I had to scale the Z-axis about 120% to fit perfect.
With the new extruder the printerhead is not been able to go over the wooden plate because of the height of the temperature sensor. 
Just found that there is some risk that the cover damages the cloth around the heater wire :(

So take care and make sure the wire can move freely without friction against the cover!

Instructions

Print as provided. I used 0.2mm layers The cover has tiny overhanging edges at the end that snap over the wooden plate. Once in place it sits very firmly around the printhead.

Weighs about 19 grams (printed in Cura with 25% rectangular infill and 3 solid layers)

There is just enough room to slide over the X-axis blocks
