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.
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
