Custom heater block to fit E3D nozzle on Ultimaker 2 ("The Olsson Block")

You can easily keep plastic from sticking on the outside of nozzles, by wiping the nozzle with a bit of liquid silicone lube. I spray a small amount on a paper towel and wipe it around the tip before starting a print. Start with a new nozzle, and it will stay clean approximately forever.

This avoids plastic sticking to the nozzle, cooking until brown, and coming off on the print, a particular issue with ABS.
