  1. ‣ Push the collet down ‣ insert the bowden and push it in with some force ‣ pull the collet up (with some force) while still pushing the bowden down ‣ insert the clip The original clip is 1.4mm thick. I designed clips with 1.5 mm, 1.6 mm, 1.7 mm and 1.8 mm to increase tension on the collet if necessary.

  2. The feeding is not blocked and all parts are originals. Even if it blocks I would expect the feeder to grind the filament (as reported frequently) instead of pushing out the bowden. I think I installed it correctly. I’m quite sure there is something wrong, but I don’t know what. Therefore the question about where the rotation should be absorbed.
  3. It is visibly worn out. We already cut it several times and then replaced it together with the collet. I just shortened the new bowden the second time. This helps for a short time, but then it happens again.
  4. It did it again… Is anybody able to shed any light on this?
  5. I disassembled (and reassembled) the feeder. Seems to be O.K.: no wear, broken parts or cracks as far as I can see. My assumption is, that if the printhead moves, the bowden transmits the head movement to the collet as it is quite stiff. Over time the bowden-collet connection wears out and the bowden wiggles out of the collets. Which part is intended to absorb the bowden movement, esp. the rotation? Should the collet rotate in the feeder-case, should the bowden rotate in the collet or should the bowden akt as a torsion-element?
  6. It is installed correctly. As deep as possible.
  7. We primarily print with PLA. I don’t know if it happens with other materials. Yes, the retainer-clip is in place. We changed the “white plastic thingy” (https://www.igo3d.com/Tube-Coupling-Collet) when we changed the bowden. igo3d is a official ultimaker reseller (https://ultimaker.com/de/resellers/de), so we assume both the tube coupling collet and the bowden are original parts. And, btw., it first happens with the parts that were mounted when we purchased the printer.
  8. Hello, Our UM3 started to push out the bowden-tube from the feeder during printing, destroying the running print. We cut the end of the bowden, this worked for one print sometimes. After doing this several times, we replaced the bowden and the coupling-collet on the feeder-side. This worked for some time, then the printer pushed the bowden out of the feeder again. This happens without visible reason: no clogged nozzle, etc. I would have expect that the feeder would rather grind the filament than push the bowden tube out of the feeder. Any hint? Is this a common problem with Ultimaker printers?
  9. Yes, that was the 100% problem. But the 1 % – 99 % problem remains. Cura does not generate infill between the inner and outer wall of the cylinder.
  10. Hello, I found a problem in my settings – sorry. With 100% infill it does fill. But with 99% or below there is no infill at all. I’m using 4.4.1 on Linux.
  11. Hi, I have the problem, that in one model, printed with the second extruder, the void in the cylinder can not be filled. As you can see in the attached screenshot, infill is set to 100% but the cylinder is not filled. UM3_Cura-bug.3mf
