Printer Lid Height

Postby TheBLOK » Wed Jan 24, 2018 4:34 pm

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.

I modeled a lift for the cover, it was causing a specific issue with Proto-Pasta's CCPLA, and this resolved it 100%:
