Slender layer fan for 2.4



on-printer image


For the Mosquito hotend, this mod shortens the Afterburner tool head by 10mm along Y. It reduces weight at the maximum lever point on the tool head and gives an open duct so you can service the interior in case of a dropped screw or similar.

You will switch to a smaller layer fan for weight and size benefits, at the cost of maximum air throughput. For ABS, ASA, Nylon and other low-fan materials this is often sufficient but you may struggle with PLA.

There is an option for a prettier 40x10 (the one from 2.2) and a lighter, more utilitarian 50x10 which is better on all counts except cosmetically.



File Note
duct.stl You might need supports. I used supporrt from platform only to keep the inside of the duct clean.
hotend_fan_cover.stl You might need supports. I used supports on the duct seal wings to keep them a little nice.
v_5010_case.stl For ugly 50x10 style. Replaces blower_case.stl.
v_5010_lid.stl For ugly 50x10 style. Replaces blower_lid.stl.

  2. Put in the heat set inserts. 2 on top of blower_lid, 2 in the duct and the 2 on the backside of the duct for bolting the hotend case together. (5010 does not have heat set inserts on the
