Olsen block What watt heater comes with that, note my kit is an older one.

Recommended Posts

Are you referring to an Olsson block bought from 3dSolex (or from one of their resellers) or to the UM2+ upgrade kit from Ultimaker? The latter has a 35W heater included. But you can measure the resistance R of the heater and then calculate the power by 24V x 24V / R.

I really have no Idea how old my machine is. Bought it used from a medical equipment clearing house. The machine read 1 hour print time 20 hours on. and I believe it.

Supper clean, nothing missing, all the original packing. Outside of box was dirty as pig pen. LOL.

You're right, Olsson kit didn't have the wire in the box. I guess I got lucky and scored extra regular nozzle with heater wire.( makes it a 25 watt)

Included pic of machine. As you can see it has no extra filament guides or the holes for it.

Thanks for your help.
