Not sure, been 2+ years since I posted this part. Our go to fan duct is thingiverse.com/download:402280. It is for a MM15+ with a J-Head.
I'd like to try this with a J-head and a standard mendelmax 1.5 x-carriage. Do you know if this design clears, or did you happen to tweak the design for vastempty? Thanks!

I had ABS lifting issues with a non directed fan.
This design helped.

10/14/12 - added v2.1 with beefed up hinge mount.
Do you see print quality improvement with this over a bear fan?

Brad, again using one of your designs, works great with thingiverse.com/thing:29753 and a BudaSchnozzle, but with a jhead; the fan duct bumps into the mount, so it can not fold up high enough for the lower clearance of a jhead.
Glad you are trying my designs. I would like to tweek the design so it works for you. I PMed you with my contact info.
