Fits like a charm on my Ender 3. But you have to to take care how to install it: smaller side is up! This way the bar slips under the vertical rail so that there is no need to shorten it! Took me some time to figure this out! Many kudos for this wonderful design!

Idea is nice but it does not fit on my Ender 3. It is 1 cm longer so I had to cut it to match the length on the front left rail (as shown on the picture). The profile also does not seem to fit well.

amazing for keeping debris out of the slot, does need to mention to unscrew the bottom screws too

What's the length of the vertical bar of both the gantry and the top bar where the spool holder sits on?

Anyone know the height of the verical v slot bars?

Another question, what's the length I need for that top horizontal bar that holds the filament spool and holds the frame together?

Thanks for the speedy reply! I'm going to go and print 2 200mm pieces and then slide them in to make one 400mm bar

I'm very happy with the look of these however they are NOT easy to install/remove. Taking out the 2 screws on the front of my Ender 3 does not allow the metal to pull away enough to install. I had to bend the metal front significantly in order to get these in, thankfully once reinstalling the screws the bend is not too noticeable.

They are very easy to install, you just didnt do it right. You unscrew the two on the front and you also unscrew the two on the top where the fan hole is. then you just push down on the front cover and it literally slides down on the left side. no need to BEND anything! That is Absurd!

You also have to remove the screw underneath the motherboard and possibly the one on top (don't remember which exactly). No bending required. It would be nice for the description to mention that though.

Made a few of these for my Geeetech A10. They fit the groove fine. I placed them in the front 4 grooves to keep debris out. I did have to cut them a little shorter but they slide in easily and look great.

How tight is the fit? Is it easy to remove?
