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.

    • "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.
