I recently managed to firmly clog my bowden tube with custom filament and in trying to remove the offending material i slightly damaged the tube. i would like to order a replacemnt for the S5 does anyone know where i might find this in the UK as i have not been able to find any anywhere?

 

Many thanks

Your Ultimaker reseller should have them or if not can order them for you. 

Check the Ultimaker site, for the nearest reseller in your area.

Most resellers don't have all parts in their webshop (except @fbrc8-erin which has tons of parts listed) but they still have the parts in stock or can order them for you.

@cecilhad: See Smithy's comment above. Just contact an Ultimaker reseller in France, it is very likely that they will be able to help you out.

HI Yeah,

 

I did actually find it as smithy suggested through an ultimaker reseller. However, they did not have it listed on their website. they only had the ultimaker 3 bowden tubes listed. i had to phone up and email them to get it sorted out so i would say it is very much worth getting in toch with any local resellers (there should be a list on the ultimaker website) to ask.

3dsolex sells bowden's and also the "super slip" teflon bowden which actually improves print quality a little (but is opaque) and I sell 3dsolex parts in my store for people in USA - thegr5store.com
