Trouble with the feed tube popping out and jacking up your print jobs? This may help.


Assemble A and B as shown in the photo. Print in makerware on defaults medium. Remove the feed tube and sand the small hole till the tube slides snugly through. Raise the ring to where the apex of your tube is when the extruder is at it's home axis. Insert the wiring bundle into the buddys lower ring access slot. Print stuff.

Tried making it like in the pictures. It broke very easy as the 2 parts are not connected by very much plastic. Can you make one that is all in 1 instead of 2 parts? it would make for a much more sound design.

Can you make one to support dual extrusion? I am looking for something to go further down on the cable closer to the extruder and evenly spaces out 2 feed tubs.

Just made this today. simple but effective. I like it a lot, I added it to my Replicator 2 Essentials collection.

In combination with the feed tube relief it's bullet-proof!

Sweet! I made a remix w/ and extra feed tube hole thinking I could use it w/ a second spool for quick color changes. I let you know how it goes.
