Yet another fan mount.
Not ideal but it will do for now.
There is a little bit too much twist but close enough.
I expect to switch over to dual fan or fan with duct.
It's here if you want it.
I only used this a short time then designed this...


3D printed.
Was indented to be mounted by using a longer screw on the extruder mount but I've found it works OK held on by rubber band.
V1 has a clearance problem if you use my z-poker.
V2 to just clears the V1 poker (see image) but would need some work to clear the glue-on V2-poker.
You can tap the fan screw hole to M3 or drill out and use a nut.
Note the faces of V2 almost touch and it prints with the hole there - it is still quite strong - it is not a bug it is a feature.

Laser Cutter.

I havn't designed it yet.

I love the simple side mount, I will modify this to fit a solid state laser next to the head, which also needs a fan.. it might need strapping to the other side.

What's the laser for? Levelling?
