Extrusion head assembly fan questions

Recommended Posts

Wait? The fan cable is suppose to go trough a hole?

I have mine just "flying". Look at this photo at the top:

No problems with it so far.

For the fan shroud, if tape doesn't work. Try to see if you can place the fan on the bed so it blows over the print, with that you could be able to print a fan shroud. The stock fan shroud disassembled itself during my 3th print. I'm not sure why they aren't doing something about it. Must be the most replaced part of the whole machine.

Just take the pins out of the connector and push the wires through. Then reconnect after you get them where you need them (take a picture to make sure you have the right order).

Doing this made getting stuff through the wire looms (kite fabric) a million times easier. Just push on the end of the wire from the side with a pin and pull it out of the connector

    • "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.
