This fits much better than the fan duct which came with the fan (which even fell off once and ruined the print). It also looks better.

However, it seems to blow at the top of the nozzle instead of the end, and the duct even touches a part of the hot end. This makes me kind of worried that it will melt.

Haven't tried printing with it yet but will update if it melts.

EDIT: It melted a bit. I fixed it by cutting off a bit of the end so it no longer touches the hot end. Otherwise it works great.

Hey what am I doing wrong when the duct doesn't sit centered?

he has his extruder block turned 90 degrees. As do I. This is something that he should have specified. So while it will fit if your block is turned, I realized after printing this,like the poster above that it directs air at the block and not the end of the nozzle. I would skip this print.
