Fan Questions (UMO+)

Recommended Posts


So, let me start out by saying this. I'm very new to the whole 3D Printing thing as a whole, so apologies if I come off as ignorant.

That said, I recently had the wires of my print head fan on my Ultimaker Original +... Well, melt. I made the mistake of placing the wires too close to the nozzle, causing them to fuse. So, I have been looking through the spare parts, and I found out about the fan pack. Only problem is, I'm not sure if the pack would work with my Original +. I would assume so, but I'm trying to be cautious. Would the print head fan from the fan pack work with the Original +? Or do they not have the same vent?

If it is not compatible, where could I acquire a new fan to fit with my printer?

Again, apologies if this question has already been answered.

I think that you can ask support.ultimaker.com with a ticket and ask them. Other way it's to ask your reseller for the spare part.

Other way it's to cut the cables fused area and resolder it.

UMO fan pack isn't 24v so it shouldn't work? Maybe someone with the umo not plus can clarify this.

Umo fan cap has one 12v 50mm fan and one blower for the board of 24v. I would just search the fan model (on my second umo+ it's sunon) and buy one on ebay. On my other umo+ it doesn't have the sticker. Also measure how thick it's the fan because it use to be 7-8mm instead of the common 10mm.

      Q: For some users, abrasive materials may be a new subject matter. Can you explain what it is that makes a material abrasive when you are not sure which print core to use?
      A: Materials which are hard in a solid piece (like metals, ceramics and carbon fibers) will generally also wear down the nozzle. In general one should assume...

    • "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.
