    Modify the Cube3 Cartridges to accept 3rd party filament (WIP)






    Probably one of the biggest keypoints on the Cube3 series is their sthetic appealing, so in order to keep most of it, sooner or later we'd need to create a fancy spoolholder either in the upper part or under its guts... For now, this is my own version of how to modify the Cube3 carts to accept any third party filament and keep the carts as unmodified as possible:

    0. Patch your Cube3 Firmware with the software HACK first!

    1. Apply force, or any other tool like a screwdriver to gain access to the insides of the cart. There are many tutorials on opening carts on youtube. Simply follow the one you like best.

    IF your cartidges are the OLD version (no Window), cut this part:




    ...and this one:




    IF your cartidges are the NEW version with the popup plastic Window, remove it.


    4. Discard, recycle or save for future use this part:

    I like my unspooling protector. Most 3rd party filament spools will uncoil in the cartridge housing. This can cause binding in severe rat-nesting cases. What is the second mod for?

    The first mod is to allow space to work the tube outside the cart.
    The second mod is to allow glueing the small tube up to the alu part. I'll show you the pics soon, Im working on them
