Mosquito

Slice Engineering Mosquito

By re-imagining how a hotend is designed and structured from the ground up. The materials in each part of The Mosquito Hotend™ have been hand selected to perform a specific task to optimize your printer’s performance with three goals in mind: lightning speed, beautiful resolution, and increased durability.

The Mosquito Hotend™ is adaptable to virtually any printer, so by swapping one component, you gain the high performance benefits of a printer worth thousands more. Since The Mosquito Hotend™ (designed for beauty) and Mosquito Magnum™ (designed for speed) are the same length, any combination of these hotends can be mounted to one carriage. So you can switch between high-flow and high-precision in the same print.

Oh yeah, and you can change the nozzle with one hand.

Should I get the Mosquito™ or the Copperhead™?

The Mosquito™ and the Copperhead™ share our Bimetallic Heat Break™ technology, are both designed for high performance applications, and are beautifully designed and machined in America; but the similarities end there. The Copperhead™ is a traditional style hotend aimed at reducing heat creep and improving high-temperature performance. It is the more budget-conscious option. The Mosquito™ has a radical design featuring a protective roll cage around the most thermally efficient heat break (85%!) available on the market. It allows for cold, one handed nozzle changes. Both options improve performance, so the choice is yours!
