    Ultimaker 2

    Izzy's Printer

    This is my main printer, it is modified with a bondtech feeder and running an Olson Block with a 35W heater and a ruby nozzle.

I think the construction of the top is slightly different and so the corner parts won’t locate properly.

Running the fans at 50-60% is definatly quieter, the only noise i really have is the retractions from the bondtech feeder.

The design only suits the standard 30mm fans, for several reasons 1) it keeps the printhead size and mass smaller still allowing for fast acceleration movements. 2) It doesnt need bigger fans, I designed these to reduce the back pressure that reduces the actual air moved by the fans that happens with the standard ducts. The gradual tapering shape reduces the buildup of the back pressure effect, when I measured the the actual output airspeed it was about double that of the standard duct with the same area for the opening, the majority of the time I run these at 50-60% speed maximum, I cant remember the last time I ran the fans at 100%. 3) the size of the 30mm fans allows the ducts to swivel and unclip to be easily removed, and also allows for the heat sink Han duct to be fitted. These work so well I don’t need 40mm fans and I think that would also affect the home position as the additional size would need to be allowed for, They took me a few days to redesign to get the shape and the improved airflow, so i wouldn’t be doing a larger size and I dont think uploading the origional cad files would be of any benifit to modify as its just as easy to make your own measurements of the items to then design your own to suit the 40mm fans.

Hi Christopher, I can do, but, a) are you just after the nozzle or the heater block as well, and if so which one. b) do you want the whole head assembly, fans, ducts and all etc. c) do you want it combined with the platform and if so in what point in relation d) you want a separate model that you can do what you want with. It would also depend if you had the extended as to the Z height position. If you have a CAD package you can get the files from GITHub and build your own assembly then export it as a single combined STL, combining in to S3D in the same manner as described in the instructions.

Hi Lee, Hopefully the pieces added with the suffex 3mmA should be ok for using 3mm Sheet, please let me know how you get on, Izzy
