This is a filament guide for the Creality CR-10 Printer.

Basically it will prevent your filament to touch the (greasy) Z-Axis lead screw.

There are 2 versions, one has clip where you can attach the wires from the hotend, the other doesn't.

To install the guide, you just have to clip it in place. If it does not fit, it means that you are the unlucky owner of a printer where the hole for the Z-Axis lead screw was not drilled at the right place (it seems to happen sometimes).

To use the guide, insert the filament in the axis of the extruder hole, as you would normally do, and once it is in place, put it in the hook of the guide.

Great! Simple but effective :)

Could you please rework the clip part so I can fit a bit of PFTE 4mmOD tubing on it ;) that will ensure filament does not "scrap" against the PLA guider :)

Cool thanks!!

Anybody else here would be interested to have a version where you can fit at piece of PTFE tubing?

Yeah, absolutely why not!
I didn't useed/printed your filament guide yet (have my CR-10 only since 2d), I simply use 2 cm of PTFE tube wich is taped to the extruder as a guide since I hadn't the time to print a guide yet and to leave it the default way is silly.

BTW adding a sponge or a mounting position for one could be handy, too. Simple and easy way to clean the filament from dust before it enter the printer.

I use this on my other printers and it should work for this one as well
