What is the Expected Lifetime of the Hot End Assembly?

There are several factors that will impact the lifetime of a hot end assembly which can lead to filament leakage. Some of these factors include leaving the machine at temperature for too long, improper print settings, or printing at improper speeds.

Low-temperature (ABS) vs. high-temperature (PEEK): If you are printing at high-temperature most of the time, you can expect your hot end assembly to experience quicker wear.

Note

The expected lifetime of a hot end assembly is 100-200 hours of printing service.
