Ultimaker Original TFT Coupler

Recommended Posts

Just saw that there's a TFT Coupler by 3dsolex on some shops. Anyone tested this? Can this last just a gazillion hours?

Just asking because I still have one umo hotend (I modded 2/3 printers to um2 hotend), and I will probably change the third printer to um2hotend, but since I might build a fourth printer this summer, this might be interesting to avoid coupler changes each 100-200h print time.

So.. Anyone can share some tests?

Found it on

Oh and more important, it's there a 1.75mm version??

3dsolex has 1.75mm of TFT coupler and also 1.75mm version of Olsson block. The TFT material from dupont is crazy expensive and can handle 255C for a year no problem. The only wear and tear will be mechanical abrasion from rough filaments.

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
