Heat Break Troubleshooting
The Copperhead™ is a low-cost, open source hotend option that can handle heat, i.e. heat creep.
Replace your factory model hotend with the Copperhead to improve your 3D printer’s performance and reduce jams, giving you a smooth print every time.
Advanced material technology
Unlike most materials, plastics do not have a clean transition from solid to liquid during melting.
As the filament moves through the hotend, it heats up and reaches the material’s glass transition temperature (Tg), entering a semi-solid, semi-liquid, “sticky” state.
While in this state, the plastic responds to applied forces like a wet noodle, resulting in undesirable printing effects such as reduced resolution, smearing and clogging.
An efficient heat break reduces the physical distance during which the plastic is in its Tg, and therefore improves the performance of the 3D printer.
Slice Engineering’s Bimetallic Heat Break is the only heat break designed using thermal imaging to optimise heat transfer.
