Hey Stephen, it might be just the tip that’s encountering resistance. If the filament moves smoothly after it left the other end, then it’s all OK :)
Hello Patrick, collet ring is not necessary if your black collet works as it should.
If your collet is unable to properly hold the tube and lets it go over time, then please contact our support to receive a replacement (you can use email - email@example.com or livechat - shop.prusa3d.com/).
Hi there, that doesn’t sound like it’s related to the tube in this case.
In case you’ve taken the hotend apart, you might want to double check the assembly with the E3D official manual:
Perhaps something wasn’t re-assembled properly near the heaterblock, and that magnifies the heatcreep.
Hi Graham, it’s referring to the parts that you will be left with after disassembly.
Hi there, the warning refers to any physical debris that might get in between the nozzle and push the bed away from it. As long as it’s only a thin “coat” of old filament, then you’re good to go.
Hi there, everything sounds good :)
Hello Les, you can always send your suggestion here: firstname.lastname@example.org :)
Hello Matt, the zip tie will always be able to move a bit. Just don’t push the probe too hard :)
Hello Les, it doesn’t matter as long as you don’t damage the tube (for example crush it with tools).
Hello Les, position of the blade is shown in the next step (21).
The blade would not cut the filament that remained in the selector.
It has to be inserted that way to cut the filament when returning to the previous extruder.
