removed the plastic fan mount again

I was using this fan mount;

but just placed back the metal original as the printed one deformed at the left side, near the heatblock/nozzle. Basically just melted and sagged down a little, probably about 3mm, but deformed over a width of about 1 cm.

I had printed it in XT.

Have you put in place the "Fan Heat Shield" ? Because otherwise is normal ...

For my UM2 I use THIS one (modification of the one you used) and with the alu shield (taken from a can of beer) I have NO problems :)

I don't like that one cause you need to take off the fans to remove it (change nozzle to much for that).

The one I used was/is easier in that respect.

do you have a picture of how you mounted this piece of alu ?
