It is a fan nozzle for cooling the filaments that are emitted from the hot end.

※:This is used to print together used to wear a mounter to fix the "x-carriage".

I've used Slic3r(0.9.8) when printing.

nozzle_diameter = 0.35
fill_density = 0.35
layer_height = 0.2
perimeters = 2
support_material_threshold = 2
support_material_pattern = rectilinear
support_material_spacing = 1.25

This seems to improve precision but I am not sure that it is better than https://github.com/EmmanuelG/Foldarap/blob/master/other%20versions/1.1%20melzi/active-cooling-plug_40mm-fan.stlhttps://github.com/EmmanuelG/F... , I believe the outlet holes are too small and it maks only a little bit of air to get out of it...

I would like to know if it helps to improve print precision ?

Hello, garenc.

It helps to improve the quality and if done the appropriate settings when printing small parts.

Thank you.

Thanks ! I was trying to do something like that, this one will help me :)

Hi, I've finished for now. It might change a little, Please refer.(^^)/
