This is an all metal hotend upgrade kit for MK 10 style extruders. Thermal barrier tube is made from 2 different materials. The lower thermal break is made from stainless steel, and the colder upper part is made from aluminum. Stainless steel was used for thermal break because it offers low thermal conductivity, and aluminum was used for the upper portion because it has a lot better thermal conductivity, to carry away any heat from the filament. All metal hotend will let you print at much higher temperature than possible with original PTFE lined one. Another benefit of an all metal hotend design is more consistent melt chamber control. During slow extrusion rate, in PTFE lined hotend, 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 fast extrusion rate, PTFE tube doesn't have enough thermal conductivity to properly melt all the plastic coming out. On MK10 extruders that limitation happens around 60 mm/s, depending on nozzle size. All metal hotend solves this problem, plastic is surrounded by thermally conductive nozzle throughout its length.

Orifice size available: .2mm, .3mm, .4mm .5mm, .6mm, .8mm, 1mm, 1.2mm

      Extended 22.35mm (Thermal-tube) Mk10 All-metal Hot-end

      I was able to purchase and install a longer, pre-release version of the standard MK10 conversion kit. It works great and I'm extremely happy with the purchase.

      If you want to see a tutorial/review regarding this extended version, here's the video I made, regarding such:

      To short for QIDI X Max

      Great design but it is about 10-12 mm too short for a QIDI X MAX. There causes a large gap between the extruder outlet to the start of the all metal down tube that the filament needs to travese. Also the diameter of the down tube is a little too small where it slides into the heat break. There is a lot of slop in the fit. Needs a lot of thermal paste to make sure it does not get two hot.

      Sorry to hear that it did not work well for you. Unfortunately this kit is not compatible with QIDI X MAX and that is why it is not listed in the 'Fit' tab.

      Really Impressed with product quality

      The product arrived packed perfectly with individual parts such as heat sink paste in its own sealed syringe type holder. Presentation was extremely well done. Classic quality product

      great but not

      I love the upgrade the only down side is the length of the upper tube it isn't very long so I have to have it really low in the block which allows it to back up and have to be completely taken apart to clean on my qidi Ifast I just wish it was longer
