Bowden Tube End Cut not Square

Recommended Posts

I am assembling my Ultimaker kit and the Bowden Tube End Cut is not Square.

The directions stress that it must protrude exactly 8mm but it measures 8 mm on the high side and 7.45 mm on the low side.

If this is truly critical then Ultimaker needs to build a jig that consists of a 6.5 mm diameter tube 100 mm + long mounted in a block with a slit square to the tube so that you can use a utility knife razor blade to achieve a square cut when the tube is forced straight in the tube.

    • "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.
