For the next month or so every Ultimaker 2 or Ultimaker 2 Extended we sell will come with a free Olsson Block, worth £100, which you can use to modify your 3D printer. The kit includes 4 interchangeable nozzles ranging from 0.25mm to 0.8mm.
With the ever increasing popularity of special filaments such as XT CF20, Copperfill, Bronzefill and Brassfill, the stock brass nozzle on the Ultimaker 2 can wear out pretty quickly as it was never intended for filaments like this. That’s exactly why Anders Olsson came up with the Olsson Block. It is a threaded replacement heater block that allows you to replace the nozzle within seconds. This opens up the possibility of using different sized nozzles, smaller ones for more detailed prints and larger ones for faster, larger prints. Or even reserving certain nozzles for specific materials. Looking forward to seeing what you create!
