This is exactly what I was looking for! Thank you very much!

Awesome design, it works perfectly. Keep up the terrific work!


Can you PLEASE do this for 40mm fans all around? This is the design i've been wanting but I'm no good at modeling in any 3d software and this would suit my needs perfectly.

I remixed it for 40mm fans


Piggyback layercooling fanduct for e3d-v6 hotend 40mm

it's interesting to me the 40 mm version

I would also like to jump on the 40mm request train. trustfm design won't work for me because I need to mount to the hotend fan. I was also happy to see that you supplied the stp files. :) Thank you for sharing your work.

I have done this design http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1337200
I am using 40 mm dual fans
Let me know if this worked

Ok maybe if i'm in the mood sometime in the next weeks. But may I ask why 40mm fans? They are just bigger and the airflow coming from the 30mm fans is already too high at 100%.

I would really love a version for 40mm too. I do not find 30mm fan flow too high and also like the quieter solution of the 40mm + it's almost impossible to find good 24v 30mm fans :)

40mm fans are quieter than 30mm fans. and I have multitudes of 40mm from other projects.


Me Too. Please !!! :-)

Can you help with an extended version? I use a volcano nozzle, which is located 8mm lower than the normal one. Would it be possible to get the source files as well?

Hi, i added a zip folder with the source files. But this was a quick and dirty design so the source files are a little messy, sorry ;-)

what e3d mount is that you use ?

Okay, thanks.

can i ask why you cut of the bottom part, and not used it as it is ?

For aesthetic reasons and i think also because of not wanting to hit the back of the printer with a fan or move the y-endstop, I needed the layer cooling fans to be aligned along the x-axis and not the y-axis. Unfortunately, the way the mount is designed you cannot choose the hotend's orientation.
