Description

Hotend / ToolHead PTFE Guide v2

Don't forget to Follow! 

Thank you so much for your Downloads, Like and BOOSTS!

 

The PTFE guide is positioned so your PTFE tube no longer rubs the top glass. The perfectly designed connector, rotates smoothly and follows the motion of your Bambu Hotend. The natural curve, without restriction to the PTFE tube helps reduce AMS Filament retraction errors.

  • Fast & Easy print in all materials
  • No supports required
  • Perfect smooth fit on PTFE connector
  • Rotates freely
  • Helps resolve AMS Filament Retraction problems
  • Prevents PTFE tube from touching glass top
  • Provides a natural curve to the PTFE tube

Please don't forget to ❤ Like and ★ Rate!

 

INSTALLATION:

  • Feed PTFE tube through guide, pushing the curve in PTFE helps slide through the bottom.
  • Attach PTFE to Hotend connector
  • Lower Guide onto connector and use mild force at an angle to snap on guide connector

REMOVAL:

  • I rotate guide so the PTFE is pointing forward, while pulling up/bending it forward.
  • Be prepared… this PTFE guide might break or bend at the bottom during removal, be ready to print another.

 

NOTE: I recommend using PETG or ABS/ASA that can handle the higher temperatures of the print chamber.

Printed in eSun PETG. I really like it! Now it doesn't touch the top panel anymore! 😁 I only don't know how to remove it if necessary. 😅😋

Removal is tricky, id say you break it when removing. Its a balance between holding on to the coupler or falling off. I just bend forward and pop it off. So maybe printing more than one is sugested.

I recently tested an upper tube guide. The product performs its task of preventing tube twisting, but during installation, I found that the material used, PLA, proved fragile and broke easily. I would recommend considering the use of a more durable material like PETG to ensure greater long-term durability.

Id recomend ABS, it can get hot up there!

I had thought that PLA wouldn't be suitable, given the high temperatures there. Indeed, I removed it immediately. Thank you anyway for the advice. 💪🏼

Printed well with a few minor tweaks to the PETG profile, but unfortunately did no solve my retraction issue. I am convinced it is the spools. With or without ring adapters some spools seem to cause issues sometimes. I might have to look into a re-spooler.

Have you tried a diff. spool of PETG? You could try changing temps as well.

It printed fine, just didn't solve my problem. The polymaker black PLA spools seem to be the problem. With or without ring adapters I keep getting failed to pull back from the extruder and retraction errors.

Printed beautifully and looks great with the black carbon fiber filament the printer came with. Thank you!

Nice print, though not sure where the defects comes from. I print on an X1C, and use BL PETG Basic White / BL filament profile. I only have this filament, so cannot test with other brand, or roll just now. I believe I did do filament calibration when I opened the roll, and drying. Maybe need to try it again, before printing a spare. If I do - I will of course edit this, if it turns out to be a filament issue. With that said, the defects do not hinder its function + can be cleaned up partly.

I’d say slow down the print. using white filaments all flavors can be an issue unless calibrated. white filament is very finicky due to its properties/composition.

only unwrapped the white PETG, but have a black one as well. Using Bambu default/auto selected print settings for their filament, but sure slow down and/or try black filament I can try. All white Bambu PLA/PLA Tough prints great though at default settings, but did hear PETG can be more tricky.

Nice! And thank you for taking the time to test for me! I'm test printing another version now (No need to replace yours). Smoothing a bit more and added another support brace.
