Good fan shroud for hot end v2

Recommended Posts

Hello,

It seems to me that most of the fancy fan shrouds designs available on thingiverse may not be compatible with the new hot end, as the aluminium heating block is now a few mm lower (it's true at least for the ones having a ring around the nozzle)

Obviously, I received my hot end v2 only a few days after I burnt the stock fan shroud on my heated bed, and printed

as a replacement (of course, after 4 unsuccessful trials), and this one is not compatible :?

Is anyone working on such shroud for hot end v2, or do you think it's the end of "ringed" fan shrouds? It that case, could you tell me which shroud you are using with your hot end v2?

Thanks

JP

I've replaced my fan shroud with the printable stock version, which looks the same as the stock, but is printable and doesn't unfold or shag like the stock.

My dual extrusion setup has the same issue, and I found the stock fan shroud pretty good on airflow actually.

Thanks Daid, i will give it a try. I guess i must print it with ABS (i built a heated bed, and i'm afraid it will sag if i print it with PLA)?

I would also take this opportunity to thank you for all what you bring to the community, obviously Cura, but also all your constructive and pertinent contributions (even when you have to answer for the 100th time to the same question, asked each time by a different person ;) )

So: Thanks a lot!

JP

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
