Removing the Bowden Tube from the Head

Recommended Posts

Posted · Removing the Bowden Tube from the Head

Hey!

So I want to remove the Bowden tube from the hot head so I can attach it to a new mount for a syringe-extrusion setup.

How do I go about pulling it out? Do I need heat? Do I need to hold down a little white thing like when you remove the bowden from the back extruder?

Thanks! I'm cautious about pulling too hard before asking the community.

Jared

Remove the blue horse shoe, push down on the white piece as far down as it will go and you should then be able to pull the bowden out.

    • "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.
