Olssons flagship nozzle has all the features of the original Olsson Ruby but is designed for high temp applications up to 500 C°. The Olsson Ruby High Temperature Nozzle Is made from high conductivity copper and coated with a high performance non-stick chromium nitride surface offering non-stick properties, resulting in smoother and cleaner prints.
The industrial need for functional materials is growing rapidly, and by combining abrasion-resistant properties with heat resistance, you strike two birds with one stone. For users, this means you can print with heat resistant composites, such as carbon-filled Ultem, or PEEK.

HIGH TEMP MATERIALS - Print with heat resistant composites, such as carbon-filled Ultem or PEEK. Experiment with other high performance polymers requiring up to 500 degrees Celcius.
NON-STICK COATING - Get smoother, cleaner prints with the non-stick chromium nitride coating – originally developed for the plastic extrusion industry.
ONE NOZZLE - The Olsson Ruby High Temp will work with a huge range of materials like PLA, ABS, CPE/PET, Nylon, and high performance composites with abrasive additives such as carbon fiber filled PEEK & Ultem
HIGHLY WEAR RESISTANT - The ruby mounted at the tip makes sure that even the toughest materials will be printable. It was originally designed for printing with Boron Carbide (B4C), the third hardest known material in the world.
EXCELLENT HEAT CONDUCTIVITY - The Olsson Ruby High Temp sports an even higher thermal performance than its brass counterpart, with a body made from high conductive copper alloy, performance and throughput is first-class.
VERIFIED PERFORMANCE - People all over the world have been testing different iterations of the ruby nozzle since early 2016. We are very happy to have received only good printing results from this community.
SPEED - By using the 0.6 and 0.8mm versions of the Olsson Ruby High Temp it is possible to reach a higher throughput for abrasive materials, while retaining wear-resistance and reliability.
MANUFACTURING QUALITY - The Olsson Ruby High Temp is manufactured, coated, assembled and tested in a high-quality facility in Sweden. This is why 3DVerkstan guarantees the very best quality and tolerances.
The image to the left is the front face of a ruby nozzle that has printed more than 8kg of carbon fiber filled materials. The lines made by the surface grinding of the ruby during production is still visible, also the thinnest edges are still perfectly sharp. The black specs you see on the inside is just residue from the carbon filled filament. Olsson have since reported customers that printed 50kg+ of highly abrasive filaments without any measurable wear on the nozzle.
THE OLSSON RUBY HIGH TEMPERATURE 1.75MM
- Every printer with a E3D V4/V5/V6 1.75mm hotend or similar geometry, including:
- Prusa Research i3 MK2/ MK2S / MK3 *6
- E3D BigBox
- gCreate gMax 1.5XT+
- Felix Pro 2 * 4
- Robo3D R2
- Raise3D N1/N2 *5
The Olsson Ruby is NOT compatible with the Raise3D Pro2 series due to a change in the heat break geometry.
Manufacturers can occasionally alter the design of their printers so please note compatibility for any 3rd party products may change without notice.
*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.
