This modified bottom part for the Ultimaker 2 printhead helped me to use a different fan for the hotend an a new fan shroud for the cooling.

It improves the cable management on the backside of the printhead. The cables not get squeezed anymore.

You have to sacrifice 3 mm in z-direction of your build volume.

Materials and methods

Strong PLA, I recommend 100% Infill, otherwise it won´t withstand the forces and the printhead assembly losens.
