Olsson Ruby, will it fit?

Postby fponticelli » Thu Dec 29, 2016 6:19 pm

Does this nozzle fit the Raise3D extruder? http://olssonruby.com/

It would be really interesting to have such option.

The question would be if these specifications are the same as our hotend.

"We have designed The Olsson Ruby to be compatible with the popular form factor of a nozzle with a 7.5mm long M6x1 external threading, like the range of Olsson Nozzles used on the Olsson Block for the Ultimaker 2, and on the E3D hotends. This list is compiled both of the printers we have tested and some we believe will be compatible from looking at specifications."

yeh I just saw them this morning. I want to get one and put on a chain to wear as tech bling!

on a serious note, maybe buy one of there brass nozzles first to see if that fits.

Would very much like to get one to try some more abrasive materials without plowing through nozzles.

I've just received it this morning !
i can test now some abrasive spool i have : XT-cf20, protopasta carbonfiber pla, Virtual Foundry PLA filamet copper (90% metal), steelfill

Please tell us about the installation process.
Curious.

Yo, regarding installation, it's really easy if you follow the instructions given on their website.
You have to print the tool to tighten well the nozzle. You have to do that with heating on, or be sure the thread and everything is really clean.

I have printed rims of RCF1 project and other parts with XT-CF20 and i had good result but not perfect due to the XTCF20 that sticks to the noozle.... so i'm running lot of tests on this. It makes me crazy because you find people that increases the speed, others that lower it.... for me, reducing layer height (0.2 --> 0.15) and speed (about 25m/s) leads to have less plastic stuck to the noozle and better results. Some people advice to disable retraction but i'm still thinking i can have a nearly perfect result without post-processing..;.

The noozle doesn't move an inch.

I will post pictures when i go back home in 3 days

I correct what i said : perform replacement with heating on only and tighten well (--> don't stop tightening when you hear the first "click" of the tool but stop it after many "clicks". I notice a little leakage due to that but now, it's ok.)

Benchies (2shells, 10% infill, 4 bottom and 4 top layers, 0.2mm layer height except for XT-CF20 0.15mm and 6 top layers because of too much plastic that sticks to the nozzle with 0.2mm (i have to do other tests and lower the speed and maybe try 0.1mm layer)
No cleaning at all, just printed

ProtoPasta PL/CF15

Nanovia ABS/CF and Aramid (little over extrusion to correct)

Thingiverse things

just a little sand papering on the rim to see how it behaves, other are like they were in the printer...

XT-cf20 (0.2mm for the rims and 0.15mm for the hinges)

Hinges.jpg


ProtoPasta (0.15) - had to reduce extrusion a little bit and activate 'no travel through hole' in the slicer to improve the quality

Wheel2.jpg


Virtual Forge Filamet PLA Copper (90%) and Colorfabb Steelfill (0.2mm and 0.15mm)
Only short print because these filaments break very very very easiliy (protopasta says that their filament is brittle but it's very strong compared with these ones)

a little bit of red ABS on the copper 0.15mm one (forgot to clea the nozzle) and a little lack on the steelfill 0.2mm due to filament broken
