The Mosquito Hotend is... wild!

  • เผยแพร่เมื่อ 1 เม.ย. 2019
  • Slice Engineering are making a hotend with a radical (and logical) design change over what we've been using on our 3D printers!

    That hotend is just a little cheaper than my first printer!

    This will be instrumental in making PEEK, Ultem, PEKK, and other materials possible for a lot less cash than what current PEEK printers sell for. I wish more printers used these nozzles. Just the fact that one doesn't risk shearing off wires makes this worth it, especially if one changes nozzles for various widths often.

    This just shows how much innovation we still have to go in the 3d printing realm, even with the technology we all know and love.

    Could be a great idea to have perfect alignement in dual hotend setup !

    I agree that nozzles are too hard to change. So hard that I ended up buying multiple entire printers to have 0.4 and 0.8, but the competition is to get an e3D and make it modular and just replace the entire tool head rather than just change the nozzle.

    Looks awesome. Paired with their custom style Bondtech BMG, I am sure it is quite the setup

    Strongly considering buying one of these. I replaced the E3D V6 in my i3 MK3 with a Volcano, which has been working pretty well, except for the heatbreak coming loose due to nozzle changes.

    I like this. Wonder if there is much deviation in length after a nozzle change.

    They have a pretty smart design to be sincere, but I really think they do not need a patent for this :)).

    The high temp capability is really awesome. I also dig that it doesn't need as much retraction. I feel like they are on to something...

    I think this is a really important step in the right direction. Can't believe e3d never realized that structural heatbreaks were a silly idea.

    The low thermal conductivity of stainless steel is underrated

    this is an interesting take on a hotend!

    nice nozzle !! it seems very promising!

    I have the Mosquito on my printer. Absolutely incredible engineering and quality. Like Chris said about unscrewing/screwing in the nozzle, that is my biggest gripe about E3D hotends, what he said is spot on and what they did on the Mosquito to solve that is my favorite part about it. On top of that, it's lighter and more compact than the V6 hotend. The quality of machining is top notch and nothing comes close to it. The hotend also handles extremely high flow, I print with it with PLA at 150mm/s with 0.3mm layers with zero issues. It's incredible. I plan on getting another one for another printer and printing PEEK/Ultem.

    been using it on my ender 5 for about a month, its been a great upgrade, its not cheap but its doing better than i imagined

    Nice idea, I found changing nozzles frustrating on the CR10 so I made a quick change Volcano hotend the "MAD MAX V8 interceptor" 😆😂

    Logical indeed. How did no one think to set up a hotend like that until now?!

    Looking good, a very interesting Hotend
