two part filament cleaner

Filament cleaner is an important part of a 3D printer which often is not present. This is a two part design that requires two cable ties. Easy to refill, clean and change.

My new Vertex printer blocked after one week on old dusty filament, and the filament cleaners out there require feeding the filament through it. So this is a two part piece you can remove clean, and reattach using cable ties.

If you don't have a filament cleaner yet, print this one or another and install it today!

Materials and methods

Print the design two times.
Cut a piece of sponge that fits inside, add some minaral oil (not much), add over your filament before it feeds into the nozzle.
