Best Fan for Ultimaker Original

Recommended Posts

Posted · Best Fan for Ultimaker Original

I have a used Ultimaker Original that did not come with a fan installed.

Any recommendation for a fan (single or dual) and shroud I should install?

Noctua 40mm is good - powerful for the size and very very silent.

Though if you are focused on printing PLA, a crossflow fan is a better direction entirely.

What is a cross fan, is it mounted on the print head? I plan on printing various materials, so not sure if that changes things

There is a whole thread about it here in the forum. You find it best by googling it with 'site:umforum.ultimaker.com'

Thank you. I'm assuming this is the thread you are referring to, I will post it below in case anyone else is interested in installing a crossfan:

Yes, this is exactly the thread I meant. I wrote my previous post on the smartphone and therefore couldn't add a link.
