Do you have issues with diameter changes in your filament? Thingiverse user DieselG uses filament in diameter from 1.65mm to 1.85mm but he encounters a lot of problems. How did he solve it? He designed a MK7 filament guide spring loaded with ball bearing to auto compensate for the diameter change. It is pretty simple design but useful.

DieselG has shared instruction, non-printed parts list and .stl file here if you would like to print one out for your Makerbot 3D printer.
