    I have been looking through your website, and can find no mention as to which of your hot ends work with which printers. I'm looking to buy a printer (leaning toward Ultimaker 2), and compatibility with your hot ends will be a significant factor (better yet would be for you to work with the manufacturer to get them to include them as an option right from the beginning, so I don't have to buy two hot ends for each extruder).

    I really think you need a listing of what printers are compatible with your products, along with a disclaimer as to how well tested they are (i.e. "Tested, known to work", "Untested, should work with some tweeting", "I know a guy who did it, and he's pretty dumb, so you have a chance", "Good luck, you're on your own", etc.

    I know there are hundreds of printers out there, but a listing of 10 or 20 would cover most people. At a minimum, can you tell me if I can use the v6 with an Ultimaker 2, and if so, which one I need?

    You bring up a valid point, what printers work with the E3 manufactured hotends.
    As you indicated there are hundreds of printers out there and even to indicate the 10 or 20 you speak of would take a large
    amount of space and is out of the scope of a hotend manufacturer.
    The best possible place to find out if a printer can use an E3 hotend is the forum that is usually created for that printer's users.
    Someone on that forum would be able to answer your question if the printer is compatible.
    Greetings to you and Happy Printing!
