Works with 2.0 and earlier. Will not fit 2.1+ without modification.
Prevents your filament guide tube from bending at extreme angles and adding friction. I substituted a slightly longer bolt in the existing bearing mount hole. Filament tubing OD measures 6mm. I also included the:
- gcode file created in cura that I used to print it with PLA.
- The Freecad design file, full parametric.
Please note that this will limit your max Z height a bit. Using ANY guide tube setup will do this.
I added a file for a tube holder that can be used to hole the "free" end of the guide tube. Apologies for the terrible photo. You will need a longer M3 bolt to use this part, 10mm or so.
By request, I added another version of the hot end side of this part that is sized for 4mm OD tubing (filguide4mmV1.stl). I have not tested this, because I don't have that tubing...Please let me know if there is an issue with this sizing.
Updated the 4mm tube holder with a slightly smaller hole. File name is now filguide4mmV2.stl
Updated 4mm tube holder with repaired stl file.
I printed at 195C with PLA and 95% infill. Print takes 15 minutes.
