Ah!

Thanks for that. There's nothing in the manual about it and its not shown in the "What's in the box" page. I assumed it was some sort of test or calibration aid.

Just had a look and I can see where it fits. It doesn't want to go in though, but its printing at the moment and I don't want to disturb it too much. I'll fit it later.

    Actually, the filament guide is very good to use even for single extrusion.

    When having fresh rolls that barely fit a spool they are helpful, as well as for very long prints when the a complete roll of filament is not perfectly rolled up.

    See this thread for more examples:

    (Ultimaker started shipping it after I, Ian and others reported that is was really needed/useful).
