Thanks to @ZestyTechnologies we now have a way to mount the Zesty Nimble™ extruder with the Mosquito Hotend™ onto the Creality/Ender platform using this printed adapter, which has a Mosquito compatible mounting pattern.
We’ve got another new adapter to show you. As always, this is a community sourced design. Huge thank you to Jerry Stegenga, for building yet another great adapter for getting the Mosquito Hotend™ on the Prusa machines. He’s now built an adapter for every printer Prusa has built. You can find a video this thing in action here. As always, you can find the adapter files on our Adapters page, or on Thingiverse.
Some of you have asked that the printable Mosquito Hotend™ model include a nozzle in the bottom to more easily set the Z-height on your printer build. Your wish is our command. A printable Mosquito Hotend™ with nozzle is now available for download on our website.
If you haven’t heard already, we have restocked our high temperature Thermistors and are now shipping the Nozzle Torque Wrench™ we launched at MRRF! The rotary slip mechanism on the Nozzle Torque Wrench™ is specifically geared for changing nozzles, with a 1.5 Nm torque specification. It’s also the perfect tool to do a cold, one-handed nozzle change on your #MosquitoHotend
Slice Engineering will be a Silver Sponsor at the Midwest Rep Rap Festival in Goshen, IN this year. We’ll also be sponsoring the RC demo derby, by giving a FREE Mosquito hotend to the #1 finisher. Come out and see us, and enjoy the awesome 3DP community party that is MRRF.
Big thank you to the amazing Marteinn Sigurdsson, better known as @3DPIceland, for designing this beautiful adapter to put the Bondtech BMG and Mosquito hotend on the Creality CR10s and Ender 3 printers. He even put together a nice video and made some sweet renderings of the design in Fusion 360. Check it all out on the Thingiverse page or our Adapters page, and be sure to subscribe to his Youtube channel for awesome videos about 3D Printing all sorts of cool things, like amazing landscapes of Iceland!
We’ve had a CAD model of the Mosquito hotend posted for a bit, but it wasn’t optimized for printing. From your feedback it was obvious that many of you wanted to print a physical version, not just play with it in CAD. So, behold! A printable version of the Mosquito Hotend is now available for you to print, and test fit on your printer.
We’ve created a new page on the website, that shows all of our current distributors/resellers across the US, Canada, Europe and the Middle East. Check them out, especially if you live outside the US!
A huge thanks goes out to Brian Peterson for building an awesome adapter for the Mosquito and Mosquito Magnum hotends to mate with the Duplicator 6 or Monoprice Ultimate. Talk about a flexible and creative creation! He even has a link on the Thingiverse page to get this adapter made out of aluminum if there is enough interest. So check out the link, and sign up!
We’ve re-stocked our high temperature thermistors! To go along with that, we have published the ADC table to our site. If you don’t want to mess with ADC tables, but want your favorite firmware/board to work with our thermistors out of the box, petition them to include the Slice High Temp Thermistor within factory settings! We’re working on getting it on all your favorite firmware.
Thanks to Tony Nunez (Twitter @casadelwhacos) we now have a mount for the Mosquito Hotend on the Creality CR-10S! Its pretty cool, so if you have a CR-10 you should definitely check it out, and pick up a #Mosquitohotend while you’re at it.
We’ve updated our website! It is now sleeker, sexier and (hopefully) better in every way!
The new site has actually been live for a little bit, but we wanted to work out some bugs before revealing our new baby. It’s a fresh, clean design start for us - like a writing on a new, blank sheet of paper.
Please check out the site, and drop us a line with feedback on things you like, or things that need to be fixed.
We attended #WMFNYC recently, and had a blast! Special shoutout to @ProtoPasta and @Mosiacmfg for a great time, and to @MidnightGiant for showcasing his awesome new sword.
We are attending the East Coast RepRap Festival June 23rd-24th! Come check out the Mosquito Magnum, a high temp, high flow rate hotend. We will be by the Derby Track. Don't forget to follow us on Twitter @SliceEngineer for updates!
We are attending Midwest Rep Rap Festival 2018, on March 23-25th, in Goshen, Indiana. It will be our official product launch for the Mosquito hotend, as well as the rest of our initial product line. We're super excited to be part of the show this year!
Hey everyone! For months, if you navigated to www.sliceengineering.com, you got a splash page that just said our site was a work in progress. Well, now it is finally live! We have several exciting products to offer, and quite a few more in development. Please explore the site!
