Ultimaker S5 Bowden length?

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · Ultimaker S5 Bowden length?

Hi,

I ordered replacement Bowden tubes for my Ultimaker S5 from GoPrint3D here in the UK and i just want to see if the length as been changed by Ultimaker because the new Bowden tubes are about 6" shorter than the ones that come with my printer and this means when loading filament, the filament will hit the printhead on loading and keep trying to push it for 6" more and grinds a lump of the filament.

 

So i have to lift the tension arm when loading filament to stop it grinding, the bag they come in is all marked up for the Ultimaker S5

The Bowden Tube for the S5 is 850mm long and has the SKU 1373 (only the tube, no clips). The Bowden Pack with SKU 1696 is for all other Ultimaker printers but not the S5 (Bowden length 705mm).

Not sure why an official resell for Ultimaker is selling the SKU 1696 marked up as for the Ultimaker S5 then, they even had to ship it in from Ultimaker as they did not stock it.

I can't exactly answer you that question but there are those humans everywhere who sometimes make a mistake. 😉
The SKU I posted is meant to avoid confusions in future.

Many thanks,

 

I was guessing its likely been a packing error because as you can see from the image its marked up for Ultimaker S5, but clearly says its the 1696 and not the 1373 you are on about, i have contacted the resell to see if they can help because i have had to reinstall the old bowdens for now.

I have come across the same thing here in the US.  Just purchased some parts, including the bowden tubes, through Dynamism and they are short as well.
