Olsson block nozzle problems

Recommended Posts

Having fitted a new nozzle to my Olsson block last week the printer under extruded.

I fitted the original one again and it printed OK.

Suspicious, I have tried to pass 0.3 micro drill through the new nozzle and it will not go.

I believe these spare nozzles (which I bought last June) are 0.25 and not the 0.4 I ordered.

I am going to attempt to drill them out.

Others have posted about under extrusion with the Olsson block and I believe they should check this possibility.

There is one dot on the nozzle.

Since my original post I have found another thread https://ultimaker.com/en/community/8689-custom-heater-block-to-fit-e3d-nozzle-on-ultimaker-2-the-olsson-block page 30 which refers to considerable confusion regarding the nozzle markings and the fact that some wrong sizes were sent out.

I must be the recipient of some of that batch.

    • "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.
