This mounts under the laser-cut parts on a Printrbot (I'm using it on a Simple) to hold a 40mm fan. The bottom has two hex indentations sized for the 6-32 nuts that attach to the two 6-32 screws used to mount the extruder.


Use the existing 6-32 screws and nuts to mount this under the extruder. There is a curved opening so you can slip it over the hot end. Use two M3 20 screws and nuts to hold the 40mm in place.

Please note: 40mm refers to the width of the whole fan, NOT the mounting hole distance. Otherwise: Great part. Using a remix of it which fits my fan.

Have printed this out recently. Very nice, fits 40mm fan from Maplin(UK) perfectly. Only snag, on my simple the existing extruder mounting bolts aren't log enough to fit this in. Will need to get longer bolts. Otherwise fantastic!
