* Note: 2x50w heaters will need a separate 24v SSR ( solid state relay) to run as 100w at 24v is high current for the printer boards hotend supply. These hotends can also just run one single 50w heater as well.
One of the primary concerns with material extrusion based 3D printing (commonly referred to as FDM or FFF) is speed. While FDM is certainly faster than hand sculpting an object, it is slower than some traditional manufacturing methods on a per part basis. This is especially true for large parts. A large print could take 48 hours or more for a 3D printer to complete, assuming that the print is completed correctly the first time, and no rework is required!
So why is FDM so slow? Answer: flow rate capacity (ability to melt and extrude filament fast enough) and kinematics (physical limitations of machine motion related to the mass of the print head). Previous attempts to overcome these limitations resulted in printing processes that traded quality and resolution for speed. Slice Engineering has eliminated that trade off through design by thermal optimization, simultaneously addressing the issues of flow rate, resolution, and mass.
Since entering the scene in 2018, Slice has led the global FDM industry in hotend technology development with the Mosquito® and Copperhead™ product lines, and we have no plans of slowing down. The newly announced Magnum+™ hotend is the latest extension of the Mosquito product line and is the first hotend designed from the ground up with industrial users and high flow needs in mind. Magnum+ is not just applying DIY techniques to extend the melt zone, but rather the development of an entirely new modality for high speed FDM printing, optimized around the melting characteristics of thermoplastics.
To put it bluntly, Magnum+ is the highest performing hotend on the market today. Scroll down to learn more about how you can configure your own Magnum+ with a variety of options, download our white paper on flow rate testing, and sign up to be notified when Magnum+ launches.

Mosquito® Magnum+™ Health and Safety Warnings and Release of Liability
General Machining and Fabrication Equipment Safety Warnings
WARNING: Read all safety warnings and all instructions. Failure to follow the warnings and instructions may result in electric shock, fire, and/or serious injury.
SAVE ALL WARNINGS AND INSTRUCTIONS FOR FUTURE REFERENCE.
- Work area safety:
- Keep the work area clean and well-lit. Cluttered or dark areas invite accidents.
- Do not operate 3D printers in explosive atmospheres, such as in the presence of flammable liquids, gases, or dust. 3D printers create heat which may ignite dust or fumes.
- Keep children and bystanders away while operating a 3D printer. Distractions can cause you to lose control of the 3D printer.
- Electrical safety:
- 3D printer plugs must match the outlet. Never modify the plug in any way. Do not use any adapter plugs with earthed (grounded) power tools. Unmodified plugs and matching outlets will reduce the risk of electric shock.
- Avoid body contact with earthed or grounded surfaces such as pipes, radiators, ranges, and refrigerators. There is an increased risk of electric shock if your body is earthed or grounded.
- Do not expose 3D printers to rain or wet conditions. Water entering a 3D printer will increase the risk of electric shock.
- Do not abuse the cord. Never use the cord for carrying, pulling or unplugging the 3D printer. Keep the cord away from heat, oil, sharp edges, or moving parts. Damaged or entangled cords increase the risk of electric shock.
- When operating a 3D printer with an extension cord, only use cords suitable for the applicable power load. The use of a cord suitable for the applicable power load reduces the risk of electric shock and fire.
- If operating a 3D printer in a damp location is unavoidable, use a residual current device (RCD) protected supply. The use of an RCD reduces the risk of electric shock.
- Personal safety:
- Stay alert, watch what you are doing, and use common sense when operating a 3D printer. Do not use a 3D printer while you are tired or under the influence of drugs, alcohol or medication. A moment of inattention while operating a 3D printer may result in serious personal injury.
- Use personal protective equipment. Always wear eye protection. Protective equipment such as dust masks, gloves, or protective clothing appropriate to the conditions will reduce personal injuries.
- Prevent unintentional starting. Ensure the switch is in the off-position before connecting to a power source, picking up, or handling components of a 3D printer.
- Remove all metal objects, adjusting key or wrench before turning the 3D printer on. A metal object, wrench, or key can conduct electricity as well as heat which may result in personal injury, equipment damage, or fire.
- Do not overreach. Keep proper footing and balance at all times. This risks injury in unexpected situations.
- Dress properly. Do not wear loose clothing or jewelry. Keep your hair, clothing, and gloves away from moving parts. Loose clothes, jewelry, or long hair can be caught in moving parts.
- Devices for the collection and extraction of dust, when connected and properly used, can reduce dust-related hazards.
- 3D printer use and care:
- Do not force the 3D printer to perform beyond its rated power output or temperature capabilities. Use the correct 3D printer for your application. The correct 3D printer will do the job better and safer at the parameters for which it was designed.
- Do not use the 3D printer if the power switch does not turn it on and off. Any 3D printer that cannot be controlled with the power switch is dangerous and must be repaired.
- Disconnect the plug from the power source before making any adjustments, changing accessories, or storing the 3D printer. Such preventive safety measures reduce the risk of starting the power tool accidentally.
- Store idle 3D printers out of the reach of children and do not allow persons unfamiliar with 3D printers or these instructions to operate the power tool. 3D printers are dangerous in the hands of untrained users.
- Maintain the 3D printer. Check for misalignment or binding of moving parts, breakage of parts, and any other condition that may affect the 3D printer’s operation. If damaged, have the 3D printer repaired before use. Accidents can result from poorly maintained 3D printers.
- Use the 3D printer, accessories, and nozzles, etc. in accordance with these instructions, taking into account the working conditions and the work to be performed. Use of the 3D printer for operations different from those intended could result in a hazardous situation.
- Have your 3D printer serviced by a qualified repair person using only identical replacement parts. Doing so will ensure that the safety of the power tool is maintained.
