Summary

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.

Thank you so much. It works great.

I definitely recommend printing this one in ABS rather than PLA. The first one I printed unfortunately ended up bending badly when I had the printer in an enclosure (aka garbage bag) for an ABS print, because the PLA started softening up. The ABS one is holding out like a champ though.

Thanks for the file worked great, new to this 3D printing had no issues PLA @210c nozzle and 60c bed

Awesome thanks! My first print other than decapicat rite of passage. Came out perfect. Printed PLA Plus 212 nozzle / 60 bed.

Not sure whether its my printers fault, but for me the part doesnt work. The aluminium mount the part is supposed to snap too is too thick or the part is too narrow. I have broken 2 of the parts trying to attach them.

Just made this, and it tourned out very good.
Snaps right on and was one of my first prints on the CR10.

Snapped on cleanly, although overtime the filament will squeak up against it as it extrudes through. Probably just need to move the spool.

Great idea but interesting on my Ender 2 there is a 2mm clearance between the Z axis lead screw and the filament, so maybe there is a variation in the extruder designs.

I needed something to test my new printer and wanted to make something useful. Perfect first print and a very useful mod.

Thanks.

Thanks a lot, it fitted nicely to my Creality Ender-2 (Hictop)!

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 :)

You can find the remix here https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2347147
This one fits a tube of 4mmOD PTFE

CR-10 filament Guide

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
