This filament guide screws to your printer as a replacement for the cable cover, and you will never loose or forget it again!

It will ONLY fit the regular Ultimaker 3, not the extended version, because of the different placements of the holes for the cable cover. I might make one for the extended if it is requested.

Print it like in the image above from Cura, and you will not need any supports at all.

Materials and methods

Print the 2 parts, remove the guide bushing from the original UM3 filament guide and push it into your printed part.

To screw it to the printer, you'll need two M3x20 screws, two M3 nuts and two M3 washers.
