Ultimaker PEEK replacement V2 by scottmayson Aug 22, 2012

Description

# NOTE thread the top M6 down enough to remove the 1/8 hole in the center of the part. Have had some plugging with ABS not PLA.

Revised drawings and parts soon.

This is the second version of my now reliable replacement PTFE part for the Ultimaker now in PEEK!

I'm having trouble finding a tap long enough to tap 27mm completely through. Any ideas? I'm in USA.

Nice work Scott! is it possible to redesign this in order to make it work for UM brass and nozzle?

It's ceramic cloth wrapped in kapton. I'm printing PLA between 216-230 depending on speed 80-130mm/s :-)

Is that Kapton tape around the aluminium block Scott? What temps are you printing PLA at?

Nice work...Can't wait to see your newest creation.

Is the M7 version to support a larger OD Bowden?

The M7 is for people who dont want to cut an M6 on their Bowden tube. Even though they can use an M7 and then M6 die as the thread pitch is the same.
