Ultimaker Quick Connect Shim
by LawrenceJohnston, published
This shim fits on the quick connect and essentially eliminates this play.

This thing was created using the Object Oriented Mechanics Library (OOML). See iearobotics.com/oomlwiki/doku.php?id=start for details.

This solved so many stringing problems, great work! I had to really pry the tube up to get this in there, and I put some tape around it just to be sure it wouldn't go flying out. Works great!
My shim fell off almost immediately and I am now giving the one with a zip tie a chance instead. http://www.thingiverse.com/thi...

Pull the bowden tube up from the extruder until a space is formed between the pieces of the quick connect.
Insert the clip around the inner piece of the quick connect (see picture). This prevents it from pulling back down into the outer piece during retraction.
If you later want to remove the bowden from the quick connect you must first remove the shim.
