  • 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.

    Common Questions

    Q:

    Is it possible to use this to replace the ptfe tube in my prusa i3 hotend?

    A:

    The MK3s use a chamfered end and a countersunk end, so if you can modify them, it should work well.

    Q:

    Is this acceptable for an Anycubic?

    A:

    I don't know, if your machine used a 1.75mm filament.

    Q:

    Is it a genuine Capricorn tube?

    A:

    It's for Genuine Capricorn tube, so make sure to order it from an authorized seller.

    Q:

    Has anyone used this to solve heat creeps?

    A:

    It is very difficult to replace internal heater block tubing.

    Q:

    Is the cutting tool necessary or can it be done with an exaxto and a steady hand?

    A:

    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.
