Filament guide for the Up! Mini 3d printer with a compartment for an "filter" to clean the filament from dust.


I had one role of filament which was very "dusty" and gave small imperfections in the prints. Inspired by ideas in various forums I gave it a shot to design a new filament guide....

Improvements/differences from the orginal one is:

  1. The filament tube can be attached with pressure fit and won't come loose by itself (even when inserting new filament)
  2. The pocket for inserting some kind of "filter" that can remove small dust particles.
  3. The design which looks a little bit more integrated than the old one
  4. The color that matches the chassie of the Up! Mini :-)

I printed mine with the "overhang part" down and it worked fine.
