Is there a maximum temperature rating for the Slice Engineering 50W Heater Cartridges?
Both the 12V and 24V 50W Heater Cartridges are rated to 500°C. Actual achievable temperatures will vary based on a number of factors, including whether the heater is operating in an enclosed or open air 3D printer.
Printing with high-temperature materials, such as ASA, PC, PEEK and PEI (Ultem)
One of the many benefits of the Mosquito™ and Copperhead™ hotends is that they are designed with high-temperature materials, such as ASA, PC, PEEK and PEI (Ultem), in mind. However, successful 3D printing relies on multiple parameters beyond simply ...
How do I update my firmware to be compatible with the High Temperature Thermistor?
450°C High Temperature Thermistor The 450°C High Temperature Thermistor works natively with Marlin 2.0, Duet/RepRapFirmware, and Klipper. Alternatively, you can find the Resistance-Temperature (RT) table on our High Temperature Thermistor page and do ...
How do you secure the temperature sensor (thermistor) and the heater cartridge in the Mosquito™ Hot Block?
Both are secured with Boron Nitride (BN) Paste. BN paste is required on the temperature sensor (thermistor) for accurate measurement. BN paste is also desirable on the heater cartridge and nozzle threads. The retaining screws on either end of the hot ...
Mosquito™ Magnum+ Dual Heater Configuration for RepRapFirmware 3.0+
The first method of configuring a dual heater Mosquito™ Magnum+ is using two heaters in parallel, acting as a single heater with double the power. The second configuration involves each heater being tied to its own extruder heater output and then ...
What's the difference between the 50W Heater Cartridge and the Industrial Heater?
The 50W Heater Cartridge and Industrial Heater will both provide a nominal 50 watts of heating power, but they do have a few differences. They differ slightly in their construction and how the wires are terminated. The 50W Heater Cartridge has ...
