Heater/block change to change the nozzle size. Anyway. Sexy!

I think 700ºC is kinda overdoing it for PLA... ;)

What materials will it unlock?

And if it is that small (small heatzone), will it be able to print with high speeds?

Peek and a few others. But I'm guessing 1 roll of filament will cost the same as a new printer.

Wow, that is some impressive thermodynamics on a print head if it can reach those temperatures easily.

But why? :p Perhaps burning your nozzle clean?

Example of some materials that in theory would be possible. Though in practice I don't think making magma would be high on my to do list lol.

Melting point of Tin = 231.9C

Melting point of lead = 327.5C

Melting point of aluminium alloy = 463 to 671C

Melting point of aluminium = 660.3C

Glass depending on composition melts at approximately = 500c to 1650c +

Natural rock depending on composition turns to magma at = 700c to 1300c +

Keep in mind the more temperature we apply and depending on the material the off gassing could be very toxic. Not to mention any toxic residue left by some metals.
