Thanks for your design. Bridning is perfect with this. Do you have for 40mm extruder fan? my chinese chimera clone uses 40mm and i want to use your design. Thanks..

works perfectly, thanks

Why you named it "nozzle cooler"? It should cool down the print, not the nozzle, and it this design I'm affraid it's cooling the nozzle :(

I am confused by this. Does that fan shroud blow air onto the nozzle? The design seems to be pointing downward at the tip of the shroud. Am I missing something?

Would REALLY appreciate the working files please and thanks

this design blocks the air intake for the cooling fan on the hot end, which causes the cold end of the chimera to overheat, and the extruder to get jammed, in my experience.

I am just looking at this design although, I have not made it. I see what you mean by the intake of the fan on the cool zone of the chimera being partially blocked with the screw holes of the fan shroud. Would that have an effect on the ability of this fan to cool?

I think having the duct in front of the cold end fan reduces the cold end cfms, because the fan can only pull air from the side.

That's odd. There isn't anything in front of the cold end fan. Strange.
