Very nice part... congratulations !
I just don't understand why your SolidWorks file can't be opened in my SolidWorks 2013 x64 Edition SP3.0 ?
Last thing: could you explain (or take a photo) what is at the other end of your 4mm OD tubing? How does it join the spool (with another 90deg)?
Thanks a lot.

I modeled this part in SW 2016. SW files are not backwards compatible with older versions of SW, so that explains why you're unable to open it. It should have given you a 'future version' error when it tried to open it.

On the other end of the tube, I have a simple bracket attached to the inside of my printer cabinet. The bracket both holds the tube in place and provides a funnel-shaped entry to feed filament into it. I'll upload this file later tonight so that you can use it, if you wish.

I know the backwards compatibility limitations, but that's the first time I haven't the message "future version". The one I have is "An error has occured when opening your file. Contact the support center to try to find a solution.". I'll try with a newer version of SolidWorks.
Yes of course it will be very nice of you if you could upload your bracket with a photo of the final result, please.

R1C, here is the tube bracket on the other end that you were asking about.

Thanks a lot man, nice enclosure!

Need to be cut if a damper is used.

That is true. I left some clearance between this bracket and the servo so that wires can be routed thru, but I did not account for extra space if one is using a dampener.

Yes, No problems, I just cut it for the moment and it works perfectly, I will try to remix if I have time :-)

Will this required longer wheel screws to mount?

No, all the existing hardware can be used.
