Hi, there is a two mil gap between fan and guard.
Feel free to change it how you like.
Thank you.
bye for now and be well  :)  :]

I like the decorative fan guards, but I've found that they restrict airflow and they can be noisy.
Have you considered building them to stand off of the fan a bit to allow airflow in from between the guard and the fan inlet?

Yeah i was very tight with the air intakes on that first one,,as mentioned its been widened a smidgen.

Yeah the logo and overall look is ok,,those grills ,,,either grates that are evenly spaced right accross so it don't clash with the top and bottom of the M ,,,,,,or grills that tapper off at the top and bottom so as to give the elusion of a curve which would make the M pop perhaps mores so but either design is cool.

I've tryed to go for the tapper off grills,,,they are almost right.
Some were didn't fill ,,,i do wonder about makeing them all not fill. hum.
Thank you.
Bye for now and be well  :)  :]

Too much restriction of air flow for my liking.

(I like the idea of a logo on the grill, but I recommend exploring opening it up a bit)
