Push to connect fitting for extruder on UM2?

Recommended Posts

Has anyone tried using a push to connect type of tube on an extruder upgrade by chance?

I have a design and left provisions for a 1/8" NPT fitting and am trying to figure if a push to connect will work instead of a compression type of fitting.

A push to connect fitting will generally allow the tube to be pulled out slightly so I don't know if this would cause issues. A compression fitting will be more of a rigid connection.

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
