I have it for several weeks now and i'm very happy with it. I print a lot with the .8mm nozzle it's very fast indeed
For installation you can watch this video (also on the website: 3dsolex.com)
Some user report breaking the PT100 temp sensor, not always but it can happen (sometimes it's really stuck).
Once installed you have to relevel the bed (because it's slightly lower than the stock one. Just use the bed level wizard as usual nothing special here.
In Cura, you just have to change the nozzle size according to the one you have for printing. Pay attention to this parameter, slicing for a .4mm nozzle and printing with .8mm nozzle will not work.
Leveling procedure doesn't change with olsson. You just have to re-level when you change nozzles because they are different heights and level when you install the olsson block.
For rough leveling I use the built-in procedure and use paper if on blue-tape and if on glass I just do it visually - make the nozzle touch the glass and then back off the tiniest possible amount such that it isn't touching visually. Maybe 1/8 turn (45 degrees) back on the screws after it touches. This works very well for a first pass and is good enough for 90% of prints. Then once it starts printing I look at the brim or skirt and adjust all 3 equally - if plastic "bead" is too round (not flatened like a pancake) then I move glass closer 1/8 or 1/4 turn at a time. If it is so thin it's transparent I move the glass farther from the nozzle (tighten screws). 1/4 turn at a time.
Usually all 3 screws unless only one spot is bad.
Do this at the start of each print and you will have it dialled in perfect and your machine will keep its level for months or until you change nozzles.Edited by Guest
