Fan Guard and Shroud for Replicator Dual-Extruder
by lili_czarina, published
Clive the Makerbot wanted to grow a mustache, but I wanted him to have a fan shroud. We compromised by using Tinkercad and NetFabb to mash together CrazyJaw's Fan Guards with ColinBB's Dual Extruder Fan Shroud. Then Clive straight up printed himself CrazyJaw's MonseÃ±or Replicator Mustache.
Clive looks quite dapper and his air is headed in the right direction.
This mod slides right onto the Makerbot Replicator Dual Extruding beauty. I printed it with .2 on ABS. Then you'll want your bot to print itself a mustache that fits into the screw holes. I used MonseÃ±or Replicator's Mustache http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:34423.
I had an issue with the switch, which you may or may not have. I'm copying the following instructions from ColinBB's instructions. I cut a little slice to make it work.
"You may, I have not, run into a problem with the X-Endstop switch not engaging due to the extra thickness of the print. If this does occur, there are a couple things you can do. One, is to alter the thickness of the right wall. The second, is to pull the switch toward the center of the machine by a few millimeters. This should be done with a light hand."
