3d Solex Matchless V3 Block with UMO+

Recommended Posts

Posted · 3d Solex Matchless V3 Block with UMO+

Hi, I have bought a 3D Solex Matchless set as an intended upgrade to my UMO+. I wanted the versatility of different nozzle sizes and this appeared to be a good option - although I understood that I would have to print a new fan shroud to account for the reduced nozzle height and so have done this.


However, the problem I now have is getting it all connected up. I have the Peek Isolator https://imaginables.com.au/products/peek-isolator-umo which ordinarily connects to the hot end isolator tube https://fbrc8.com/products/hot-end-isolator-tube and then the UMO heater block https://fbrc8.com/products/heater-block-umo to which the umo nozzle connects. 


Logically I assumed I replace the entire heater block, but I am struggling to insert the solex block connected like this (although it looks like it fits it just shreds the thread of the Peek Isolator https://www.3djake.uk/3d-solex/matchless-v3-block?gclid=Cj0KCQjwhPfkBRD0ARIsAAcYycGEIn9MYmM45ioLyn3euNQKFdoS4hzDWXPSv164fF0LeWrHnAL306oaAsllEALw_wcB


I am fairly new to 3D printing (as you may tell) and would appreciate any advice. Should what I am trying work, or am I missing something?


Thanks in advance,

Send it back!


You should not gotten the block v3.  That's for UM2 only.  Not Um3.  Not UMO.


The nozzles however you can use.  You should not have taken your head apart at all.  You just remove the existing nozzle and screw in the new nozzles directly into the aluminum block.


You can use any type of brass e3dv6 style nozzles meant for UMO or UM2.

Thanks gr5. 


This is good to know. I had reached the conclusion that using the nozzles in the old block was probably the only option open to me, but did not want to do this before checking they were compatible.
