just a couple small things that have been bugging me

first of all, with such a large print volume on the N2+ why is there no way of passing filament in from outside while the cover is on? this makes large prints with ABS very difficult since a 1kg spool of material is not always going to be sufficient, I tried to design a modification that would allow for pass through, but it didn't quite fit, with a couple modifications it should work (the corners need fillets and some of the dimensions aren't toleranced properly). I have attached the STLs for the parts

second of all, why does the printed part for the filament guide system only fit when the clear plastic part of the print head is removed? I just tried to use it and the filament in the right nozzle bent outward instead of feeding into the nozzle properly, I mean seriously, why are you trying to basically push a rope without a guide? now I need to design a modification for the modification that you supplied to make it fit properly...

For the second problem, here I have newly modified ones. Please help test whether it works for you.
I have uploaded all the types of the models, you can just test the type you have.

thanks, how do I remove the metal parts from the printed part that came with the machine?

That was screwed into, and you may be better to get some tools to threading the newly printed one.
No need to remove now. You can firstly printing it out, and check the size whether it fits first.

I made a slight modification to the dual part so that it would work better (having one of the long sides not have a protrusion was causing it to slide off the print head assembly) this is the STL for my modification
