This additional part really makes that fan duct work! On the Ultimaker I was upgrading, the fan duct was a touch too close to the heat block to start with. This part made everything fit perfectly.

Works great, haven't had the duct actually warp into the spacer yet. Secured with a piece of double sided tape on the groove as it shook loose after a while.

If necessary, I can make one for you with a slightly more narrow groove..

No worries, actually getting an E3D hot end pretty soon. Thanks for the offer though!

Ok then ;)

What is the fuzz about these E3D hot ends?
Is it the thing that its all metal or?

That is a big one, so you can get high temp without worying about the PEEK/PTFE in the Ulti hot end. Also, it is actively cooled and keeps the filament very straight until right before it is extruded. Seems like a very nice hot end to try out!

Have you tested out the E3D hot end?
And how did you manage to mount it onto the printer?

Aahh okay I see.. Please keep us updated with your experience with it..
