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. In scad file set <b>explode</b> to 0 to see it together. <b>railT</b> to change the thickness of the rails <b>pcbT</b> to change the slot size for the PCB <b>wT</b> to change the wall thickness <b>fin</b> to change the size of the lid print support fins

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
