Anyone done this?
My Cr-10 enclosure will require me to feed filament from the top of the enclosure so I'm looking at options to relocate my extruder or using a lot of ptfe tubing to allow me to do this.

I never used this particular one, but I did use the "Straight line" version I posted. Worked fine. Though now I think my next move is a direct drive. I have a few different models of direct drive mounts posted, just been keeping the printer running working on other projects that are slightly more pressing at the moment so I haven't had a chance to make the change. I think the direct drive will work best feeding from the top as you can just put a hole with maybe a rouded bushing in the enclosure top to get the filament down to the extruder.

Check this one out. https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2805897
