Bowden clamp for Ultimaker prevents popping out PTFE tube.
It has holder for thermocouple circuit.
With short tube thread for those who cuted few time PTFE tube and now head want go in 0,0 position because of short tube.


I made this with holder for electr. for those who want to have thermocouple board and Bowden clamp together.

Good thing with this design is for those who few times cuted PTFE tube and now head is not going to 0,0 position because of shorten tube.

I assume that you dont need specialy manual how to mount , because your tube poped many times, and you did this many times :D :lol:

First at all pull the tube through the nut !
Next you must mount thermocouple board - nuts goes in position at the bottom of the base
Then you can mount tube in white clamp and put blue clip
After that you can assemble the base.

Since circuit board is large dimensions, all is made that suit in milimeter.
Mounting is with existing bolts.

I printed all this in 0,1mm and it holds the tube like hell.
Thread of nut is also new, so I assume that you cant use old, but before printing you can check if it suits.

Do you have the source file for this? When I slice this there is a void in the design where the cone connects to the platform. I'd like to try to improve that junction to get a stronger part.


I hacked the gcode to replace the void layers with solid ones from a few layers up the tube, but would still like to get a clean version in case I want to slice again. :-)

here it is .....
