  1. I received the new bowden from Ultimaker, mounted it and nothing works again (also tried a new nozzle to be sure the problem isn't regarding it)...no more plug but A LOT of grindings (i had used about 350g of transparent PLA during weekend to try get a working Ultimaker...with absolutely no success and a mountain of half printed enclosures)... Today, while completely desperated, i had reinstalled the "shock absorber bowden" but for my curiosity i had maked a little more change (i had used the cutted bowden piece from where i removed the plug with a Dremel..yes i know, it's a really brute forc
  2. Hi, it's a commonn fuel tube (i think whatever tube enough elastic can do the job); i have obtained it when i changed the old on my motorbike...i don't know if can help but i can see writed on it "Akron benz 5x9"...
  3. Watching TV while printing is fantastic!

  5. Wow...really nice! By the way my most important problem is i can't print anything before the "fuel tube addon"...this mean that, unfortunately, can't print the owen's fix or everithing else can help me (it fails every time for some reason, also with simple 50mm cube as you can see)...

  7. Hi, i want to share with you my experiences and my solutions...i received an Ultimaker about 1 month ago, 1 day to setup and 1 month to obtain a decent print...i had encountered ALL problems described there that involving extruder/bowden (plug, bowden slipping out from head, from motor and, of course, grinding...grinding a lot!)... After some big plug i need to cut the bowden various time and, at the end, the bowden tube became too short to working properly (i had contacted Ultimaker for this problems and they have sended some replacement parts...i think can arrive next week). While i'm wai
