UPDATE: I added the 4 holes missing for the right fan. Improve the quality print of the OEM fan base.

A few layers may be needed. I've seen people using 7-8 layers for fan base covering entirely the nozzle.

I've been thinking about getting some kapton tape recently, would a single layer of tape be enough, or would I have to use multiple like you did with the aluminum paper?

I printed it in PLA with a small heat shield. You can make one with aluminium paper. I folded 4 or 5 layers and placed it around the sides in the opening of the nozzle. Otherwise you can use kapton tape.

Curious what material you used to print this and how has it held up so far? Right now I only have PLA, but wasn't sure if this was fine, since it doesn't stand up to heat very well. Maybe I should get some Colorfabb XT filament, or similar, that can withstand greater temps?

Excellent result, though because it was made with the original fan housing the right hand side isn't perfect - I will be making a new fan housing, using this new fan housing, so hopefully it'll be a final version!
Feedback:
Zetoff fan housing, printed on UM2 with standard fan housing.
