Description

This is a 40mm Fan Mount for Solidoodle 2. Printable with no overhangs >45 degrees. Features a small air-dam to prevent excessive cooling of the extruder. Might be pointless.

Edit: Just added "no dam" version

Rotation X:180.003, Rotation Z:90 and translation Z:18.29. Forgot to type the Z rotation, edited it, and thingiverse never updated?

Once you actually get it straightened out for Slicing, it is the easiest to slap on your extruder. Hats off to you! For anyone willing to print this, you will need to rotate the object. Rotation -X:180.003 and translation -Z:18.29. You are welcome.

Just noticed this here and was wondering if having a fan has improved your print quality. I've been thinking about adding one to my solidoodle but don't want to put out the effort if it's not going to help.

Instructions

Print with the face the fan bolts to on the build surface. You may need a fan to build correctly, ha, catch-22 there. Then just add a standard 40mm fan and bolt with an M3 directly to mount. Press fit to plywood SD extruder base.

Works remarkably well with just a hint of warping due to asymmetrical cooling.
