Printable 2-part RAMPS 1.4 case with a slot for a centrifugal fan.
Currently this fits the fan I prised out of my dead Dell D830 laptop, but will make the slot parametric
Print and use. Probably best in ABS. Just about prints on my Mendel without the E-motor hitting the bars.
Optionally screw the two parts together with M3 bolts, but it should slide in tightly anyway.
Designed and arranged for easy printing.

That fan's about 6 bucks from eBay but seems to have some reasonable puff. If anyone has another cheap off-the-shelf suggestion I'll post up the STL for that too. The fan is open both sides, and the recent photo shows a TEC and heatsink topside, which now blows chilled air into the box and gives real kick-ass cooling whilst sucking up some amperage from 5v line of the ATX PSU.
The HP Pavilion DV7 AB7805HX-EB1 looks cheaper, but idk the aperture dimensions
ramps2.stl has feet and cutaway on top right rail for near-the-side board connectors
