Made to work with the new jhead Mk 5 (which is shorter than previous versions for more print height)and richraps quick fit carriage which left little room to cool the print and the extruder.
Without taking up x print area.

Using Hcross's mount idea this is what I came up with.

Also added a small mount area for a strip of LCDs.

Works well so far.

Not the pretiest but solved my problem.

Added some support structure for an upward print.


Pint & drill holes for fan mounts.
Add 3 lcd's of a 12v light strip.

Find illumnination & chill out.

This is genius and I'm going to try printing it tonight. The quick-fit carriage and a J-head really do limit cooling options. This has a certain futuristic beauty, although it does seem to be lacking holes for m3 screws through the body of the fan..?
