Inspired by AntonioJose81 fan legs, but completely redesigned. Non-supported legs are approx 10mm smaller in height.

Designed for:

  • M5 screws, knipping, flat head (10 mm, 100 deg), screw length 20-30mm
  • Fan size 120x25 mm

I used them with Spire Orion fan (SP12025S1L3).
Legs will fit on fans, where distance from screw holes towards the edge of the fan is up to 8 mm.

What to print: You can print two pairs of normal A and B legs. If your fabrikator is more back heavy than normal (for instance, If you have filament spool suspended in the back), you can print one of each provide files (A, B, A_supported, B_supported).
Supported legs are optional. Normal legs don't decrease stability on It's own.

Fan electrical connection (Mini Fabrikator 1.5):
You can connect the fan parallel to the hot end's cooling fan (on same board connector), so It starts up only when you're printing.

Great design. I have made a set and unloaded some pictures.

Have you done anything to try and keep the Y axis motor cool as mine gets really hot? I was thinking of cutting a hole under the motor and using some of the air flow to try and cool it.

Not yet, but I'm thinking about doing smth along this lines.

I did however change some settings in startup g-code. I changed it so that extruder air is blowing away from the stepper, while it's heating up. I've also did smth similar after print finishes. I'm also trying to position my prints as far away as possible from the motor and rotate them so that motor does less work.

Length of the bolt? Interesting design!

Recommended: 20 mm
