I printed a different fan shroud and am much happier with the backs of prints now.
I also adjusted my PLA to a bit lower temp of 206, which helps with bridges and overhangs.
The shroud should be in ABS, PETG will droop after a while.I assume i have to print the shroud in petg (which i do not have at the moment).
Joerg, sure, I can try the bulb base and post a pic.joerg.e wrote: ↑May 18, 2018 2:04 pm
I am not sure, if its cooling problem or not. Are you able to check and print that bulb base with your printer?
My temp for PLA is already 205 for the second layer and above.

Did you compared your mentioned shroud to that one? -> https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2740613
That would be good to see someone other printing that. Thanks in advance.ray.a2 wrote: ↑May 18, 2018 2:57 pmJoerg, sure, I can try the bulb base and post a pic.
I did not try the JLTX shroud, no. The one I posted was a direct fit in place of the stock prusa.
As gert.l mentioned, you should print it in ABS as PET will melt after a bit or with longer run prints. Definitely do not use PLA.
If you are having issues with printing ABS, then you could print a throwaway in PET to test and see if your print is any better.
