i am more than happy to tweak it for you. if you are having trouble, others certainly are as well. Do you have a way to measure the length and outer diameter of your PTFE tube?

Didn't work right for me, there was still a gap between the interfaces and the filament got stuck.

did you move the small piece of PTFE from your existing filament sensor cover to this one? That is required and I should have been clear about that in my description. There would be problems without the short PTFE segment in place.

If you did move it over, how big was the gap between the top of the short PTFE segment and the bottom of the Palette output tube? Mine were basically touching and left no room for filament to miss and jam.

I didn't at first, and when I did, things got better. However, the hole is still too wide and the whole thing too tall, it's not snug at all. The small PTFE bit comes out every time I unload filament, and when loading it takes several tries to hit the gears. It's workable now, but some tweaking would definitely help! Thanks for your contribution though!
