OK, I'm new. I think I want to try one of the improved fan mounts people have made.

Does anybody have experience comparing them. A lot of them look similar. Is there one that stands out above the rest?

What material would you recommend making the fan mount out of? Is there a high temp filament?

I do not have the Olsson Hot End.

Hi,

what I can say now, after over nine month of usage, is that the Fan Base UM2 by Zetoff work very well and I'm very satisfied with the results :)

Adding, ad described, a little metal shield (... from a beer can :D ) , I don't have had any problem of deformation due to temperature of the hot-end :)

Certainly I recommend it!

Only one negative point ... to mount and dismount ... you have to remove the fans first ... :(

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
