Fan duct hinge won't fit


#1

I was so close to finishing the kit when I ran into a problem I don’t understand. It’s the part where the fan duct connects to the extruder.

The fan duct won’t fit. There is a piece right next to the hinge that blocks it.

I thought it might be some extra plastic but I wanted to double check with you guys.
Or did I skip a step somewhere in the videos?

Thanks

That little bit is the support material that supports the hinge during printing. You can just trim it off with a pair of wire cutters or needle-nose pliers and then the duct will fit right on.

If you spin the model around you can see it here - it looks like a little box under the piece that the duct fits onto:

Thanks! I was hoping it was extra plastic.
