What are the 3 small parts for?

hi CreativeTools a small question.

does it fit CTC dual extruder
and can you share what screaws and nuts I need to use?

Can I use it for my CTC Dual Extruder Duplicator 4?

hi kreidlerwicht!
does it fit CTC eventually?

Hi Bob,
why doesn't it fit?
I took some measurements in my CAD-Programm and can't find why it shouldn't.
Always thought that FlashForge, CTC etc are exact copies of Replicator 1..

Just a heads up, this does not fit on the Flashforge Creator if anyone was wondering. Wasted some money getting this laser cut only to realize I should have doubled checked the measurement.

Edit: Also, the pieces do not even fit together, the slots for the tabs are the wrong size. Lesson learned, just because the photos look good doesn't mean trust the files. Double check EVERYTHING before spending the money on the laser cutting for this project.

We are sorry to hear that this design did not fit your Flashforge Creator as you expected. We also need to point out that we designed this hood to fit the original MakerBot Replicator (wooden version), and only that model.

Regarding the tabs and slots the are designed to fit well and snuggly. We have lasercut many many of these hoods ourselves with the correct dimensions and results. Nevertheless it is important to make sure that the laser cutter hardware is correctly calibrated to achieve accuracy for the fitting parts.

The files are updated to a new version with some improvements

Do you have any plans for a REP 2 casing?
