We create engineering-grade components that unlock the full potential of material extrusion 3d printers. Trusted by NASA, the US Armed Forces, and Livermore National Lab, we push the boundaries of thermodynamics, enabling people to print their dreams.

Founded by two engineers with over 20 years of combined experience in design and manufacturing in the automation, medical device, power generation, and aviation industries, we’re certified geeks who live and breathe additive manufacturing. We are specialists in technology innovation, functional design, and high-performance solutions for extrusion-based additive manufacturing (FDM).

As a result of our research and innovation, we are now printing faster, with higher resolution, less complications, and using high-temp engineering grade plastics. Crucially, these advantages have been made accessible to the broader market, equipping a generation of basement manufacturers and young entrepreneurs that are using 3d printing to truly change the world.


  • Mosquito® Magnum+™
    The Magnum+™ hotend is designed from the ground up with industrial users and high flow needs in mind. Magnum+ is the development of an entirely new modality for high speed FDM printing, optimized around the melting characteristics of thermoplastics....


    Mosquito® Magnum+™

    Includes all of the industry-leading benefits of the Mosquito® product line, such as Bimetallic Heat Break™ technology, a 500 °C temperature rating, ability to print all filaments from basic PLA to medical-grade PAEK, and the rigid roll cage structure that enables our famous One-Handed Nozzle Change™...

    Thermally Optimized:

    • Filament contacts the hot block directly for maximum heat transfer efficiency
    • Enhanced structural strength, ideal for large format printers, and non-planar printing
    • Print PLA up to 88 mm3/s and ABS up to 91 mm3/s*
    • Boost speed without losing resolution† 
    • Tips the scales at just 30% heavier than a standard Mosquito, but with 3.5x the output

    Highly Configurable:

    • Choose air or liquid cooling options
    • Select Ø1.75 or Ø2.85 filament 
    • Expandable heater capacity, up to 100W
    • Redundant temperature sensor sockets
    • Optional 500 °C-rated nozzle insulator
    • Uses standard-length (12.5 mm) Vanadium™ and Bridgemaster™ nozzles for both Ø1.75 or Ø2.85 filament sizes

    What Is The Mosquito® Magnum+™?

    One of the primary concerns with material extrusion based 3D printing (commonly referred to as FDM or FFF) is speed. While FDM is certainly faster than hand sculpting an object, it is slower than some traditional manufacturing methods on a per part basis. This is especially true for large parts. A large print could take 48 hours or more for a 3D printer to complete, assuming that the print is completed correctly the first time, and no rework is required!

    So why is FDM so slow? Answer: flow rate capacity (ability to melt and extrude filament fast enough) and kinematics (physical limitations of machine motion related to the mass of the print head). Previous attempts to overcome these limitations resulted in printing processes that traded quality and resolution for speed. Slice Engineering has eliminated that trade off through design by thermal optimization, simultaneously addressing the issues of flow rate, resolution, and mass.

    Since entering the scene in 2018, Slice has led the global FDM industry in hotend technology development with the Mosquito® and Copperhead™ product lines, and we have no plans of slowing down. The newly announced Magnum+™ hotend is the latest extension of the Mosquito product line and is the first hotend designed from the ground up with industrial users and high flow needs in mind. Magnum+ is not just applying DIY techniques to extend the melt zone, but rather the development of an entirely new modality for high speed FDM printing, optimized around the melting characteristics of thermoplastics.
