Prusa (lm8uu x-carriage) Clip-on Fan Mount by supereprapper Feb 16, 2013

Description

This is a fan mount for a centrifugal computer cooling fan that will clip right on the back of your prusa's x-carriage. The mount keeps the bearings secured in case you are like me and your clips lost their grip on the bearings due to vibration stresses.

Instructions

Print out fan mount. Find a 30mm thick fan(I found mine in an old dell desktop. It was used to cool the cpu.) Slide a 40mm m3 screw through the mounting holes, securing the fan to the mount. Now simply clip the assumbly onto the back of your x carriage, wire it up and you're GOLDEN.

FYI make sure the fan clearance is sufficient over the print bed. Mine has a good millimeter of clearance. Less may work as well
