This is my way to add a fan to the Carriage of the Mendel90. The Hotend from hotends.com which work perfectly can use a fan for better printing. As the new MKV-B is shorter i had problems directing the flow correctly to the upper part of the PEEK, without adding much more parts to the carriage.

At the moment its made for the sturdy version of the Mendel90 of Nophead http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:17826. 10mm smooth rods 60mm apart.
If needed i could make the other files accesseble and/or deliver one for the 8mm smooth rod version


I printed this in Black PLA and works perfectly, the upper part of the hotend stays cool to the touch. i would prefere to print this in ABS as it could get warm and warp but to this point i had no problems with it.
This is ready from the T2.5 timing belt but there should be no problems connecting a T5 or other to it. The other parts to strap the timing belt can be used from the original files from Nophead.

i use the fan from a Asus mobo fan but wich can be purchased at the ASUS site but probably you can get somewhere else

The lit is to prevent the hot air from the hotbed to get to the fan thus ensuring colder air from the to of the carriage and to conduct the airflow.

Hi I'm sorry i dont have the original file anymore. I think its not easaly adjustable for 12mm because of the size of the lmuu12. then you would need to re design the X carriage. As you can see on the small rondings in the cooler housing it barely fits with the 10lmuu.
youre free to use the design offcourse

Hi. Can you share the original model or make one for 12 mm rods?
