A question for OLSSON BLOCK

Posted (edited) · A question for OLSSON BLOCK

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.

      • Here it is. The new UltiMaker S7
        The UltiMaker S7 is built on the success of the UltiMaker S5 and its design decisions were heavily based on feedback from customers.
         
         
        So what’s new?
        The obvious change is the S7’s height. It now includes an integrated Air Manager. This filters the exhaust air of every print and also improves build temperature stability. To further enclose the build chamber the S7 only has one magnetically latched door.
         
        The build stack has also been completely redesigned. A PEI-coated flexible steel build plate makes a big difference to productivity. Not only do you not need tools to pop a printed part off. But we also don’t recommend using or adhesion structures for UltiMaker materials (except PC, because...it’s PC). Along with that, 4 pins and 25 magnets make it easy to replace the flex plate perfectly – even with one hand.
         
        The re-engineered print head has an inductive sensor which reduces noise when probing the build plate. This effectively makes it much harder to not achieve a perfect first layer, improving overall print success. We also reversed the front fan direction (fewer plastic hairs, less maintenance), made the print core door magnets stronger, and add a sensor that helps avoid flooding.
         

         
        The UltiMaker S7 also includes quality of life improvements:
        Reliable bed tilt compensation (no more thumbscrews) 2.4 and 5 GHz Wi-Fi A 1080p camera (mounted higher for a better view) Compatibility with 280+ Marketplace materials Compatibility with S5 project files (no reslicing needed) And a whole lot more  
        Curious to see the S7 in action?
        We’re hosting a free tech demo on February 7.
        It will be live and you can ask any questions to our CTO, Miguel Calvo.

      • UltiMaker Cura 5.3.0-Alpha 🎄 Tree Support Spotlight 🎄
        Are you a fan of tree support, but dislike the removal process and the amount of filament it uses? Then we would like to invite you to try this special release of UltiMaker Cura. Brought to you by our special community contributor @thomasrahm
         
        We generated a special version of Cura 5.2 called 5.3.0 Alpha + Xmas. The only changes we introduced compared to UltiMaker Cura 5.2.1 are those which are needed for the new supports. So keep in mind, this is not a sneak peek for Cura 5.3 (there are some really cool new features coming up) but a spotlight release highlighting this new version of tree supports.
