Noticed that the original hypercube fan shroud only blew air on one side of my prints, so all my PLA prints had one side that would droop and look rough. This fan helps to accelerate the flow of air from the blower fan and directs it all around the part. So far with this fan I've had no problems with printing PLA and getting great overhangs/surface finish.

Took me about 10 design iterations to get this right and make it fit with the original induction probe that the Hypercube was designed for. Make sure to print it in a high temperature resistant material like PETG or ABS. I printed mine in PETG and it hasn't warped at all from heat coming from the hotend.


P.S. the STL file isn't oriented correctly, print it vertically like I show in the picture from S3D

I think you posted a message on my make saying the duct could be better.
I think that maybe the air flow is directed too much downward and not enough to the tip of the extruder.
What do you think?

Hi! Don't you get any trouble when printing without supports?

nope, didn't get any problems. But if you are I don't see why you cant put some supports. I designed it to make it easy to print.

I tried to print it today and it did get well without support :)
Unfortunately the orientation of my extruder doesn't fit with your design :(

How do you have your hotend placed? I did design it specifically with the way mine is oriented, but it shouldn't be hard to rotate the hotend.

It has a 90° angle compared to yours.
It isn't hard to rotate it indeed, but it then hits my cutom fan holder ^^
But I think I will redesign it so I can use your cooling system as it has been a long time i wanted one like that.
