To achieve this goal I simply used my soldering iron !

I drilled a scrap piece of aluminium at the diameter of the tip of the iron and used it to melt the filament into a PFTE tube.

See this video to better understand !

The white clip to hold the iron in place on its support can be found on my thingiverse's channel here.
