This is a beefier version of the bowden clamp for rostock. I decided to use 3mm filament so the original version was a little bit too small. Then I didn't have a proper nut to hold the tube in place like the original, so I decided to add grooves to the jaw so I could use zipties.

I hold my hotend in place with long screws on each side of it, so I also changed the body to have a square center part instead of a rounded one.

I also added a parameter to this clamp in the scad file, so it can be generated without the hotend hole at the bottom, in order to use the same clamp on the extruder side of the bowden tube.


Print, add bowden tube, add zipties.

Hi, I had a printer from 3D-Stuffmakers with a 3 mm bowden extruder on a Prusa I2 printer. After finding a good setup on Kiss Slicer, had good results with PLA. Ozing was not a n issue.
Will build my Rostock with a similar setup, because have parts for 3 mm Hot End.

How do you find that this works with a bowden setup with 3mm filament? I tried to do this a while ago on my prusa mendel but had lots of problems with the tube disconnecting all the time due to the pressure required to push the filament. 

Thinking about trying this though on my Rostock as i don't have a 1.7mm hotend that i can use (but have a spare 3mm J-Head)..

Also, what hotend are you using and how did you mount it on the Rostock?
