Remix of E3Dv6 Shroud and 40 mm Duct w/ Magnetic Coupler for 6x3mm Magnets
Well maybe a rethink rather than a remix.
After some tightness and adjusting the sizes of the original files I soon discovered that you needed the holes to be tight but not too tight for the magnets and after a few iteration and glues I thought I had it and one magnet pulled out... so decided to rethink the idea and make it "user friendly".
Magnets slot in from the rear now and I just used a little hot glue to make sure they didn't come out.
I designed a low profile 40 to30mm fan duct.
Ok after some concerns over my idea of having about 1mm of separation between the magnets I had a little look... I just put 2 5x2mm magnets in each hole instead of one and it is pretty secure now... i thought before it was nicely held but this is now pretty sturdy.
I am not sure of or if there are any problems with doubling up magnets... I have ordered some 5x5mm N52 magnets which are the most powerful... see how that holds.
5x2 magnets x4 (x8 if you double them up)
m3 x 8mm caphead bolts x2 (you can use 4)
2x 40mm fans
8x 2mm zip ties
Note: This is only for a Genuine E3Dv6 hotend
