Thanks, used this to fit the back "vent" holes in my computer desk. The dual xeon's constantly pump heat out, which gets trapped thus making them warmer. 2 of these in the holes with 80mm fans extracting is enough to keep it cooler. Cheers mate.

How does this mount on the replicator? Is it supposed to vent to the outside, or just ciruclate and clean the air inside the build area?

I originally intended on building a box around the Replicator and using this to vent, but I got sidetracked with work, I might adapt it to one of the boxes here on Thingiverse.

Won't that introduce a lot of drafting in the build area?

I was new to 3D printing at the time and didn't think about drafts, I thought it would smell worse than it does, I print with no sides on it in the corner of my livingroom, (wife not too happy with that LOL), and don't have too much trouble with it.

it was more of a first project exercise than anything

PS - I do industrial prototyping on my Replicator and unfortunately cannot post what I make due to legalities.

Really love this; looks very sturdy and well-designed. I have on occasion wanted to create a fan mount for ducting in PC chassis; this looks like a great starting point for me. Thanks for sharing it!

Thanks! I will be posting more pics when I am done.
