3dp17 replacement fan shroud

Post by gloomyandy » January 29th, 2018, 2:18 pm

Does anyone have a recommendation for a replacement fan shroud for the 3dp17 printer? There seem to be endless ones on various sites, but I'm not sur how well they will match the hotend and extruder setup on my printer. I seem to get a fair bit of air "escaping" from where the stock shroud butts up against the fan, so ideally a replacement will be of the type that has a lip that fits inside the fan exhaust opening. But any recommendation will be of interest, I'd be interested to hear why you chose it, how well it has worked etc. Thanks!
