This All Metal Hotend Conversion Kit is a drop-in upgrade for Creality 3D Printers, including the Ender 3, Ender 5 and CR-10.
As a direct replacement for the stock hardware, installation requires no additional parts or modifications to use. It bolts up to the original mounting plate, reusing the same heater cartridge and thermistor wiring for a quick 5 minute setup.
The improved aluminum cooling block design offers better heat dissipation, removing the need for PTFE lining inside of the thermal barrier tube.
Instead, a polished Titanium Alloy heatbreak is used to replace the traditional stainless steel, which has considerably lower thermal conductivity than its counterpart. This creates a sharply defined point of separation between hot and cold zones, minimizing the chance for heat creep and clogs.
0.4mm Brass nozzle is included as standard, ideal for basic materials. Hardened A2 Tool Steel is recommended for abrasive filaments such as wood, carbon fiber, glow in the dark and metal filled.

Needed to replace the PFTE lined stock hotends for my ender 3 pros, so I decided to give these a shot based off how pleased I was with the LED kits. I didn't quite know what to expect, but once I got these dialed in, it was smooth sailing. Glad I made this purchase!
I've had my Ender 3 for about 3 years and this is by far the best upgrade I've done because it finally allows me to move beyond PLA.
I happened to find this product while searching for something else for my printer and I bought it on impulse along with a roll of PETG.
I should have done this years ago! It's opened up a whole new world.
This is a good, cheap, and easy upgrade and I recommend it highly for anyone owning an Ender 3.
This was a great and cost effective upgrade over the stock hot end. Easy to install, if you know what you are doing and watch a couple videos.
My only complaint is that the little wrench that came with it doesn't fit anything on the part. What is the purpose of this wrench?
if your using stock ender 3 tools, you need different tools, like a 7mm wrench that is not included.
When I first ordered this hotend it was by mistake. I searched "microswiss hot end" and this popped up in the shopping section of Google. I was super sad when I realized I had ordered the wrong item. I expressed my concern to a Facebook group I am part of and many said they had ordered this piece and had good luck.
Boy were they right! I had such a fantastic experience with my new hot end I purchased a second and am taking delivery today!
I outfitted my hotend with a plated tool steel nozzle. I have printed PLA, ABS, carbon reinforced PLA and nylon. The hot end works great and prevents oozing and clogging issues. It stays super cool, bolts on easy.. everything I could have hoped for.
Let's call this experience a happy accident.
Thanks Gulfcoast Robotics for a great deal on an excellent product!
