    The Painters tape i was using i ran out it was the 3 inch and if you use a puty knife it comes off pretty easy. With the 1 inch its a hit or miss and a pain. On my other printers i use hair spray because it has a heated bed that works awesome. after print is done just let bed cool down print slides off no prying. or if you don't want to wait again use putty knife to pry off wants a corner is up pops off. One day i will put a heated bed on the Cube 3. don't know why they never did because its the norm for 3d printers even ABS stays flat.

    0217171905.jpgTry tubing to make sure it fits. Its going to be tight thats what you want.
    0217171905a.jpgYou want it to fit like this.
    0217171906.jpgNow the fun part. you have to use very sharp knife to cut a small v slit in the tube all the way around. Yes its a pain but not that hard. Take your time and dont cut your self.
    0217171908.jpgHere is the NEW tubing and the stock tubing that you will have to drill out the new tube to accept the stock tube inside of it.

    0217171912.jpgIt should look like this. Again take you time drill slow.
    0217171916.jpgThen slide stock tube into extruder as it was when you removed it measure to the new tube cut and insert in the new tube just like the pic.
    0217171921.jpgYou must also drill out the other side of the plastic encloser so the tube will fit and close. Its going to be tight thats what you want.
    0217171922a.jpgHere is everything completed on the extruder end as you see the tube is inside both the extruder and the new tube. push together as other pics will show.
    0217171924a.jpgShould look like this. Its a pain getting the spring and all together just take your time.
    0217171926.jpgAfter many tries. many shots of moonshine, many times throwing my tools i got it LOL! then snap back on top piece and your done!
    0217171933.jpgI used electrical tape to make sure it does not come apart. just a little security. I have printed like this for a while and no problems. i did notice that the extruder is now stresss free.
    Now onto the other part.

    - - - Updated - - -

    0217171936.jpgYou have to cut a little bit around the the tube. it will fit tight.
    0217171937.jpgShould look like this. Now put the other end together and srew it with the 2 corners.
    0217171939.jpgNow just put it all back together and happy printing!

    I'm pretty sure the moonshine is NOT optional!

    He said "carefully..." quite a few times. Moonshine is in order -after- you were NOT careful

    Thermo, your tubing is certainly much closer to size than what I received from McMaster-Carr.
    Nice work keeping it tidy
