Parts fan for RigidBot

The days are getting shorter and rainier so time to dust of the 3D printer. (RigidBot)
Today I finally reinstalled the parts fan to improve the print quality.

A nice design by Walter

This design has been replaced by an original design by me

The first test run was a succes, still have to do some tests to see if enough air is passing trough the aquarium air tube. I have the older E3D mount by Walter so I had to do some hacking to make everything fit. Maybe I will reprint the whole thing in Nylon later, but it works for now.

I have got myself some specialty filament to play around with later on this week.
