Screws holding Fans in Place BAD DESIGN


Recommended Posts

Posted · Screws holding Fans in Place BAD DESIGN

The whole UM2 metal fan shroud is offal (sic). It is probably the worst single part on the UM2 - even worse than the feeder.

It is noisy, it wastes a lot of air-flow, and what air it does move mostly goes to the wrong place anyway.

I've printed a number of fan shrouds - IMHO, the most effective is by Izzy (search on youmagine).

    The fan shroud by Izzy does not use ANY screws, and swivels out of the way when you want to clean the nozzle.

    Not much point in griping about something you can fix by using the printer...
