It is important to have an abrasion resistant nozzle when printing composite and abrasive materials like Carbon and glass fiber-filled filament. The MK8 version is suitable for printers that uses ”MK8-style” nozzles, including printers from MakerBot and Creality and features excellent performance, wear-resistance and reliability.
The MK8 version features a shorter M6x1 threaded section at 5.5mm and a longer body for a overall length of 13mm.
Please click the 'Compatibility' tab to see if your 3D printer is suitable.

ONE NOZZLE - The Olsson Ruby will work with a huge range of materials. PLA, ABS, CPE/PET, Nylon, and composites with abrasive additives such as Carbon fiber, Steel, Wood, Boron Carbide, Tungsten and Phosphorescent pigment, are some of the materials successfully tested so far. It works equally well for printing common FDM / FFF 3D printing materials up to 300°C.
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 - Since most of the Olsson Ruby is made from brass, with its excellent heat conductivity, 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. Olsson are very happy to have received only good printing results from this community.
MANUFACTURING QUALITY - 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.
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.

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.
