As the mechanical engineers among us will have learned many times throughout their careers, if you want to create something that is both durable and lightweight, you are going to have to spend a fair amount of time on the design and material choice. This is fortunately something that Slice Engineering knows all too well, and they prove it with the finely crafted and carefully manufactured components that comprise The Mosquito Hotend – the lightest hotend on the market that doesn’t compromise on quality – and this is what makes The Mosquito Heat Sink such an impressive component.

The Mosquito Heat Sink is quite a unique “Cooling Tower” that offers more than just thermal sinking, but is actually designed with reasonably high strength and stability too. This is because The Mosquito Hotend uses a clever design that couples the heater block to the heat sink, rather than coupling it to the fragile heat break like in classic designs, and this almost completely eliminates any chances of damaging the heat break when performing simple tasks like nozzle changes or tightening. It does this by using the four thin-walled mounting tubes that are featured in the Mosquito Hot Block Hardware pack, while keeping the top of the Mosquito Heat Break captured and stabilised at the top.

Of course, because Slice Engineering are all about lightweight 3D Printer Upgrades, it makes sense that The Mosquito Heat Sink also features mounting holes for the awesome Bondtech BMG-M Extruder, which is one of the most lightweight extruders available, adapted to fit the tiny form factor of The Mosquito Hotend. It’s these small but very thoughtful design elements that demonstrate just how much hard work and engineering went into developing The Mosquito Hotend, and we must admit that this Mosquito Heat Sink may just be one of the most important yet overlooked parts on the entire assembly.
