Main fan issues

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

Awhile back I replaced the temp sensor and Nozzle/ hotend.

It seems that the wires have a tendency to interfere with the main fan occasionally depending on where the print head is. I have tried to reposition them multiple times, but wonder if anyone else has this problem or has tried to remedy it. I may try to slip all of them through a piece of heat shrink tube or other wire loom type think to keep them out of the way or interference. Since I am likely going to take it all apart again and reposition things is it worth changing anything else related to the main fans etc...

I plan on taking it back apart and making sure the wires are routed properly and free from damage. Does anyone have a picture of the wires coming down and to the fans, temp sensor and heater block? I just want to see if I can get a good idea of the proper slack and placement.

    • "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.
