    I need help with my school robo E3 3D printer. I'm the STEM Specialist in a public schools in NM. We have problems with the filament Guide tube getting clogged to no end. I don't know the size of the guide tube and where to get them. Thanks!

    moved to E3 forum.
    @Geof can probably assist you.

    The size of the tube is likely 2mm PTFE (but I don't have one to check)
    If it is 2mm, then Amazon sells it.

    Sorry for the late reply. It’s just standard ptfe tubing. Nothing special. Most times the issue is right where the tubing seats. Normally can clip off the end. Push it back in and continue on. Sorry sold off my E3 so haven’t got one to take photos of.
