can this be scaled up so it fits a 80mm fan?

Yes, you can. Scaling it up by 200% will make it 80mm but the holes with change too, from 3mm to 6mm.

I don't know if that's going to work for you.

I love this fan guard, but is there any chance you could make a version of this design for 30 mm?

I could but you could print it by scaling it down to .75%. Taking it down to 30mm instead of 40mm.
If that doesn't work for you, let me know and I'll scale it down for you.

I thought that would make the screw holes too small and the spiral segments supporting the OSHW logo and outer ring too thin. I'll give it a try, though. Is that how you made the other sizes?

No, I designed them as I needed them. Next time I'll have to design all the different sizes at once.
