CAUTION!!! At 5 minutes from the end of the print I notice from the comments that it is not compatible with the 2018 A10! I lost 4h of time and all the filament! Update the project data for correctness !!!

Yeah, like everyone else is commenting, it doesn't seem to fit later A10's. Geeetech keep revising the whole machine but not giving it new revision numbers. Its a lovely design too so many thanks for Gunzo for uploading it.

Thanks Ant7t5. A tactful comment without laughable accusations. I've changed the description to something more meaningful. "Latest A10 version" or " old A10 version" wont work, tomorrow they might release a new version. "2018 Version" is also off as mine was released in 2018... go figure.

You should add in the summary that this design does not correspond to the last A10 version, you wasted my time and filament, it does not fit the existing holes and if you try to use only one, but it hits either the knots or the bearings of the bed. DO NOT USE IT FOR A 2018 A10!!

A downscale to 91.7% should work but the fan will not be aligned with the circular output

do not fit on 2018 model

Mine is also a 2018 model...

The file still works with the current control board housing, you just have to cut a bit off the right end with a scissors and drill a hole. That's what I did anyway.

Unfortunately Geeetech has changed the control board housing, so your fan guard doesn't fit on the newer models. The right screw is touching the Y-frame and the distance between screws is now 9.6mm instead of 10.4 in your model. I will try to make a modification as soon as I come up with a solution.
cheers

Let me know if I can help you. I don't have the original parametric file anymore. I do have the step files for the fan covers.
Is the relation to the fan cover still the same to the left screw hole?

nothing is the same :-/ I even found out now that the bed seems to be lower. somehow the distance between levelling knob and controller box lid is just 12mm. so I'm considering to just build a simple "roof" on top of the fan outlet which is open to all 4 sides. the other option is guiding the fan duct to the left and maybe place a larger silent fan (noctua 60mm) outside, next to the left foot profile (could be an overkill tho. haha).

Thank you for the file :-). I printed it to scale, and it is slightly to big, and also the bed's wheels and adjustment knob catches it

I'm sorry to hear that. It work perfectly for me, I don't know why it differs on your side. I also have lots of clearance. Let me know if I can help you sort it out.

Regards
