3D model description

With this model we can join strands of 1.75 mm and use our material to the end.

It is designed to use a piece of Capricorn PTFE tube of 4 mm outside diameter and 2 mm inside diameter and 1.75 mm filament.

The idea is to assemble the Capricorn tube as shown in the pictures and put one end of the filaments to be soldered on each side. We will use the flame of a small candle (recommended) or a lighter to heat the center of the Capricorn tube for a few seconds pushing the two strands towards the center. Wait until it is completely cool and push the shorter side of the filament out of the holder.

The part where the filaments have been joined will have approximately the inside diameter of the Capricorn tube, we should sand it a little so that it slides effortlessly through our printer guide tube.

We may have to repeat the process if the filaments don't stick well the first time. With a little practice you will get strong bonds in a few seconds.

I've tried it with PLA and PETG.
