An FDM 3D printer without a hotend is like a car without wheels or a lamp without a bulb. The hotend is an active and crucial component, the business end of the extruder, the part that actually melts the filament and allows it to be deposited, layer-by-layer, into the form of a 3D object. It goes without saying then, that the quality and features of your 3D printer’s hotend can affect nearly every aspect of the 3D print, from how much plastic can be printed at a time, to the maximum layer height and level of detail, to what materials you can even 3D print with in the first place.

Many commercial 3D printers already come with hotends that are unique to the model, however there is a growing market of third party, interchangeable hotends that offer various capabilities and expanded 3D printing possibilities. The latest of these to hit the market is the DyzEND-X, the second-generation all-metal 3D printer hotend by Canadian startup DYZE DESIGN.

The DyzEND-X comes with several key features that, according to the company, allow it to outperform the competition, offering better durability, precision, bigger printing volumes, and overall higher 3D printing quality and efficiency.

First and foremost, the all-metal structure, made from titanium and hard stainless steel, allows for fast heating up to 500°C. Whereas many common hotends max out at around 300°C and are therefore limited to processing PLA or ABS, the DyzEND-X can 3D print with just about any plastic filament on the market, including abrasive (e.g. carbon fiber reinforced) and flexible materials (e.g. Ninjaflex).

DYZE DESIGN has also created a ‘jam free’ technology that prevents the filament from jamming up and obstructing the hotend.

For convenience and accessibility, the DyzEND-X is Bowden and Grove mount ready and compatible with reprap and many pre-assembled 3D printers (think ROBO3D R1, Prusa i3, Ultimaker, and more). It also comes pre-installed with a hard 100% stainless steel nozzle that can easily be swapped out at room temperature, further increasing the hotend’s lifespan.

Finally, it is a lightweight and compact component optimized by a team of 3D printing specialists for durability and precision, and is available in either 12V or 24V, with nozzle sizes ranging from 0.2mm up to 1.20 mm.

A newcomer to the 3D printing scene, Montreal-based DYZE DESIGN was founded  with the goal of creating high performance parts that will improve your 3D printer. Since 2015, the company has created and launched two major products, the original DyzEND hotend and the DyzeXtruder, as well as a range of 3D printer accessories (conical washers, extension cables, stepper motors and replacement nozzles). The company also offers professional plastic 3D printing services via DYZE MAKER.

Along the way, DYZE DESIGN has been recognized by the Canadian manufacturing industry for its technological advancements. The startup won the National Bank grand prize in the Accélérateur contest, was selected amongst the Fall 2015 laureates by Montreal Inc Foundation, and has been chosen by Quebec’s International Youth Offices to attend REAL2016, a tech entrepreneurship summit taking place in San Francisco.

With the DyzEND-X, the young Canadian company hopes to further advance its name on the international 3D printing market by providing a top-of-the-line product that it believes is “the ultimate solution in order to obtain the highest 3D printing quality.” Currently, the DyzEND-X all-metal 3D printer hotend is available to purchase for US$99.60 and ships directly from Montreal, Canada.

i own a dyzend x and a few e3dv6's. id recommend the e3dv6 as it has a better surface finish and doesnt ooze like the dyzendx does due to its larger melt zone. also the thermisters provided with dyzendx have some propblems reading accurately due to the modular wiring setup the designer opted for over a solid wire from hotend to controller
