A hook to restrain the movement of Bowden tube and cable on Ultimaker 2.

Version 3 features adjustable position for the hook. It also allows the tube to move in Y axis to reduce unnecessary bending. The length is slightly shorter than the spool holder.

Past versions:
Version 1 and version 2 has different position of the hook. 1 goes more to the left, and 2 goes more to the right.
Both v1 and v2 restrain the tube to the edge of the printer, which would create extra bending while the printhead reset to home position.

Every Thursday is #3dthursday here at Adafruit! The DIY 3D printing community has passion and dedication for making solid objects from digital models. Recently, we have noticed electronics projects integrated with 3D printed enclosures, brackets, and sculptures, so each Thursday we celebrate and highlight these bold pioneers!

Have you considered building a 3D project around an Arduino or other microcontroller? How about printing a bracket to mount your Raspberry Pi to the back of your HD monitor? And don’t forget the countless LED projects that are possible when you are modeling your projects in 3D!
