UM2+'s smaller build volume and hot end fan shrouds

Recommended Posts

Posted · UM2+'s smaller build volume and hot end fan shrouds

Hey all. I just upgraded my UM2 to an UM2+ and noticed the build volume has shrunk, specifically along the X-axis. My guess is this has to do with the differently-oriented cooling fans on the hot end. Previously, they were at about a 45-degree angle and now they point straight down, which can cause the right fan to butt up against the inner side wall (a problem I had with a similar fan shroud that I had printed myself a while back).

If I were to print a shroud that returns these fans back to a 45-degree angle, can I use Cura's settings to put the X-axis width back to the value of the stock UM2? I would assume so but don't want things freaking out on me over custom settings.

you can do this in the 'machine settings'. There are the sizes that the printhead including the fans are, and the bed size. You can check the differences between machines. Be careful with adjusting.
