Resin Printed Fan Shroud for MK3S+

I just woke up to a filament monster around my printhead that broke my fan shroud. I don't have a spare shroud, but I do have a resin printer. Is it ok to print that part out of resin with it being so close to the nozzle? I'm not sure if there is any off-gassing I should be worried about. 

Best Answer by JoanTabb:

If you have petg filament, you could pint a fan shroud out of that, without a fanshroiud...

I have printed rsin fanshrouds out of prusa tough orange resin, it worked ok, but didn'y last long!

Ok, thank you. For future reference, what happened to your fan shroud? Was it the heat?

the fanshroud delaminated and the bottom detatched... probably the heat!

RE:

I basically copy Joan's post 😉
If the only thing missing is your fan shroud. I would just print a new one on the Prusa, without the shroud. Just print in PETG, ABS, ASA, PC-Blend or the like and do so super slow (and with 0% part cooling).

I personally can really recommend PC-Blend, if you have an enclosure. Otherwise I would go for something like TitanX, an ABS+ which prints ok and warp free even without enclosure and simply can withstand more heat than PETG. PETG is good enough for a replacement too, it just might not hold up as long at very high temperatures as the mentioned alternatives.
