to configure. Set up your printer and update the firmware through the web interface. No need to compile your own firmware.

Filastruder will handle U.S. fulfillment of these pre-orders, so if you'd like to pre-order, do so by clicking here, and everything else will be handled automatically.

New Cartridge Thermistor 

E3D has moved to cartridge-based thermistors. All of our hotend kits now come with this new style. 

Previously, E3Dv6 hotends made use of a screw and clamping washer to grip the thermistor in place. This works well once assembled, but can be fiddly to assemble and maintain. The new cartridge-style thermistor makes those parts available to folks that would like to upgrade.

The thermistor sensors use the proven Semitec 104GT thermistors, which are then potted into a  cylindrical copper cartridge with a high conductivity ceramic based adhesive. The legs are insulated with fibreglass sleeving, and terminated with a Molex Microfit 3.0 connector.

The blocks come with all fixings (screws, etc) needed for installation, and the thermistor cartridge comes with a ~1 meter long cable.

Don't forget about E3D Edge Filament


A new material E3D has been worked on and optimized for some time, Edge combines the toughness and resilience of ABS, with ease of use that comes close to PLA, and adds a whole bunch of really superior processing properties that make printing the stuff a real dream. Edge is one of the Brexit Effect price drop, so now is a perfect time to grab some as we all variants in stock and ready to ship as our shipping manager, Mike, shows you below.
