Fan grill (Customizer) by mbasov Apr 10, 2013


This thing inspired by 120mm Fan grill - RepRap style by capitaenz.
I made it a symmetric and customizable.

Customizable parameters are:

  • External dimension and mounting holes distance.
  • Mounting holes shape and size (cylindrical or for conic head screw)
  • Number of "rings" in grill.
  • Wide of "rings" and rods.
  • Shape of "rings" (true ring or tear drop).
  • "Rings" smooth or segmented.
  • Central "ring" solid or has hole.

All .stl examples are for 120 mm fan.

To avoid unwanted gaps inside grill rings and rods I use 2.13 mm wide for it and the following parameters for Slic3r:

  • Hozzle diameter: 0.3mm
  • Layer height: 0.2 mm
  • First layer height: 0.3 mm
  • Perimeters: 2
  • Fill density: 0.8
