Is there any mods or plans to raise the lid? I've been having trouble with my filament feeding into the extruder. It would help tremendously if the lid were a few inches taller so it didn't kink when it gets warm in there.

There is currently no plan on changing the top lid of the N-Series printers. There are a number of non-invasive printable mods out there for the top lid adjustment you might be able to use.

DIY solution, print 4 of these and have your local hardware store cut strips of acrylic to length to make a "lid extension" I've confirmed they fit well in the corners of the N2 and N2 Plus and will work. They have a lip that secures the upper lid. https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:980261
