80mm Fan Frame-mount for Reprap printers
by mrice, published
This is a mounting kit I made to attach an 80mm fan on the side of my Prusa printer for cooling.
The kit has three parts: A frame rod clip, a slotted arm, and a fan frame. It has multiple axis of tilt to adjust for wherever you place it. You will need a couple 10mm M3 screws and nuts to assemble it, plus the appropriate screws (M3 or 4-40) for your fan. There is a small integrated clip to secure the fan wires to the slotted frame to keep things tidy.
The frame clip piece is designed with M8 threaded rod in mind. You can clamp it securely to the bar using the provided holes in the side of the clip, although I have found it to be very secure without any extra help.
The parts have a printed volume of 15.56 cubic centimeters, and require a build volume of 81x81.5x12.7mm.
