A piece in excess ! Where does-it go ?

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

Happy to join the community !

I had a hard time today installing the olson block on my UM2...As many I broke the thermal sensor (it came out...but only the wires !) and at the end of the day I have a piece and I don't know where it goes !

The internal diameter is about 6 mm and it has to be inserted in a hole of about 7,7 mm...

Can anybody confirm where it should go ?

Thanks a ton,

D

That part isn't compatible with the Olsson block. Don't worry about it. Just put it aside. On the older style blocks (UM2 original blocks) it goes around the nozzle above the heat shield. It's purpose is when you have a disaster such that your printed part comes loose on the bed and is being dragged around the bed and you get a huge blob of filament after a few hours. This blob can get up inside the fan shroud.

This is rare and has never happened to me but when it does it is difficult to clean up. The part above helps keep the blob below the fan shroud where it is easier to clean.
