Guide wheel to supply the filament straight into the extruder minimizing friction.

Updated V2 version where the wheel is positioned at a small angle to point towards the center of the filament roll. (preferred version!)

Added a V3 base version for the new UM2+ extruder


Just add a 608ZZ bearing and mount in the existing hole using HEX M3 x 10 bolt. Use foto as reference.

The feeder has a 3D printed thing around it as well, where can I find that?
Also what is the size of the 608ZZ bearing (7mm, 8mm)?

I printed this on my Ultimaker 2+ using ColorFabb nGen filament and 0.1 mm resolution. It works nicely! I scaled it up to 101% in Cura to make sure the bearing fit inside.
