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

Recommended Posts

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.
