This is a great design. Perfectly simple, and it can be taken off or put on the filament without unloading and reloading the extruder. Works with 1.75 and 3.0mm filaments. I never print without one! Thanks!

Your prints look kinda crappy, try using less flow, or try using a lower heat.

I hope I helped you with this.

I made this thing over 4.5 years ago with my first DIY 3D Printer. Now it looks different ;)

one question. when i create the gcode with Slic3r, the pronterface then when i start to print says: T:185 E:0 W:?
what do i have to change ? the calibration cube works with no probloms

Doesn't the sponge leave particles on the filament?

I've been using this with a thin strip of foam rubber that I roll around the filament, then add this holder. Works great and haven't had any problems, but it may be possible that some types of foam rubber might get crumbly.

I use simple dishwashing sponges, they don't leave residues on the fillament
