Ultimaker 2+ fan setup - needs improvement?

Recommended Posts

Hi all:

Has anyone noticed any uneven cooling with the Ultimaker 2+ stock fan setup?

Is the stock UM2+ fan vents (horizontal oriented with metal shroud) an improvement over the UM2?

Should I try and print a mod fan shroud even for the UM2+?

I'm not too concerned with overhangs; but I would like to have even surface on all side of printed objects. I generally print slow with very small layer heights.

Thanks for any observations!
