Doing a mod to the controller box of my Monoprice Maker Select V2 to add a larger fan and I needed a grill for the fan. This is exactly what I needed. Printed with Monoprice PETG at 245/80, .2 layers, 40% infill for strength, at 45mm/sec speed.

thanks :-) many people seem to like this one. I'd have never put money on it being so popular.

I tried to slice this in S3D 100% infill and 3 outer layers but the honeycomb mesh was way to brittle and shattered upon releasing from my build plate.

By chance were you using a translucent color PLA?
What material is your bed plate? is it heated?

Headed bed (Aluminum w/ BuildTac) @ 60, using White PLA from a local shop. haven't had issues with other prints so far.

It is great model. But very hard for printing :) With Cura I print this grill around of 3 hours. Too many "dry" movements, I think it is problem with slicer. Anybody can help to improve slicer configuration for equal models?

I dont know, I use slic3r.

ok, if you dont want to officially SAY you printed one, maybe just add a commet 'printed' or something?
80 dosnloads and 9 printed???? mmmmm....

Just wanted to say thanks for this it works great. I have one on my printrbot 80mm fan and one on a lawnmowing robot (sabertooth controller cooling). Thanks!

We also now provide a less popular 60mm fan grill!

When this is scaled to 60mm it didn't fit on my 60mm fan. The holes were misaligned at that size.

Please see thing # 2202469
Happy makes!

I applegize, as the previous comment stated, yes, scaling this grill dosn't work
HOWEVER I have a 60mm version I will post right now JUST FOR YOU :)
Please sit by...

Thank you! I really like the honeycomb look over the other options.

but if you scale this down to for example 50% (40mm fan) the mounting holes will be too small?!

My plan would have worked perfectly if it weren't for you meddling kids
