The difference of the AA and BB is the internal nozzle geometry, from what i have heard the AA one reduces oozing and is better for most materials, but used with PVA it would not be reliable because of tendency of PVA to carbonize and clog, while the BB are a "smoother" path wich does ooze a bit more but reduces the risk of clogs by a significant amount.

Thanks!!
So this would be great to have a sectional view for comparison - especially to check if there are some nozzels already available to be used o a UM2 or UMO with a second head...
I guess over the time, details will be revealed and somebody will try to make aftermarket parts too :-)

I got semi excited over the new features, but that was until I saw the asking price. I'll stick to my UM2 and soon the Prusa i3 :)

From what i have seen, and if i remember right, the BB cartridge is a pretty similar profile to the Olsson Nozzles, and the AA cartridge is pretty similar to the original UM2 integrated nozzle.
