Since this was requested quite a few times by our customers, we have decided to develop an easily printable filament guide.

This was designed for the Ultimaker 3 series but will work on an Ultimaker 2+ as well since they share the same feeder on which the guide is to be mounted.

We welcome any suggestions you may have in regards to the improvement of this filament guide.

Version Control

Materials and methods

This can be printed using any material you like (except soft, flexible materials), but needs some support. Use the 'touching buildplate' setting in Cura.
