Olsson Ruby – 2.85mm – High Output

The only nozzle series you need!

Want to print big things on a large printer using abrasive materials? Then you need the High Output Olsson Ruby 2.85mm range. The best nozzle on  the market, to date, by far just got compatible with the E3D Volcano Hotends. This nozzle is not afraid of glass filled, carbon filled or even metal filled filaments but completely compatible with non-filled materials too. You will only ever need to change nozzle if you want a larger extrusion width!

As you know our goal at Emvio Engineering is not to shift boxes. We want to stock unique and value adding items. This is the reason why we are now working with Olsson Ruby to bring the most hardwearing nozzle to the UK!

The Olsson Ruby is an invention by Anders Olsson, the man that gave the Ultimaker community the Olsson Block. The back story of the Olsson Ruby is one that has inspired us and as one member of our team is well versed in hard metals and materials, it really hit home how elegant the nozzle is.

The Olsson Ruby consists of a precision machined threaded brass body and a perfectly ground ruby tip. Rubies, being aluminium oxide, is extremely hard wearing but unlike some of the other ceramic equivalents has a better thermal conductivity. Best of all, the processes involved in machining it have been established for centuries. Ruby is the watchmakers hard material of choice for jewel bearings after all.

Take a look at the results of tests conducted with carbon filled filament:

Sigma nozzle extruded 0.3kg
Sigma nozzle extruded 0.3kg of filament before being so worn
A stainless nozzle lasted on 1kg
Common misconception - Stainless does not mean hard. This one lasted only 1kg of CF filament
Hardened steel lasted on 4kg
The classic hardened steel nozzles fared ok extruding 4kg of carbon filled

Here is a testimonial from one of our friends and customer Darren K, as posted on Olssonruby.com.  (Darren also purchased a full set of upgrades for his BCN3D Sigma.)

First, I tried a few hardened nozzles and I had thermal issues. I also did try steel but it was like putting my finger in the air to find new standard print parameters each time.

Now, I use the Olsson Ruby and I’m a big fan.The main benefit for it is that i don’t have to worry about a moving target. Once I have things dialed in for the nozzle diameter, that’s where it’ll stay. Normal brass is a variable as it gets worn down and over time that is troublesome when creating parts that have very specific fit qualities.”Darren Keirle, UK, Feb 28th, 2017

Mosquito MAGNUM Hotend 1.75mm – Slice Engineering

The Mosquito hotend is what started the Slice Engineering journey.  Designed to have a small form factor, low mass, short retraction, and optimized heat transfer, the Mosquito uses the highest grade materials available, all engineered and built for performance in the USA.

Mosquito is built to accommodate standard 6 mm heater cartridges, 3 mm thermistors, and RepRap style nozzles (as made by E3D, Microswiss, Olssen Ruby, etc.). We also highly recommend the use of Capricorn XS tubing during installation to achieve the best printing results. If you can source some super fast 50W heaters then these puppies will FLY!

There is a reasonable selection of adapters to allow you to mount the Mosquitoes on the Bondtech kits as direct drive or bowden.

Bondtech have created a specific BMG extruder for use with the Mosquito Hotends which couples them using two cap head screws. This increases the torsional stiffness of the hotend making swapping out nozzles a one handed operation.

Dimensional drawings here. Suffice to say. You would get the performance of an E3D Volcano, in a package not much longer than the E3D heatsink. That is good engineerin 😉

Craftbot 3, Independent dual extrusion 3D Printer

The Supervisor

This highly hyped name stems from the fact that the CB3 has some inbuilt monitoring systems. The hype though is real and we can definitely see this machine matching and beating the other IDEX systems.

During the second week of April 2018, we were invited to Budapest, Hungary, to train on the repair and use of the CB3. It was during this time that we saw how well the machine was designed and built

Based on the typical Craftbot steel frame, the team have taken on board good practice in kinematic element design to ensure that the 3 axes are perpendicular.

The hotends are totally redesigned, integrating a titanium heatbreak, a very sturdy antirotation feature and convenient connectors everywhere to make maintenance a joy.

As you may already know, titanium has very poor thermal conductivity making it the ideal material for a heatbreak of a hotend capable of 300 °C.

As with all new Craftbots, the units ship with the latest stepper motor drivers by Trinamics, making printing as silent as possible.

The Z axis is now driven by a rolled ballscrew with light preload

The team have also improved the Wifi capability of the machine allowing for faster transfer of GCode. It can also send you an email if it detects printing issues.

Failure detection from clogging or grinding is done with the assistance of two encoder wheels that measure how much filament has passed through. this is compared to the the length of filament called for by the GCodes and if there is a discrepancy, recovery measures are triggered.

Alignment of the hotends is done using the typical vernier type scale in the X and Y direction while in the Z direction the height is adjusted mechanically. The latter allowing ditto and mirror printing with minimum effort.

One of the best aspects of working with CraftUnique, apart from the team being really nice people, is that they listen to their customers. That is why, in the new CB3 the build plate has been beefed up, a status LED has been placed behind the logo and improved WIFI capability.

Another cool point is that the hotends take M6x1 threaded nozzles making the CB3 commpatible with the Olsson Ruby and other similar speciality nozzles.

Craftbot Plus – THE MULTI AWARD WINNER

Did we mention we love our craftbot?

Well we do and here is why:

  • Top quality bars and linear bearings are used in a well made precision bent steel box chassis. Mouthful to be sure.
  • It is quiet. When the the print is finished, the fans switch off. When the machine is printing, the dampers on the stepper motors keep the noise down
  • The kinematic system is AWESOME! CoreXY here people! Two stepper motors working in unison on one endless timing belt give not only rigidity but also sooo much moving force. This makes the Crafbot able to print at higher speeds than equivalently price machines and even some of the more expensive ones.
  • The touch screen LCD though is the true gem. You can change the filament out by just hitting the pause button and reversing the old one out

The nozzles it uses are based on the M6 Thread which makes them compatible with other cool options too like the Olsson Ruby

LET YOUR CREATIVITY TAKE SHAPE!

CraftBot 3D printer was designed and built from scratch in order to develop the ultimate tool for beginners and experienced users as well. It’s an easy to use, plug-and-play device – you can get from unpacking to printing your first 3D object ever in minutes. However, CraftBot Plus is far from being a “basic 3D printer” as it easily outperforms more expensive machines in many aspects!

Printing accuracy: Thanks to its 100 micron/layer resolution, CraftBot provides a very high printing quality.
Printing size: Small from the outside, but huge inside – CraftBot has an impressive built volume of 250x200x200mm (approx. 10” x 8” x 8”)
Color LCD touchscreen: CraftBot has an intuitive, well-organized navigation menu giving constant information on the printing process.
Constant control: Users can alter printing parameters any time by the touchscreen – even during the printing process!
Heatable & removable build platform: Heating prevents warping and sticking. Removable build platform is easier to clean.
USB connection: Connect and control printing directly by connecting your CraftBot 3D printer to your PC via USB cable.
Direct pendrive information load: Easiest way to upload your sliced 3D model to CraftBot’s memory. In the box you will find a pendrive with samples so you can immediately test your device.
CraftWare: Our universal, advanced 3D printer software with a user-friendly graphical interface. Its advanced slicing algorithm ensures faster conversions and better results.
Customer service: At CraftBot we love 3D printing. Our support staff has in-depth knowledge of the technology and always ready to help you.

CarbLoaded PET - 2.85mm
CarbLoaded PET - 2.85mm

Techna CarbLoaded PET – 500g

Take our PET-G, mix in 20% by weight carbon fibre and you you get a CarbLoaded PET. This pooch is no handbag pooch at all! Abrasive to standard nozzles but toughness and stiffness to beat a fair few well known names in the business. Prints nicely at typical PET-G temperatures and due to the low thermal expansion coefficient, can be printed at low bed temperatures too!

If you own a BCN3D Sigma, you may want to consider upgrading the hotend kit to make changing nozzles easier. Take a look at our hotend conversion kit.

Here is a review we got from the team over at  http://www.inov3d.net/

The got a spool to print with for  review and lent us their Open RC F1 model to display at the 2018 TCT exhibition.

Hotend upgrade kit
Emvio Full upgrade package for the Sigma

E3D Hotend Upgrade – BCN3D Sigma

Warning

Fitting this kit requires reasonable technical ability in mechanical, electrical and also firmware of 3D printers. Although steps have been taken to ensure the process is a smooth one, the risk of damage to your printer exists. Installation also will void your warranty with BCN3D or your local reseller and we are unable to cover you for damage caused during the installation.

We strongly recommend that you have a good working printer before attempting to upgrade. If you printer is not performing for any reason, please consult BCN3D or your reseller before considering upgrading. We test all the turnkey printers extensively before upgrading them!

Orders for the SLS parts have been placed so hang tight for the actual photos.

We uhmmed and arred about launching the E3D Hotend Upgrade for BCN3D Sigma, but seeing the demand from a number of professional organisations as well as individuals, it was time to let the greater public be able to easily ask us for them.

To date, we have been offering turnkey solutions for the upgrade where customers have requested that they receive the machines ready to go. This does come with a price to cover the labour costs as well as warranty of the service.

With the E3D V6 hotends, the Bondtech QR extruders and our own design of mounting hardware, you can turn your otherwise perfect Sigma into a a machine with the best in class hardware.

With the exchange of the hotend to E3D, there is the option to convert your machine to use 1.75mm filament as well. Such a kit was first created for a customer in Japan doing what we feel is a huge service to that country! Customers that have 1.75mm printers already have also been asking for this. The question of course of 1.75mm as a Bowden has been asked and we are happy to say that due to the reliability of both the hotends and the Bondtech Extruders, the system works impressively well.

The video below shows a conversion we completed for a customer in Switzerland being tested using a 0.25mm nozzle. The print is the hollow Draudi model to demonstrate the retraction speed capability of the upgraded machine.

So in the kit you will receive:

  • 2x E3D V6 hotends assembled with 0.4mm nozzles
  • 2x Nylon SLS hotend holders
  • 2x M3x0.5-20 socket cap screws

You can reuse the existing screws heater cartridge thermistor, and fans.

As of firmware version 1.2.7 it is a rather painful process to produce the modified Marlin HEX files. We thus suggest that you reuse the original thermistor and heater cartridge that came with your Sigma.

For the machine to function correctly, you will need complete the temperature PID Tuning program.

Full instructions will be made available as soon as we are able to take photos.
