    Is there anything in the works for a better designed fan shroud for the Hot End? I feel one side of my prints come out really good and the opposite side (furthest from the fan) has all sorts of minor problems.

    I have the BB1.1. I feel like the air should blow straight across the the current layer being laid down, but it seems like the air goes straight down one side of the part. I could post a pic of a benchy later to illustrate the issues I'm having.

    It most certainly does, if you search for @Alex9779 's finite element analysis for the fan flows it basically bounces off the part and down onto the bed...

    Where is this analysis? I searched for finite element and came up nothing ;)
