This is an all metal hotend upgrade kit for Flashforge Finder and Flashforge Guider 2S. All metal hotend will let you print at a much higher temperature than possible with the original PTFE-lined one. Another benefit of an all-metal hotend design is more consistent melt chamber control. During a slow extrusion rate, in PTFE lined hotend, the transition zone from solid to molten plastic tends to creep upward creating more stringy prints. With all metal design, a transition zone is always constant, being located right at the heat break. With a fast extrusion rate, the PTFE tube doesn’t have enough thermal conductivity to properly melt all the plastic coming out. All metal hotend solves this problem, plastic is surrounded by a thermally conductive nozzle throughout its length.
Suitable for the following 3D printers:
- FlashForge Finder
- FlashForge Inventor 2
- FlashForge Guider 2 (Older version, without metal plate over the heater block)
- FlashForge Guider 2S
- Dremel 3D40 Idea Builder
