Hello

 

im wondering if you can fit the Olson ruby nozzle to the ultimaker s5. If so do you need to change out the heater block.

looking at the ruby nozzle on line it has a smaller shaft and what looks like a different thread.

On the nozzle it just has one A but on the nozzle on the ultimaker S5 it has two A’s.

If there is a fix for this and I do need to swop out parts where can I get the parts.

 

thank you

As far as I know, all UM3(E) cores work perfectly on the S5 as well. The cores being a self contained unit have all the needed parts to work properly. I am not sure if there is a specific ruby core or not, but if so, it will solve the issue without worrying about breaking the core just trying to change the nozzle.

 

I have been switching between cores on both machines since I got the S5. So, it does work in my experience.

Thank you for your help so if I get my hands on a um3(E) core a ruby nozzle should fit this, and this core should fit into the S5 with no issues ?

yup 🙂 But it seems you still want to change the nozzle instead of getting a whole new core.

 

@gr5sells hardened cores like this in the US. He knows tons of stuff about this.

Sorry I think I am confusing matters.

 

i am trying to fit a ruby nozzle to the S5 but the nozzle is shorter and a different thread.

see picture nozzle on the left is the one I have taken out of the core and one on the right is the ruby nozzle I want to put in.

hence my confusion have I got the wrong ruby nozzle or do I need to adapt my current heater block and core for the new nuzzle to fit.

 

im very confused

That is just one reason I am suggesting that you go with a new core that has all of that done. That core is not easy to mess with.

So that ruby core you bought - it's meant for the Ultimaker 2.  I don't know if you got the Olsson ruby or the 3dsolex everlast but I can tell in the picture that it has standard M6 thread and it's meant for the UM2 printer only.

 

For the UM3 or S5 you have 2 choices.  You can by a CC 0.6 core from the same manufacturer that sold you your printer.  Or you can buy a 3dsolex "hardcore" with a ruby nozzle.  3dsolex.com.

 

disclaimer: In the USA I sell 3dsolex parts (thegr5store.com)
