    Hey! I have an Ultimaker, too. Still finding time to do the final tweaks to get it going. Looks like you are using the blue painter's masking tape that came with it, have you thought about using anything else? A visitor to the OlyMEGA table at the Seattle Mini Maker Faire says he uses automotive window tint film, scrubbed with a Scotch Brite pad to give it a little tooth and washed off with alcohol before using the first time. I'm anxious to try it, so I will no longer have seams.

    I'm pretty happy with the blue tape. The seams don't show on the final prints, and the bottom side is always a bit messy in my experience anyway. If you have questions about getting it going, feel free to reach out. I have done a lot of work to get mine running.

    I have had problems with the filament jamming. I'm told they had problems with the tubing sometimes being undersized inside. I've got some with a larger inner diameter now, but I have to get it going long enough with the old to print a new hose holder/clamp for the motor side. I've already printed a piece to make height adjustments for the Z switch much easier. I love Thingiverse!

    Looking at the blown-up original size image, I can see you've printed a replacement for the print-head side, a handle, and I think you've done something on the motor/feed end.

    yup. Are you local? I can help with printing parts, if you need. I have 4mm x 6mm tubing too, which works better for me than the 1/4 x 1/8" that comes stock.

    Sorta local... I'm in Lacey. I may take you up on the offer of help. I'm going to see if I can get it to print long enough to make the parts I need. The tubing clamp at the motor end is the first thing I need, as I cannot get the current tube out of the fitting and I can't get a replacement locally.

    I'm in West Seattle, so Lacey isn't too painfully far. Let me know. :-) As I said, I have plenty of tubing as well, so if you wanted to bring your bot up sometime I expect we can get it working.
