The Hot Stays Hot and the Cool Stays Cool

The core to the Mosquito Hotend is in the separated module design. The frame at the cold end, which feeds the filament down, is separated entirely from the heater block by four metal support rods. This creates a spacious air gap between the two modules, where a small, copper heatsink guides the filament down into the heater block, and a small, mounted fan keeps just the right amount of air flowing through.

By combining each of these design choices, heat creep has been effectively eliminated. The heat will stay contained just where it needs to be for clean, efficient printing, in an elegant and compact form factor.

Fan Fandom

The Mosquito comes with a tiny fan that perfectly mounts on the side and pushes just the right amount of air across the copper heatsink and away from the print area. Because it has so much less air to displace, it's much quieter than most hotends. This efficient design results in a whisper quiet performance that will allow your work space to be more pleasant and appealing!

Easy Come, Easy Go

An additional, exciting benefit of the four-rod design is that the heater block is completely stationary, so inserting and removing your nozzle doesn't also move the heater block! With no need to hold the block in place, removing and installing your nozzle just became much faster and easier!

Smaller Hotend to Increase Your Build Size

All of these incredible design elements are achieved in less space than traditional hotends, so by installing a Mosquito Hotend, you actually open up more vertical build volume on your printer! The only downside to this amazing new tool is that you don't have it--yet!
