    I will say I hate with a passion the top enclosure. It is cumbersome to work around at times and I lose 20-30 mm of build volume. Does anyone else share my displeasure? Has anyone seen anyone getting rid of it or replacing it with something else? Maybe modding it? Looking for ideas or suggestions

    Other than providing a minimal amount of rigid support to the tops of the z-rods, the cover seems mostly cosmetic. One could create a triangulated set of braces to cup the tops of the rods and extend to the base, curving the supports as desired to recover the lost volume.

    I don't even run them with the cover on.
