  1. Hi guys, Thanks for all the quick answers. I've now managed to print on a friends printer an Ultimaker extruder clip (http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:46157) as recommended by Francis and that works fine. I've been making some "torture tests" and so far it did not pop out a single time. Thanks again for all the support, great community here! Mich
  2. Thanks a lot for the quick answers guys. Unfortunately, its going from bad to worse. So far, I've removed that tape and I scraped the inside of the Bowden cable with a razor, to reduce chafing. This did not help, it's seems to be popping off even more often. As for temp, speed and layer height: I've been printing with PLA, 100mm/sec max or slower, .1mm layer and around 210-220C. And I've tried to print the diverse solutions you proposed, but the cable always comes off during the print. I even tried to hold it manually, but I don't want to force anything. Anyway, it came off again. I did ma
  3. Hi all, I am a proud new owner of a few weeks old Ultimaker. Until now, the machine has been performing fine and as a newbie, I've learnt quite a lot these past weeks. :smile: Recently however, I am not able to print anymore, as the Bowden cable keeps popping out of the quick-fit coupling all the time. I did replace the tape around the Bowden cable (I came prepared like that from Ultimaker) and put it in tightly, but that does not help. The feeding is fine, the filament goes forward nicely, but I guess that the friction is simply too high when it passes from the feeder into the bowden cable.
