Installing the Olsson Block for the Ultimaker 2

The Olsson block allows for quick and easy nozzle changes, so different nozzle sizes can be selected to suit each project. A larger nozzle is suitable for faster printing, while a smaller nozzle can be used to create more detailed prints. The provided Olsson block comes with 4 nozzles in various sizes (0.25mm, 0.40mm, 0.60mm and 0.80mm), a screwdriver and a socket. In addition to reading our detailed support text guide there is an installation guide video available:

Note: Use of a torque wrench with the socket is not required, but highly recommended to install nozzles without over-tightening. If a torque wrench is available for use with the socket during installation, please set it to a force between 1 and 1.5Nm. Take care not to set the force higher than 2Nm, as the nozzle could possibly break off inside the block.

If a torque wrench is not available, download a specially designed torque wrench model that can be 3D printed prior to installing the Olsson block. Take care to follow the included printing instructions, especially concerning the 100% infill, or the wrench may fail during use. Be careful not to over-use the 3D printed wrench, as it is not intended as a permanent replacement for a torque wrench.
