Fan Shroud E3D Volcano

Postby tamueic » Fri Mar 24, 2017 11:02 am

I recently switched over to an E3D Volcano setup on my gMax1.5xt+, but I don't have a fan shroud for it...

I started modelling a simple shroud in solidworks but I figured it couldn't hurt to ask here and see if anyone happens to have a shroud to fit the volcano that they wouldn't mind sharing.

Thanks!

I created a adjustable fan shroud but I have not published it yet. I was planning on perfecting it first but what the hell. Let me know what the problems are. :lol:

I used M3 screws and nuts to get it all together.

I forgot to say you have to rotate the blower 114 degrees to print it. I used supports sparingly on the inside.

Thanks!

I hacked together a solution that's similar, dropping the fan down and moving the shroud to match, but this is much more elegant.

I'm mounting my volcano next week, got an STL file from gCreate for a fan shroud as well as BLTouch probe extended mount.

We have now added the .stl files for fan shroud and BLTouch bracket to the downloads section.

I've used it for a few weeks now and it works great!

I just got a volcano and its up and running but I"m a bit nervous because the fan Shroud I printed from gcreate touches the heater block I'm a afraid the thing is going to melt. Do you all think I will be fine as long as the fan is on all the time or if a redesign is in order? Also maybe E3D changed the shape and size of it at some point maybe?
