A 3D-printed part to mount a 30mm fan in front of the Y-Axis Motor of a tinyboy fabricator.
It has a strong fit on the slanted side of the extrude head carrier.
Maintained at http://github.com/fablabnbg/tinyboy mechanics/Y-Motor-Cooler.*
Lay flat on the long right hand side.
The snap fit sits quite strong on the 3mm acrylic wall;
While the snap fit works well with PLA, I recommend to use ABS or another material that has better long term stability when exposed to heat. The first model I built from PLA warped over time and let the fan hanging downward by ca. 4mm after 1 month of frequent printing.
Use two small 2mm screws to secure a 30x30 mm Minifan.
Place the hook over the side wall of the gantry, so that the fan is perfectly vertical and directly infront of the Y-motor.
How I Designed This
It took a while of adding and removing and padding and cutting, until it fits.
