Hey guys, could you please help me out.  I have a cube 2nd gen trying to use bulk hack with makerbot pla 1.75mm. The problem is that half way through printing, the filament starts to get stripped by the gear. If i loosen the gear, then the black and white stripped gear stops spinning because it cant grip the filament. I know its trial and error but can someone pls tell me how to set the correct tension of it using a spanner (e.g. place the filament first and then put the bolt on) Pls help guys. It would be much appreciate. Cheers !

The steps I did:
1. Disassembled the print head.
2. Very slightly filed down the triangular notch that the pulley rests against to allow it to move very slightly further from the gear.
3. Re-assembled the print head with a fresh piece of matterhackers PLA inserted between the gear and pulley when tightening the 7mm nut.

I'm not sure #2 was actually necessary. #3 made a big difference as on my first attempt I tightened the nut without a piece of PLA in place and there results weren't good. Since doing those things, I've ran probably 40 hours of printing on it using matterhackers PLA in 3 different colors with zero feed problems!

The only problem I have now is sometimes the object will come unstuck from the print plate before it's finished printing, but I'm not sure what can be done to ever make that 100%. Applying CubeStick seems more of an art than a science.

I've found no need for 1.6 mm filament or an expensive add-on. ::) Just use the instructions in this very thread. Easy and free!

Silly Question will this work with a chip from a cartridge that is near empty?

Yes. You can even press "stop" when the printer is warming up, before it actually starts printing.

Posting in english might help!   I believe this question has been asked and answered a number of times in this very thread.  Just go back to page 1-5 and read the posts.

So sweet.  THanks for the tip.   Sounds like a great option for those not willing to remove and replace the electronics or tweak the cube files. 

Regards
Dan

Does anyone have the dimensions for the cube tube? Mine got misplaced in a move and my bulk filament mount needs the cube tube. I absolutely refuse to pay $30 for 3 1 ft pieces if 19 tubing.

I currently have a CubePro, which has a similar cartridge.  Has anyone successful bypassed the cartridge on one of these printers?
