Fillament guide tubes damaging my cover

Postby Ronvp » Thu Jul 19, 2018 12:38 pm

I just got my new Pro2 and noticed that the filament guide tubes are really scratching up the plastic cover. Not a big deal, but it makes the printer look cheap and messy.. Are there any remedies (other than not putting on the cover)??

Print blocks to raise the cover.

I really like to be able to have the cover all the way closed, so building on your suggestion: gluing a frame together and place it below the cover may do the trick.. My first plan is to wrap some very soft material around the tubes first to see if that helps..

Jooo, a rough grid (so that you also see something through it) would be an idea ...
