Which torque is correct for a nozzle swap?

Recommended Posts

Interested in feedback from people who successfully swap nozzles in their Olsson Block.

Ultimaker suggests tightening the nozzle with a torque wrench set to 1 - 1.5 Nm.

According to Anders Olsson, the torque wrench print will apply 0.25 - 0.5 Nm.

Does anyone with experience have feedback as to which setting is more reliable? Or does it not really matter?

I have printed the Anders torque wrench and have had no issues with leaking.

Ultimaker experienced some leaking when they were testing the Olsson Block before they sold it on there printers, so they recommend a higher torque setting.

I am using the old UM feeder and Roberts feeder. If you use the new geared feeder or something like the bondtech then it maybe more likely to leak with the higher pressures in the nozzle.

    • 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.
