6-22-19- So i was messing around and decided to shorten the guide alittle as i noticed after a while it started to flex alittle bit. I then decided to add 2 basic wire guides with holes for zip ties so that you can safely move the hotend wires out of the way. You may want to take a look at the pictures to see how i attached them.
the newer version is printer in black PLA with the zip ties attached in the pictures. the Gold PLA printed one you see was the older design. both STL's are available for download.
------IMPORTANT---- DO NOT OVER TIGHTEN THE ZIP TIES. this can cause your wires to not be able to move freely as your hotend makes its travel moves... i strongly suggest after this install before you tie things down to raise your Z axis up to the 230MM mark to make sure you have plenty of slack for the wires.
So i wanted to have a filament guide and also a cleaner installed to keep dust, and animal hair out of the nozzle so i remixed 2 awesome designs into 1 and it works awesome. simple design done in Tinkercad.
3D-Solutech Premium PLA
This model prints perfectly fine with no supports. at the very top of the guide it does get alittle steep, but it was fine for my print. you can add supports if you want there but i didnt need it and pictures shown have been done with no supports.
Ok, so once it is done printing you will be able to see how good your printer really is. if your settings are good, and your printer is calibrated it should be very easy to free the hinge up. be careful with it, its pretty strong, but can break if a lot of pressure is applied to it.
