Fan Shroud for budda by CivilEITprint Apr 6, 2013

Description

This shroud sends most of its flow down to the model and a little at the heat sink. Specially designed for the budda nozzle. Made to fit on my X carriage posted to this site.

Thanks. The end caps really help eliminate support material on the inside and the vents eliminate hot end cooling. Check out my later generation http://www.thingiverse.com/thi...

Nice adaptation.

There are two Shrouds here. I noticed that my machine could maintain 180C for PLA no mater what. But the 230C for ABS was difficult with to much air flow. The second shroud (the one with the vent flares and heat sink channel) sends no flow to the heater. So even with ABS prints at 230C and fan at 100%, my machine can maintain temperature.

Instructions

Print the shroud and 2 caps in ABS. PLA has to low of a melting point to be so close to the hot end.
This may fit another x carriage mount. The bracket has a clear spacing of 7.5 mm. I recommend using my X-carriage (Because it is awesome),
