Unlike similar designs this alignment bracket was designed to print without support or raft.

You will know you need it the first time it happens to you. Let Makersome help before it’s to late. You will be kickin yourself when the filament jumps the spool and wraps around the holder, not allowing it to feed properly, having your extruder head moving around and nothing coming out. With this easy to print project you can have trouble free prints.


  1. Download the STL file for the Filament Alignment Bracket

  2. Pop it into your slicer of choice

  3. We recommend using PLA with extruder setting of 200°C

  4. If you do not have a Glass Bed Upgrade Kit then we recommend not to use a heated bed, but if you do have the Glass Bed Upgrade Kit then we recommend using a bed temp of 70°C

  5. You do not need to use rafting or supports while printing this project

  6. Load your project onto an SD card or connect your computer to your printer (just use your preferred method here)

Congratulations, you're ready to print!

is there a 75mm version (width) of this for the new FFCP?

Flashforge Creator Pro Filament Guide

It does not seem to be compatible with the Flash Forge Creator Pro 2016 (3cm wider).

I can confirm this, I also have the 2016 model.

I made a remix of this


Works great for me

FlashForge Creator Pro (newest version) filament feeder 2016 75mm
by Mdav801

Oh man THANK YOU. I've had my Flashforge Creator Pro for all of five days and that's happened to me three times. It was a real pain. The first two times I caught it before it got out of hand. This last time it was necessary to disassemble one of the heads to clean out filament cause it was on an overnight print. It ended up breaking off the filament down inside.

Works perfectly. Thank you.

Thanks! This was just what I needed, and worked really well. In contrast to some others' experiences, my feed tubes were almost too tight in the holes. I reamed the holes out with a drill bit (just a bit, by hand) to get the tubes to slide in.

I did well with a support and printed very good. As others already said, I would make diameter of tubes 0.5-1mm smaller, this way tubes won't fall and will hold tight. Other than that works great!

Thanks for this supportless (no pun intended) bracket.

I made one for my FF Creator and like it. There is only a minor issue: The tubes are too loose in the bracket pipes such that I needed to glue them to it. It would be nice to put some kind of stopping plate with a 4-5 mm hole to the bottom of each pipe.

Very nice, I did however made a change to this, I wont post it though. But I changed it to accept m6 threads for push fit fittings and PTFE tubes to the extruder wire bracket.

Otherwise definitely helps keep filament from wrapping around the filament holder!

Printed and working fairly well. I printed two of these for my printers and on both the left side guide tube tends to slip down during printing. Never happens on the right side. I think I will stick in a wedge to make it a tighter fit.

Looks great but ..

"Unlike similar designs this alignment bracket was designed to print without support or raft."

Then later on

"You need to use rafting and supports while printing this project"

Does it need supports and raft or not?

Sorry for the error. You do not need supports or rafting when printing this. I updated the instructions as well.

How big are the holes for the guide tubes? This looks good. I like not using supports.

The holes are big enough so that the guide tubes fit in snuggly
