Looking for a short enclosure hood for UM2 (or one with a tapered rear/upper face?)

Recommended Posts

I have my UM2 on a desk surface where there is a shelf above it. So ideally I'd like a hood that is no more than 85mm / 7.25" above the top "deck of" the UM2.

I have an acquaintance that said his previous employer bought a hood for their Ultimakers. I had the impression from his description that the rear face was slanted forward on the top edge. This would make it easier to keep the machine where it is because the shelf is only over the rear edge of the machine. I think he said he found the design on the Ultimaker forums but doesn't remember the name of the design and I can't find it either.

If someone can remember what that design might be called or found, I'd really appreciate it.

An 85mm tall hood would let the tube & wire harness clear, and stay under the shelf, even after factoring 6mm panel thickness. So it can be either way, though the 85mm hood would be the simplest solution.

I might just end up developing my own, I was just hoping for something quicker.

The bellows might not be a bad way to go either.
