Was having problems with the filament drifting on the direct drive extruder of the Printrbot Simple (v2) so I merged the STL version of the laser cut parts and added an extension tube in Tinkercad.

I'm still having issues with the filament not grabbing enough or too much and chewing it up but that's another problem to solve.

This thing was made with Tinkercad. Edit it online https://tinkercad.com/things/4OLHjwm587B

This works brilliant well, from first use, thank-you.

This does not work with the current printrbot simple. But basically all I did was cut off the little flange, leave the tube end, and just file the tube to what I needed!

same here, i think the newer v2 are not compatible

Just got my simple up and running and I'm excited to have found this. Thank you!

Neat, I had the same issues, in the end I super glued a tube into the guide to ensure that the filament went straight. The other issue is heat, so added a fan to blow air into the direct drive.

Check the new Simple Getting started guide and look at the numbers they recommend to set in Repetier. I was having the same filament chewing issue and changing the numbers fixed my issue.

I am having this same issue and was going to make one of these. Thanks for saving me the time. Can't wait to try it out!
