double fan

Recommended Posts

I had an extra connector in my junk drawer that I soldered on. I pulled out the pins of the original connector and then soldered the leads from my new connector to those before pushing them back in.

Not sure what you mean with the second question? No modifications should be needed for the fan.

    It is because I only have the connector selling wise the basic ultimaker, so I have to create a derivation to connect the two fan in the same plug. that is why i am wondering if i have to buy two fan witch need lees energies but I think that two fan of 12V 0,10 Am in derivation will plug white-out problem of energies ...

    you need two normal fans, exavtly like the one that comes with the ultimaker.

    then elt off a little of the plastic around the existing power fan cables, soldier on the new fan cables, tidy it all up and.... your in business.

    here is my design.


    its working well on both my ultimakers.

    I am getting this back, I am looking for good double fan duct for the original machine.

    I printed IRobert design from youmagine and then realized that its for smaller fans, which double fan do you recommend guys?

    I have two fans from the exact same since as the original one.(50mm in the outside, 40mm between holes (Which I think It was broken because it made some noise at the beginning)

    fan two fans
