The BLIZZARD is a fanmount replacing the original one of the Ultimaker 2. First of all the BLIZZARD brings much more airfolw from the right fan. But also on the left side, the airflow is guided much more efficient to the nozzle. It reduces vibrations an noice.

I was using the "Spirit Ultimaker 2 Fan Mount 2" myself. Lately my tempraturesensor lost contact to the heaterblock. So I had to disassamble the printhead. While remounting the Spirit fan mount i broke the holder. Searching for something new I found the "Laber um2-dual-fan-shroud".

I took the best ideas of both fan shrouds and designt my own "UM2 FanMount BLIZZARD". You can find more information in the PDF documentation.

I'm working on a version of BLIZZARD for the Olsson Block. Stay tuned.

I like the idea of the internal guides to direct air and support the roof while printing it.

I'm wondering if the duct wouldn't work better if it were in two pieces, with no thin flat pieces joining the right and left fan ducts?

That would pretty much eliminate the parts that get overheated and tend to melt.
