This is an adapter to use the DiiCooler from Pawpawpaw85 with the BQ prusa i3 Hephestos. The DiiCooler is (for me) one of the best ducts to direct the air from the blower: Thing:
The adapter is for the "DiiiCooler_Rev3-21" version.
It is designed to subtitute the black metalic plate that holds the blower. In order to mount it remove the black plate and use the same screws to fix the adapter to the extrusor. Everything is adjusted to the specificacions of the DiiCooler and the BLTouch sensor.
It includes two models, a simple one and another with a screw holes for a bltouch sensor.
Any. Printed at 0.3mm works great
I recommend to use only "touching buildplate" supports. The screw holes can be printed without supports.
Using the bluprints provided by the creator of DiiCooler I created the adapter using the FreeCAD. The source files are provided
Additional materals and notes
In order to fix the blower to the DiiCooler and the adapter to the DiiCooler, you need some screws as specified in:
- I had to bend slightly the hot end wires in order to properly fit the DiiCooler in the desired position.
- The adapter works perfectly well in PLA, but the DiiCooler needs to be ABS if not it will melt and flow and change form mid-print.
