It would be nice to have a version that accepted an embedded nut (M10 fine thread?) so that the tube could be easily removed for troubleshooting.

These sorts of couplings are made to be quick release - just press down on the top while pulling the tube out. No need to unscrew anything.

Got my MMU2 in the mail on monday and have been working basically 24/7 to try to get it to work, with no avail. I am definitely going to make this, looks like it should work :)

Would you be willing to make a similar cover for the selector that uses the same hardware? Someone on here makes a selector that accepts a passthrough tube, but the separate cover he made uses different hardware.

Linked fitting just arrived, 1 day free shipping - thanks amazon prime. Printing your cover as I type this. Does layer height matter for the threads? Printing 0.10 just in case

Printing with 0.10 layer height is 47 mins
Printing with 0.20 layer height is 25 mins

Hey there, nuroo

Yes, 0.1mm would be the way to go just to capture the fine threading. Good luck with the cover. Hopefully it will help things a little for you.
