I modified IRobertI's Alternative feeder V2 to work with 1.75mm filament and a 2/4mm (ID/OD) bowden tube.
Only the modified parts here, you also need to print the rest of the parts from: https://www.youmagine.com/designs/alternative-um2-feeder-version-two
Instead of a grommet i use a bowden coupling and a small piece of bowden tube at the entry point for the filament.
The bowden tubes should end in the 4mm holes flush with the printed surfaces, and you should countersink the ends to ease the insertion of filament.
If you want to use it as a second feeder as on my pictures you need to print all the parts mirrored.
Materials and methods
- Printed parts from this object
- Printed Yoke, Arm and Latch from IRobertI's Alternative feeder V2
- The parts from the old feeder plus one 30mm M3 and one 14(ish)mm M3.
- Two 4mm bowden couplings
Issues are used to track todos, bugs or requests. To get started, you could create an issue.
Is the bowden collet, just the plastic part, or is there an insertable metal bit?
Please, somebody can tell me, where is the complete model. Since I do not see the pieces that hold and push the filament, where the screw goes to adjust. Thank you very much.
Hi Erik, I saw that you made the change by switching to 1,75mm. I have taken the olsson block of 1.75 mm 3dsolex wanted to know if the ring in STL that is on this site is fine for replacement of the spring, I have to be changed since it changes the coupler PTFE?
Just made my first print with this today, and it works great!
