The Mosquito hotend is what started the Slice Engineering journey. Designed to have a small form factor and optimized heat transfer, the Mosquito uses the highest grade materials available, all engineered and built for performance here in the USA.
Mosquito is built to accommodate standard 6 mm heater cartridges, 3 mm thermistors, and MK8 style (M6 thread) nozzles. We also highly recommend the use of Capricorn XS tubing during installation to achieve the best printing results.
There are two variants of the Mosquito hotend available:
Mosquito standard - optimized for heat transfer, low mass, and small retracts.
Mosquito Magnum - same tiny form factor as Mosquito standard, but with an proximally extended melt zone for high volumetric flow rate.
