Is PETG harder than PLA?

It is also more durable than PLA as well as less stiff. Generally, PETG is seen as a mixture between ABS and PLA. That means, it takes the best qualities of both to a certain degree. For example, PETG is stronger than PLA (though weaker than ABS) and more flexible than ABS (though less flexible than PLA).

How tall is the Ender 3 filament feed tube?

Please give the original creator a big THANK YOU for all of the work he has done for the community via Thingiverse. Files set to print at 60mm/s, 100% infill no supports. .12mm layer height.

How to change PTFE on Ender 3 feed tube?

Push your supply ptfe into the fitting till it stops, pull up on lock collar and zip tie or put clip on. Enjoy your new less back pressure flow, as the small void left by the push pull nature of the design of the original flow path have been eliminated. and your bowden fitting will see less forces trying to push the tube back.
