Bowden clamp doesn't fit

Recommended Posts

Posted · Bowden clamp doesn't fit

Hello,

I'm buildings recently purchased Ultimaker with the V2 hotend. I am stuck at the extruded step 3.2.22-23. Although the Vowden clamp does fit in the front right hole of the milled 8A board, there is not enough room for the Bowden tube to fit in the clamp. I also tried inserting the clamp in the laser cut 8A board, and the Bowden tube also would not fit through the clamp. Should I use a dremel to widen the hole and/or thin 8A around the hole?

Thanks for your help!

Doh - the top board was upside down. For anyone that comes across this in the future, make sure the the drilled portion faces the inside of the extruded casing.
