First off this printed great. Tolerances were great and everything fit like a glove. However, I dont get this. The path that the filament takes from the spool and into the guide seems logical but once it exits the guide it needs to either go up or down and there's too much friction/resistance if you pull the filament in any direction other than the original direction its going. Am I missing something here? I put some PTFE tubing in and its better but unless the spool holder is bolted down somewhere, pulling the filament thru will lift the entire thing up in the air. Might be better if the arm that the filament goes thru be on an angle.
