Creality Ender 7 Bondtech LGX Lite + Mosquito Magnum Hot End Kit
The Creality Ender 7 3D printer is a platform that has a lot of potential. However, there are a few design elements of the printer that could use some improvements to allow the printer to realize its full potential as a high speed machine.
The Creality hot end is advertised as a higher capacity / higher flow unit - and this may be true compared to an Ender 3 - but this hot end cannot compare to aftermarket upgrades such as the Slice Engineering Mosquito Magnum.
Based on my volumetric flow rate tests and my practical experience with this machine, 15mm^3/s is the higher end of the max flow rate for the Ender 7. For comparison, the Mosquito Magnum can deliver more than 30mm^3/s !
Therefore if you want to get the most out of your Ender 7 and run higher print speeds or larger nozzles, the investment into a higher flow hot end will easily pay for itself in time saved.
The transition from Bowden tube to direct drive (Bondtech LGX Lite) will also increase your filament control by eliminating the 'spring' inherent with a Bowden tube setup. I have noticed much less stringing and oozing when printing in PETG.
This upgrade kit includes all of the 3D printed parts necessary to fit the Bondtech LGX lite and Slice Engineering Mosquito Magnum hot end plus the additional hardware necessary. All parts are printed in carbon fiber PETG material.
What is included in the kit:
- LGX Lite Mount
- Mosquito Magnum Mount
- Fan Guard
- Part Cooling Fan Shroud
- Optional: CR Touch Bracket
Note: You can optionally add a bracket to attach a CR Touch module to the carriage. It is not necessary for this install but will allow you use the autobed levelling feature of this machine. Add the bracket in the product options.
