Changing the nozzle with the Olsson block

Recommended Posts


I just started the UM2 today with the Olsson block that I mounted with the 0,8 nozzle...

My first printing...Amazing of course !

I am not too sure to have really grasp the right conditions to change the nozzle ? I understood the nozzle should be hot, I imagine the material has to be removed ?

I didn't manage to find any clear instruction...probably because I didn't search correctly ;-)))

Thanks a lot,

You need to change it while it's hot.

I normally go to the move material screen. This heats the nozzle and you can retract it a little if you prefer.

Change the nozzle when up to temp then insert new one. Then you can prime it to make sure it's working good before you try to print.

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
