This is a shroud for the LulzBot Budaschnozzle 1.1 designed to protect the heaterblock from being cooled by your printfan.
Step1: Print the BudaShroud.dxf using inkscape or something similar onto ~225 to 280 gsm cardstock. The part should come out at 110mm plus a 5mm tab long and 20mm plus 10mm tabs high.
Step2: glue to create a cylinder, use a silicone based glue or something that will not burn in the case of getting too hot.
Step3: fold the tab oposite the join outwards
Step4: fold the two remaining tabs inwards.
Step5: unscrew hex screws from the wooden triangle on your budaschozzle.
Step6: place the shroud in position, and carefully punch a hole in the tab which is folded out to match the buda hex screw opposite the wires. Ensure that the shroud is not touching the heaterblock. (should be a couple of mm clearence)
Step7: screw the hex screw through the tab you just punched a hole in.
Step8: do the same for the two other inwards folded tabs, again ensure the shroud is not touching the heaterblock.
Step9: re-attach your budashnozzle and turn your fans up high without worrying about cooling down your budashnozzle!!!
