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 ... :(

      The goal of this contest is to design a set of people figurines that could be used in such a project to make an area, office or mall seem populated. 
      Think of different types of people in different environments, like walking people, people standing still, working people, and both men and women.

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
