Nope - but it's not that hard to design such an easy model ;-)
Did you ever make a mount for the PrintrBot LC?
This might mount well on the official fan mount upgrade too.

Instructions

print without support material - the wall width is 2mm (2,5mm at the PrintrBot Version) so you don't have to worry about holes

print the base as it is mounted on your printer - not as shown in the preview of Thingiverse!

you'll need: 5 hinges 1 base 1 nozzle fan 1 fan 60mm 4 screws to mount the fan or you'll use double faced tape 3 M3 screws 20mm or longer 3 shims and nuts

Using slic3r and a standard 60x60mm fan I can run up to 70% power without letting the temperature of the nozzle (ABS; 243°C) and the bed (glass; 95°C) drop.

The newer version with the smaller opening fits nicely on my PrintrBot LC ( with wooden extruder and a Ubis hot-end for 3mm). I intend to make a mount specifically for the PrintrBot extruder-- I'll post when I get it done.

Thanks for making the modified version!
