Hey, I finished fixing it up post processing. Its a pretty nifty shroud. I was wondering if it is safe to attach 2 fans, both rated as max DC24V, min DC12V, and .06A? They would be in series, unless parallel is better. I'm new to the whole electrical stuff and ordered some fans without realizing I could damage them or the board.

Never mind, I think I figured it out. I need to hook up parallel fans and they need to 12v rated nominal. 24 volt wont do. Amps dont seem to matter but less "seems" safer because it puts less load on the motors. IDK, I was garbage at my electronics class in high school. I will solder JST connectors for them. I will report back if I explode.

I tried to print this. It is still printing as of this comment. Maybe I have a defective heat plate, but everything I print in ABS on the R1 warps like I yelled at it so much that it tried to curl into the fetal position. I put towels on the printer with only the top allowing airflow. Its always the back left corner that it warps. If the final result is not salvageable I going to buy myself some more PETG and quit ABS for good. Or.... I could ditch Pla and ABS for just PETG, no need for cooling fan mounts or hotplates then... thermal dynamics hates me.

The original design was intended for ABS as it was more common and easier to get but now times have changed and there are more readily available options, you could do it in PETG and it will hold up. As a side note the original robo sucks at ABS printing.

Thank you for the fast response. I didnt know I would even get one. The print came put better than I thought. I didnt know that the original Robo sucked so much for ABS. Thank you for letting me know. If I cant get the internal supports out without fubaring the print I think I may end up slicing the print into seperate pieces and remix your work. Supposedly gorrila glue will withstand heat so from now on its pla and pet for me. Its a nice design by the way, the only one i could find that had dual large fans. When I get it all sorted out, my pla should be bridge worthy and retain detail.

Could you tell me what fans do you recommend? or better yet send me a link to what you are using? I am printing these right now and I would like to use some of the fans you recommend for this. Are there any fans that already might come linked and with the plug in for the robo r1 plus? maybe I'm asking for too much lol

have you considered attaching the heat sync cooling fan to this and having them all on one unit?

i just printed out a couple of other fan mounts, and now ill be using 3 different mounts, it would be awesome if this one could be adapted to do that.

think you could make that?

what would you recommend for support settings?

Does this clear the top of the robo3d case so no height is lost?

With 40x40x10 mm fans it does, with 40x40x20 mm it doesn't. However any time I want to print higher than 150 mm I remove the top case no big deal.

Does this only work if you have an E3D?

You may be able to adapt it for other hot ends, however it was designed specifically for the E3D V6 hottend
