What buyers say about Capricorn Bowden PTFE Tubing XS Series 1 Meter for 1.75mm Filament
This tube has a higher temperature resistance than the stock tube, which means that I have been able to turn up the heat and not melt my PTFE tube inside the head break, which is what caused the need for a replacement.
The new tube makes it easier to dial in the retraction and it's also one of the two upgrades I recommend to any ender 3 style 3D printer.
One of the two upgrades I recommend to any ender 3 style 3D printer is the yellow stiff bed springs.
The price is reasonable and the product is good, so I decided to try it out for my Ender 3 Pro.
The size and length for my Ender 5 plus is perfect, it fits the filament nicely, and seems to be working better than the regular tubes so far.
Is it possible to use this to replace the ptfe tube in my prusa i3 hotend?
The MK3s use a chamfered end and a countersunk end, so if you can modify them, it should work well.
Is this acceptable for an Anycubic?
I don't know, if your machine used a 1.75mm filament.
Is it a genuine Capricorn tube?
It's for Genuine Capricorn tube, so make sure to order it from an authorized seller.
Has anyone used this to solve heat creeps?
It is very difficult to replace internal heater block tubing.
Is the cutting tool necessary or can it be done with an exaxto and a steady hand?
If you think you can make a perfectly perpendicular cut, you could use the factory cut end on your element, or you could cut by hand.
