Borg fan box for Ultimaker by variador Mar 17, 2013


Different way to mount the fan for the Ultimaker. Guaranteed air flow from fan. There is the plain Jane model and the one some of you will be more familiar with. Can it get easier to print?

I could be honest and tell you all that I broke the fan housing that comes with the Ultimaker because I couldn't figure it out. Instead, I'll go with the idea that the fan wasn't able to move much air in that tight housing. There are comments elsewhere that support this claim. :-) My fan has always hung on the back of the extruder. I started to think that maybe cooling the plastic is more important than I thought after looking at all the other fan housings that have been made. With this simple piece, all the air form the fan is now hitting the newly extruded plastic. The airflow can be controlled somewhat by the height of the walls. If nothing else it might make you laugh! Stay cool Update; When I saw the picture of the plain jane model it said "Make it so".
