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

    • Architect Design Contest | People
      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.
