With the Mosquito Hotend from Slice Engineering making big waves in the Hobbyist 3D Printing scene, it’s not too surprising that some Makers are feeling left out, as despite being an incredible hotend upgrade that almost no other competitors can beat, it is rather pricey, and may be out of reach or tough to justify unless you print professionally. This is why we’re so excited with the cool The Copperhead DIY Hotend solution that Slice Engineering have come out with, which is designed to be modular in style and allow Makers to purchase particular 3D Upgrades when and as they need them, to eventually build a true hotend masterpiece for their 3D Printer.

This particular component is one of three parts that comprise the Copperhead DIY Hotend, and this part is The Copperhead Hot Block, which is primarily responsible for heating up and producing the “Melt Zone” where 3D Filaments turn molten before being extruded. This is quite an important job, as bad Heater Blocks can easily cause clogs or other extrusion problems, and this is why we’re delighted to see that a lot of hard work and serious design efforts have gone into making this amazing Copperhead Hot Block.

The Copper Hot Block is made from High-Grade Copper Alloy, and is capable of much higher temperatures than most standard heater blocks before getting soft or failing in other ways. It is built to fit the entire Copperhead Heat Break range, including all variants, but is also compatible with the standard M6 thread on Heat Breaks based on the classic E3D Design, as well as a few others too. This means that you can choose to purchase this part as a standalone upgrade first, and then upgrade the other parts on your hotend later, making The Copperhead DIY Hotend a far more accessible and affordable hotend solution for Makers who want that premium print quality, but without the premium price tag.
