After getting some comments about the back lacking air vent for the airflow I've now redesigned the back so it has a hole for the air to pass through.
I read an article where they stated that blowing air over a wide area delivers prints with less warping than shrouds that concentrate the air. I've seen this type of "wing fan system" on another printer using another hotend so I thought I'd make one for the E3D V6. I haven't had time to test it fully but from what I've managed to test, it seems to perform really good this far. It uses 3x 40mm fans attached to the magnetic X-carriage designed by me. It's on a Tevo Tarantula but could probably be mounted on any printer with an E3D V6 hotend.

As always I'd love to get some feedback so please comment if you have time!
