I just printed it and is really good. However the walls on the main piece where the mount goes in are too thin and it immediately broke a bit when it hit the bed clips :( I suggest making the mount narrower and the walls thicker to be more robust.

Thanks for the design

It's the best for this kind of hot end. Look no further it is the best. Period.
Thanks Akos!

I wonder how you fix the blower fan: is it just snap fit into the inlet? Which fan have you used? It makes me uncomfortable to think the blower fan is just snap fit... I would have preferred to have a 90 degrees angle, so that gravity would have assisted more in keeping the blower fan in place...

Can you share an editable design format?

Yes it just snaps in. You can fix if you want with just a little tape. I could give you the editable file if you want to remix it. Just make sure to give appropriate credit and follow the license agreement. For the editable file just drop a PM on Facebook: https://m.facebook.com/akos.redangel

It's made a huge improvement to my prints. I was getting very bad stringing without a fan, and with the fan (and some advice on Slic3r settings from Akos on Facebook) the problem has been solved.

As usual, Akos has provided a quality design which has worked wonders with my i3 pro b.

Easy to fit and adjust. Yesterday i did my first lattice stress test and breezed through it (no pun intended).
The air flows sufficiently to the part and therefore cools it very well.

Many thanks again Akos,

Thanks for the kind comment. And for the shared tips. You are absolutely right with the 90°, and the 3-5mm

Excellent fan duct. Beautiful print as well. Make sure you turn your nozzle 90 degrees and that the block is right in the middle of the fan duct. Leave about 3 to 5 mm of nozzle beneath. And make sure the whole duct doesn't hit your clips on the bed before you test it out. Outstanding design....see pictures how it looks like...

Really nice Akos, can't wait to print and try out :-)
