The bowden tube has one end marked with blue tape. This end has been slightly drilled out to make the inserting of material easier.

  1. Take the bowden tube and place the end with the blue tape into the feeder quick fit coupling.
  2. Place the clamp clip around the tube coupling collet to lock the bowden tube in place.
  3. Place the other side of the bowden tube into the tube coupling collet on the print head. Push it through the print head housing, into the teflon coupler.

    Tip: Insert the screwdriver through the back of the print head housing to guide the bowden tube in place.

  4. Place the clamp clip around the tube coupling collet to lock the bowden tube in place. Make sure it stays fully inserted into the teflon coupler.
  5. Take the print head cables (PT100, heater cartridge and fan) and line them up with the bowden tube. Wrap the spiral sleeve around the print head cables, bowden tube and, when you reach the feeder, the feeder motor wires.
  6. Insert the spiral sleeve through the hole in the back panel below the feeder and guide all wires through the back right cable duct and hole in the bottom panel.
