1730 Full Metal Hotend by Kai Parthy

The 1730 Full Metal Hotend came into existence by a unique cooperation between renown filament developer Kai Parthy and the team behind 3D-Printer Manufacturer ReprapUniverse. With 1730 it is possible to print 1.75 mm or 3 mm filament with the same hot end while its innovative modular design is leakage proofed and optimized for printing standard filaments, special filaments and high-temperature filaments.

1730 features:

  • Optimized Cooling: Optimized thermal barrier. Water cooling is not necessary
  • Short Heating Zone: Very short heating zone inside the extra-long nozzle
  • Leakage Proof: The 1730 Full Metal Hotend is physicaly leakage proof and not using any PEEK or PTFE tubing
  • Multiple Nozzle Diameters: Multiple Nozzle Diamaters available for 1.75 mm and 3 mm filament
  • Fully Assembled: The 1730 Full Metal Hotend comes fully assembled. Just mount it and start printing
  • Improved Feeding: Reduced feeding friction which is optimal for soft and brittle materials (e.g. PU)
  • Energy Efficient: Effective use of energy. Short heating-up time
  • 500 °C Ready: 500 °C tested expert module will be available in future as add-on
  • Print faster: With the 1730 Full Metal Hotend we have achieved shorter retract values. This greatly improves overall printing speed

Price is currently unknown and the Kickstarter campaign will be launched soon. it looks very interesting and I would like to see some reviews and tests.
