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.

You mean the Olsson block that was packed with the Ultimaker2 between November 2015 and January 2016? There was no extra heater there but the machines had a 25W heater at that time.

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.

ED
