In 2018 Hotends LLC founded by Nicholas Stratton was formed to assume ownership of hotends.com. Hotends LLC has a renewed focus on innovation while maintaining a high-quality product, setting industry standards, and supporting the 3D community.

“I just want to provide great products that help people do what they set out to do – just print!” – Nick

Being involved with 3D printing for many years as a professional and a hobbyist, I brought one home as a kit. I knew I was hooked. Over time, it had challenges, and I learned to fix them. As much as I loved to tinker, I got to a point where I just wanted to print. So my mission became clear—find a better way.
