Bowden Tube


Recommended Posts

Posted · Bowden Tube

Hey,

for my modification I need an bowden tube thats a bit longer than the stock one. When I'm searching for PTFE tube, I can't find Tube with inner diameter 3mm / outter diameter 6mm.

Most of the tubes have 4mm on the inside when outter diameter = 6mm. Does anyone know where I can buy that tube so that I cant cut my own length from it?

    I am not sure, but I think I have seen Bowden tubes at the Bondtech shop where you can order per cm or so. 

     

    Yeah just saw it! But it's 20€ shipping for me..

    ...in addition: Ultimaker printers do not use bowden tubes with metric dimensions (AFAIK).

    You probably want one with 1/4 inch outside and 1/8 inch inside diameter.

    Where are you located? Here's another example in USA: https://www.captubes.com/

     

    Yeah I just had this Idea too. The one I ordered from Amazon is 4mm inner diameter, 6mm outer diameter and it works quite good. Maybe I would have trouble with flexible filament...

     

    I'm located in Germany. On  German Amazon I can't find any inch-tubes. US shops seem to have very high shipping costs for just a tube worth 20 bucks

     

    Edit: Just noticed that my tube does not work. Outer diameter is too small so it pulled itself out of the holder...

    not Amazon, but reasonable shipping costs:
