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.

    • "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.
