just printed it as is and it's too low... can you post just the fan mount with the spacebar built in? :) thanks
Actually, I've found the little 40mm fans have no ability to push air through anything.Â They're designed for unrestricted air flow.Â So, I've found that using the fan mountedÂ with no cone at all works better than anything I could do with the cone.Â I'd suggest printing this, butÂ removing all of the cone part and just use it as a fan mount.

The cone also hangs too low for my makergear groovemount setup. It needs a spacer under the bracket to raise it about 3mm. The spacer bar is to lift it up that much. Stacks of 3mm washers could be used too (6 of them make 3mm). This does get in the way of removing the big gear on my Wade's extruder, too.
Print the spacer bar, and the fan mount. Replace the front screws of the supa flat carriage bearing retainer with longer ones. Mount the spacer bar, then the bracket with washers and nuts on the longer screws (3mm x 25mm).
VERIFY before using it that the fan cone is higher than your extruder tip, or it will collide with your prints.
