after slipping and jamming my Hex key into my Makerbot replicator 2's fan and that I'm to impatient to wait for the fan to stop. I decided, I needed a new fan guard.


Download Stl files and print out at:
0.27mm Layer height
100% infill

1) Find an old wire fan guard, I got mine off a old graphics card (Leadtek WinFast A310)
2) Cut it up with a pair of tin snips till it fits in the top piece.
3) Glue the bottom piece on.
4) install on the Makerbot .

if the fan is lose you my have to use the shims, as the bolts are a little long with out the metal guard on.
