The E3D Chimera+ is a two-nozzle hotend designed for printing with two different types of filament in one model. For a single-nozzle hotend capable of dual color printing, check out the Cyclops+.

The Chimera+ HotEnd with the examples of its outputs.

Featuring advanced high-temperature functionality, the Chimera+ comes available in several variants differing in terms of voltage and cooling. It can be equipped either with a standard 3010 fan or exceptionally lightweight, effective water-cooled heatsink.

Thanks to its reliable construction and high productivity, the E3D Chimera+ HotEnd is suited for manifold professional and personal applications.

Part of the system

The Chimera+ HotEnd is fully compatible with the E3D equipment range, which allows the user to upgrade their setup to any desired specifications, starting from heater blocks and temperature sensors to heater cartridges and nozzles.

Multi-material capabilities

With two independently temperature-controlled heater blocks, the Chimera+ is able to print two filament types at once. For example, two PLA filaments of different colors or a combination of PLA and PVA as a support material for complex shapes with cleaner support removal.

Advanced cooling

The water-cooled version of the Chimera+ is perfect for heated build chambers that do not support air cooling (with ambient temperatures more than 40 °C). This makes the Chimera+ one of the E3D’s most versatile HotEnds enabling printing of advanced filaments such as PEEK with a suitable high-temperature support material.

Thoughtful supply kit

The device comes with everything one needs to start 3D printing right after receiving the package.
