What mounting hardware is required for this ? Want to make sure I have all the stuff to fit tonight ! Thanks for the mount !

Hi ;)

Very nice stl, thanks for that
What type of Noctua 60mm 5V should i take ? The one with 3 pins connector or the one with 4 pins PWM ?


Buy the 3 pin one, since the fan connector isn't PWM controlled anyways. Also note you won't be able to mount the 3 pin connector directly onto the break out board on top of the extruder, since they mechanically don't match up (Molex vs. JST). I used the extension cable that came with the Noctua fan and used that to solder it to the original fan connectors wires.

This was a very helpful comment. Thanks superhans.

How did my Cetus 3d print this with little support? I'm amazed at the spanning structures which are completely smooth yet no support.

Great job, printed quick and very well.

The parameters were spot on using PLA from Cetus.

Just hope this helps get the noise level down on the fan.

Hi Steamkraft,

very good work. Printing was easy, installation was easy. Works very fine...!

Thanks for your work.

Can you please advise which material is recommended for this part? ABS?

i use PLAtec from twoBEars - GreenTec from Extruder is also a good choice (both Materials can handel Temperatures up to 110°+ C)
i heard of some who used normal PLA and it works - but i would recommend a material witch can handel higher Temperatures.

Hi, I was just wondering if you performed the bridge test with the normal stock fan before making your upgrade? It'd be interesting to compare the two.

i just printed the test with the original fan - it wasent that good - first i was surprised - cause i feel more air coming out (the smal fan has a high presure - my Noctua 60mm has lower) but then - i printed again - and the problem was thes "more air" cause it presure the just printed path of filament a bit down - so maybe just a bit to mutch presure :)

Ah, that's great news. Thanks for doing that testing!
