Most PTFE tubing used in 3D printing is simply ‘good enough’ and is chosen based on the closest size available for the given filament diameter, but in the end, it’s just a tube that carries your filament. Capricorn is the first company who is manufacturing PTFE tubing specifically for use in 3D printing. Whether you have 1.75mm or 3mm (2.85mm) filament the Capricorn XS tubing offers more consistent performance for your printer.
In addition to the tight tolerance of XS tubing, this PTFE also has special high-lubricity additives that makes filament slide through easier than any other tubing. Printing with rough filaments like wood or metal fills is no big deal for this slippery tubing. This lubricity combined with the tighter tolerance also allows for lower retraction settings since issues of hysteresis are effectively eliminated.
