Hi, I have been printing with PVA and PLA and the powden tube popped out during the last print. Luckily the print didn't fail completely. But how can I stop this from happening?

    This happened to me some time ago, and I don't remember if I got the solution from here or from 'another network', but the issue was that the fitting that holds the tube into the feeder was defective, as in had a weak grip.

     

    I ordered a supply of replacements (third party) and popped one in and it has not happened since.

    Thanks, which third party product did you get?

    I just looked at the mailing bag and I can't make out the actual vendor, but I got it through Amazon just by searching.

     

    I know that Dynamism sells them individually.  I got a whole bag full for less than what they would charge for one plus shipping.
