A mount for a 6mm fan attached to a 3" duct.


To prvide ehaust for any encased 3D printer.

Parts required:

6mm 12v cooling fan
3" Ducting
4x 3'4" machine screws
4x 2" machine screws
4 6-32 washers.
8 6-32 nuts


Print both parts.

place 6mm fan into _bottom and drill holes.

Use machine screws to attach the fan.
Add a washer below the fan to prevent scraping(if necessary).
Align, drill holes and attach the top with machine screws.

I covered the connecting surfaces with duct tape to seal any leaks.

I'd like to make this more powerful. Maybe a 120mm fan.
