Well, I cannot find my tension feeder guide whilst cleaning out the feeder. I am searching to see if I can find one to print, but so far, no luck. going through youmagine right now, but no luck so far.

You can always get the step file from the github and make it an STL, and print it with dissolvable supports (I don't think it would print well without them). If I remember, it's part 1962: https://github.com/Ultimaker/Ultimaker2Plus

 

I don't think I've ever come across a ready to go printable one from anyone yet.

Alrighty now...Thanks to the Lady Erin, I got the file and printed it out. Now, by the time I checked here, I had made my own. I am using it right now, but also printed the official version as a backup. But, after going through the process of making my own, well, I am going to definitely use it. The converted official version is on youmagine though.

 

The design is now on youmagine and soon on thingiverse.

Glad to help! I've totally gone and favorited that on YouMagine now so I can find it again later.
