A bi-metal heat break, consisting of copper threads and surgical stainless steel tubing is a pretty interesting concept that can potentially add quite some performance to your 3D printer. Let me show you how I was able to more than double the extrusion capability of my Ender-3 what happened when I first cheaped out and bought a knock-off part and how I was pleasantly surprised when I spent the money and got the genuine one from SliceEngineering! Let’s find out more!
