Spare parts needed

Recommended Posts

I have two UOs, in each the bowden tube pops out of the hot end isolator coupler, disrupting the print and causing clogs. The tube is all scratched. I tried snipping the tube of one, it still pops out ... the coupler must be damaged, right? For some reason, Ultimaker's online payment service is unale to accept my payment via credit card. Does anyone know of an alternate source for these parts, preferably in the USA? Please advice. Thanks!

I had that problem on my UM2 half a year ago.

Solved it by printing a thicker clip to put force on the coupler, making it grab the bowden tube better.

It has worked perfectly since then.

I just uploaded the stl-file to youmagine in case you want to try this: https://www.youmagine.com/designs/ultimaker-bowden-clip-thicker-version

You should be able to scale it in the Z-direction if you need it to be thicker or thinner.

    • Architect Design Contest | People
      The goal of this contest is to design a set of people figurines that could be used in such a project to make an area, office or mall seem populated. 
      Think of different types of people in different environments, like walking people, people standing still, working people, and both men and women.

    • 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.
