About

Hi, I am Vlad, a founder of 3DPassion.com. Welcome to my Nova project!

I want to introduce you to the result of an entire year of development – Nova 



And What is Nova?

  •  slomo during first tests, sound on. Fanless heatsink cools from fast motion! 300mm/s! 


Nova is a high performance 3D Printer hotend that is compatible with the most 3D printers you already own! 


Here are some of the key features on this new hotend:

- Print at high flow at 300+ mm/s speeds thanks to a thermal design that works!

  • Nope, no catch here. It's not limited to 0.1 layers, this speed was tested with 0.25 layer height and 0.5 nozzle. 
  • And no, you don't need special extruder either. All tests were intentionally conducted on popular hardware that most of you already use.

- Nova is literally clog-proof. If you manage to clog it, please share your secret!

  •  280mm/s demo. 0.5 nozzle. 0.2 layer height. Fanless! 


- Up to 80% less active cooling is required. Allows to reduce fan speed and eliminate all the noise.

- Fully modular design.  Every component is customizable according to your budget and your  specific needs. Printing PLA? Choose a stock version. Suddenly feel like going watercooled? Got you covered! Keep the existing hotend and get a  quick add-on without breaking the bank.

- EasyLevel. Hotend height is easily adjustable for multi-extruder setups.

- QuickSwap. Quickly change print cores in under 1 minute without having to replace the entire hotend.

- No cheap parts, no settling for less, no BS. Every component is produced with only performance and  quality in mind, not our bottom line.

- Smaller thinner titanium heatbreaks do the job 2x better.

- Smaller thinner nozzles because why not!

- Improved 60-80-100 Watt heaters, 500C rated. Let's heat things up!

  • Reach 210C in under 20 seconds! 
  • Reach 500C in under 50 seconds!

- Shorter sturdier hotend to make sure there is no play at the tip

- PEEK enabled - print at up to 500C, easy!

Here is another speed printing demo; original sound was intentionally left intact to show that video speed has not been modified.

  •  Print settings: 260mm/s, 0.2mm layer height, 0.5mm nozzle, no heatsink fan! 

Risks and challenges

We have been working on this product for the last 6 months and went through 5 prototype iterations. I am very confident about what Nova can do as it was running non stop during last 45 days on test machine with no issues and showing great results.

The is a small chance that early bird delivery may shift from second half of march into early April, as we are a week late with this campaign launch due to holidays.
