I'm hoping this one will work https://amzn.com/B000051299

Could you please provide the step or other source files so I can more easily adapt if needed?

STEP files available.
Don't know how your particular CAD software will interpret them though,



Sorry this model wasn't modeled using CAD software at all so the files here are the only files available :-(

Since the fan you mentioned is very similar to the one i'm using I might be able to help if there are smaller differences.

I'll see if I can CAD it and re-up as STP, but it will take a while since I don't have much time at the moment :-) I do wan't to make slight changes to it anyways so I might as well redo it in CAD...

This is really a great solution. Way to go!

I think it's only like my 5th try now... :-)
Started out trying to create a few different front fan ducts, but eventually gave in to the logic showed by others here at thingi... to go for a rear duct at the back of the bearing blocks instead. Makes the feeder / extruder more accessible...

Do you have a link to the exact fan you used? I need a 24VDC for my Geeetech M201 which I'm going to try to adapt your part to. Thanks for the work :)

Added some measurements to one of the preview images. Any fan used shouldn't reach up higher than approx <60mm from the rim of the fan holder opening since it will then collide with the X-axis cable chain...

Shouldn't be a problem creating an adaptor that tilts a large blowerfan backwards to clear the cable chain, but, i suspect you're probably mostly reusing measurements to create your own take on this solution... =) sometimes the only way...

PS Please download the files again because I had a mismatch with the fan duct and the adaptors. Should be fixed now.

Sorry about that...

The fan I moddeled the duct around, because of its perfect slim size, is a part of a salvaged PC chassi pci-slot cooler. Might not conform to normal standard fan style measurements. Any measurements given on the web might also be including the pci bracket.

Actually found it on a shop when searching now:

And a similar one from Titan:

I should probably check exact measurements and write them down in the description. Will do that later... thanks for reminding me =)

Glad you like the solution, hope you can get/model the fanduct to fit your purpose... :-)
