Using Ultimaker 2 with side fans removed.

Recommended Posts

Posted · Using Ultimaker 2 with side fans removed.

Hey All.

I primarily do multiple object production prints where Im printing several objects at a time one at a time. I always print in ABS for the strength, temperature stability and flex so the side fans aren't used.

Printing this was I am limited to how many objects I can print at once because of the clearance needed for those fans.

Has anyone tried removing them and updating the printer settings for the new head dimensions? if so, what are they?

Thanks!

no I did not, but did you also think about the gantry height? you'll still have the issue of items higher than 48mm being knocked over by the axis if you fill up the bed.

Moved alternate nozzle size discussion to other thread! This thread is for discussing what is in the original post.

      Through this post I would like to further explain what we are doing, and what you could be doing. 
      Our efforts consist of 2 layers. First; connect medical institutions and hospitals to (local) 3D Printing hubs to help them print parts of which a 3D model already exists. And second, contribute to design the necessary part and then have it printed via a (local) 3D printing hub. Experts are available from within Ultimaker and from within our network of 3D printing experts.
