I had been using Pit3k's feeder end bowden clamp for a while now, but there seemed to be alot of play up and down as the filament was extruded and retracted, so i merged his model with Helmforest bowden bracket to create this, which has absolutely no movement what so ever, so hopefully some slightly more accurate retraction


I printed at 0.2mm layers 180 degrees 80mms 33% infill

Updated with slightly enlarged filament hole with guiding chamfers either end.

Worked great, just had to expand the wooden part for about half a millimeter to stick in the clamp properly. Maybe I should have printed it with 99.7% scale or something like that. Now it works great and this is also my first print of a useful part :)

Brilliant! glad it worked ok. On the sizing issue, you may be over extruding a little? or the laser cut parts could vary from machine to machine, i had to drill the filament hole out a bit on my print, as it was a bit tight.

Yeah, It could be possible that I am a little over extruding. Will look at this tomorrow.

I had that problem with the filament hole too, maybe you could make it about 0.2 millimeters bigger?

Thanks again and happy making :)
