Olsson Ruby Nozzle
With The Olsson Ruby’s capability to print both abrasive and standard materials without sacrificing quality, speed or ease-of-use, it is possible for users to fully embrace the possibilities given by abrasive materials such as carbon- and metal-filled plastics. Some of the benefits of the new nozzle are described below.
The Olsson Ruby will work with a huge range of materials.
PLA, ABS, CPE/PET, Nylon, and composites with abrasive additives such as Carbon fibre, Steel, Wood, Boron Carbide, Tungsten and Phosphorescent pigment, are some of the materials successfully tested so far.
HIGHLY WEAR RESISTANT
The ruby mounted at the tip assures that even the toughest materials will be printable. It was originally designed for printing with a composite of Boron Carbide (B4C), the third hardest known material in the world.
EXCELLENT HEAT CONDUCTIVITY
Since most of The Olsson Ruby is made from brass, with its excellent heat conductivity, performance and throughput is first-class.
People all over the world have been testing different iterations of The Olsson Ruby nozzle since early 2016. We are very happy to hear about the good results from this community.
The Olsson Ruby is manufactured, assembled and tested in a high-quality facility in Sweden. This is why 3DVerkstan guarantees the very best quality and tolerances.

*1 = You will need to adjust the fan shroud since the nozzle is shorter than the original nozzle.
*2 = You will need to mount it with the nozzle not placed against the front face of the heater block but against the heat break/isolator tube to create a seal.
*3 = Will require disabling of the automatic bed leveling since the ruby tip is not conductive.
*4 = Several testers reports success. Ruby is longer than stock nozzle so Z height needs to be adjusted.
*5 = Adjustment of z-stop required, also see notes on the revision of your Raise3D printer in the Instructions for use
*6 = Lower the heatsink and heatbreak half a turn while the block is hot to ensure a proper seal.
