Fans hitting wall of printer

Recommended Posts

Two options. Try to bend the fan shroud slightly so that it no longer hits the wall.

Or adjust the end stop so that it activates sooner. Either by loosening the two screws that holds it in place and sliding it over a bit. Or bend the metal tab so that it activates earlier. You'll find the end stops in the back left, top corner of the machine.

A picture of your fan shroud would help - look at the gap between the left and right shroud to the center part of the head. Are the gaps symmetrical? If so adjust the limit switch. If not bend it tighter.

    • "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.
