UMO+ Mods


Recommended Posts

Hi-

I just built a UMO+, and I have been browsing throught the forums looking at mods for the printer. For those of you who have the model—which mods do you find most useful and how hard are they to put together with basic electrical engineering knowledge?

Thanks-

    On my Original (not a +) I found the dual fans a great mod and there are a lot of clips available on YouMagine that can assist in closing the chamber.

    Can't find the second fan I downloaded back then. Does anyone have any recommended (dual) fanshrouds?

    I have a pair of foehnsturm's dual fan shrouds that are really concentrated, up to the point the normal UM fan can't push air through it at all. He probably had better fans. I can't find the topic on the forum. The search still gives me results with only 1 of the words I'm looking for first.

    What I am wondering about is what a good fan is, as the UM standard fan seems to be insufficient, although I don't have a second one, that might improve things a lot as you mention. I was running this shroud in single setup: http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:77107 Now I'm running a folded version of the UMO+ shroud, for safety with kids around ;)

    As for UMO upgrades:
