Micro Swiss MK8 All Metal Hot End Upgrade for Creality 3D Printers
This works with the threaded heat sink (red finned portion of the hot-end).
If you have the newer smooth bore heat break (identified by 2 screws holding the heater block to the heat sink), Please check the "Heat Sink Needed?" box above
This is for higher temperature filaments like ABS, Nylon, Poly Carbonate and some PETG varieties. If you plan on only using PLA, the stock hot end is sufficient.
Please watch our install video and read all the information about using an all metal hot end. We also recommend to start with a .6mm nozzle. It allows you to print with detail at .2mm layer height while going tall and fast at .45mm! Be sure to select your nozzle size when ordering. The default size is .6mm
Benefits to go All Metal:
- Lets you print at much higher temperatures than possible with PTFE line hotend
- Consistent melt chamber control
- Faster extrusion rates
- Much lower retraction amount
- Wear resistant
- Low maintenance
