This is a remix of the awesome Racush OEM Fang Mod for the Creality CR-10 & CR-10s
It gives great access and visibility of the print head while printing.
Uses all existing standard parts, no new parts needed.
The original the fangs are very close to the bed about 1mm, and in some print where I had curl on edges it was catching the printed part.
So this is a re-mesh
- Shortened the fangs by about 5mm height
- Re angles the jets to ensure the air just are exactly on the printed part nozzle end
- Made the aperture at the end for the nozzle smaller to direct the air jets more precisely

gcode for a CR-10 Printer in PLA 204deg nozzle and 60deg bed

NOTE: if you use the gcode, make sure there is no bed clips 7cm in both directions from the front left corner of the build plate.
You can print this without supports but it does come out a lot nicer with them.
All Tacblades designs are tested and printed before posting. All designs and created with 3d printing from the beginning so minimal support and angles designed to print easily.
Post Cleanup and Prep
I will need support removal,
and cleaning edges especially around the area where the part cooling fan attaches.
Also I have found it a lot easier to insert the screws dry on the bench to cut the threads before mounting the fan.
Be very careful on the part cooling fan screw holes, as too much pressure can split the support around the holes as its thin. I used a pair of grips to hold the part while gently threading the hole slowly, worked well.
