The FlowTech™ Hotend is a new generation hotend line from Micro Swiss. Its unique design eliminates common hotend issues such as leaking nozzle seal and complex nozzle swaps.

Keeping with our philosophy, the FlowTech hotend is designed to be an easy drop-in upgrade for each 3D printer model. This edition is designed for Creality K1C. Stock z-height, build volume and firmware remains unchanged.

  • Leak-Proof Nozzle:
    Tired of messy nozzle leaks that ruin your prints and waste filament? FlowTech Hotend combines nozzle and thermal break into one permanently sealed assembly that ensures a leak-proof hotend.

  • Cold Nozzle Change:
    Swapping out nozzles used to be a time-consuming and potentially hazardous task. With a FlowTech Hotend, nozzle changes are effortless, and there's no need for hot tightening, and you can do it with just one hand.

  • High-Flow Characteristics:
    Ceramic cylindrical heater and 28.6mm melt zone provides excellent volumetric flow rate.

  • All-Metal Design:
    Built to last! FlowTech hotend features an all-metal design that can handle most modern 3D printing filaments. The entire hotend is machined and assembled in-house, with quality control performed at multiple stages during the manufacturing process. At the end, each hotend undergoes a full thermal cycling test before it is packaged.

  • 300°C Max Temperature:
    This hotend is rated at 300°C temperature with a properly tuned NTC thermistor for each specific printer. This particular edition is perfectly tuned for Creality K1C so no firmware changes are needed.

So far

Look, I've had it installed for 2 weeks. The factory one this replaced worked fine for 2 weeks. I'm not saying it's not a good product. And I haven't had any problems with it so far... but I can't give it 5 stars because I just don't know yet.

I love the hotend. The nozzles, not so much.

I love the hotend itself. I feel like it’s made very well. The nozzles i’m not a fan of.

The nozzles are ridiculously expensive. I’ve received 2 clogs so far where I can’t extrude nor retract. I contacted customer support to get them replaced but instead they sent me a video in how to possibly fix it myself which I really don’t have time for.

If you’re gonna charge $17 for a nozzle, make them do they don’t clog.


Very easy to install. Instructions were excellent. Great printing results using Nylon-CF.

MUST HAVE for K1 Max

The Micro Swiss Hot End for K1C is the replacement for the NEWER K1 Max Printers. After a meltdown on the original Hot End that came with the K1 Max, the heat sensor wires were ruined, and Creality didnt respond for over two weeks. I bought this hot end after watching Filament Friday video on K1C and it was delivered in two days and installed in 10 minutes and I was back up and running. Will replace my hot ends in my Ender 3 and Ender 3 S1 Plus with Micro Swiss. I also bought some of their hardened steel nozzles in three sizes and they are of the BEST quality. For nozzles and hot ends, it will be Micro Swis for me from now on. I hope they continue to make more quality parts to fit Creality machines. Not only is their quality outstanding, but the Customer Service is EXCELLENT!

Great K1C upgrade, works right away, nozzles are easy to change out

I got the FlowTech hotend as an upgrade for my K1C with a 0.6mm hardened steel nozzle and a brass plated 0.4mm nozzle. Both nozzles work great, very clear instructions on how to install, highly recommend all around
