A question for OLSSON BLOCK

Recommended Posts

Hello there, @swq0603 @Labern

And hopefully somebody from support is reading this as well.

This is still a very fresh topic, so I thought I would pop advice and my question here about installing and buying the Olsson block.

The trouble is; Ultimaker is advertising with it on their site (see the picture I uploaded) Or should I better say was selling it? In the shop I can not find it anywhere. The Olsson block including the extra nozzles is nowhere to be found ....the page I uploaded here with a screenshot, can be seen HERE. Strange right?! Or am I missing something here, or not looking good enough maybe?

I know 3dsolex sells the OLSSON BLOCK and probably some other resellers do as well. But 3dsolex only sells with one 0.40mm Nozzle. With them you can choose to buy it with or without the toolkit as well. For a very reasonable price by the way it seems. At 3dsolex they also sell the PTFE coupler RING wich prevents the PTFE coupler from deforming for a longer time. If your about to mount the Olsson block, you would best also buy this ring and do it the right way all at once.

This still leaves me puzzled with the mysteriously dissapeared Olsson block from the Ultimaker shop webpages from Ultimaker. Where they sell the Olsson block with the extra Nozzeles. Can anybody tell me or explain? Cause I would like the one with 4 nozzles.

On the 3dSolex website you'll find a list of local dealers. Flagship stores have the full program, including nozzles. But it's up to the individual stores what sets they offer.

Yeah not sure what's going on there.

Yes I would recommend looking at 3d solex or one of there on sellers as you can also get the I2k or new coupler I2k set that can handle 300deg. 3d solex does have a nozzle pack that you can buy but you may end up with two 0.4mm nozzles, not a bad thing as you just use one for a different material.

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
