    Hi all.
    I am almost there with my build. I have all the axis rods and belts good to go. Z axis and the bed move smoothly up and down. But the x axis double print fan (think i am calling it correctly) just seems too far below the nozzles.
    I tried pushing it all the way up but it still hangs below the nozzles. This can't be right.
    I have the nozzles in all the way with the grub screws set but can't get the fan high enough.
    This is one step that is stopping me here.
    Hopefully you can tell by the pictures.

    Any ideas? Or do I need more coffee and a new eye exam?

    Thanks!

    More coffee sounds good...
    Turn it 180° around the Z axis, the fan and the shroud...

    That did it!
    Thanks Alex again!

    Is there screws or something to put into the ooze bucket to hold the rubber wiper?

    No problem and no the stock wiper is just push in... Didn't work for me so I had to make an update part but someone designed a wiper with screws for easy assembly... Must be somewhere around here, don't find it atm...

    http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1535445 is the updated wiper bracket. I need to get around to printing one as I can never get mine level.

    I never got mine level, but I at least got it to bulge where the nozzle comes across during docking, which I guess is all that counts.
