Designed with Flexible Materials in Mind

The Bondtech LGX Shortcut Mosquito's main feature is a 23mm shorter filament path than the standard Slice Engineering Mosquito® Hotend.

Pairing the LGX Shortcut Mosquito with the LGX eXtruder forms a printhead that will excel in printing ALL of the most common materials - especially soft and flexible 3D printer filaments.

The LGX Shortcut Mosquito Printhead only supports 1.75mm filament.

Main Advantages

  • Robust printhead
  • One hand nozzle swap
  • Gives better access to softer materials
  • Enables you to print flexible and soft materials faster
  • Keeps the print-head small and light
  • Allows mounting in many different ways

Designed to be Flexible

The LGX Shortcut Mosquito Printhead includes a reversible heat sink that can be installed on the left or right hand side of the cold block. The heat sink also includes the hole pattern for attaching 40×40 fans.

Cooling Down the Heat Break

Bondtech's tests suggest a 4010 fan is enough to cool down the cold block and the cold zone of the heat break, even with such small contact surface to the heat sink. In case you have an application where additional cooling is required, try using a 4020 fan or 2 LGX heat sinks, one on each side.
