Raise3D Fan Duct Pro2 Plus

Postby Billucas » Fri Mar 30, 2018 1:15 am

Hi Vicky,

Please, is it possible to get a STL of the new Raise3D Fan Duct Pro2 Plus? As shown on picture?
I would like to print one for my N2 Plus, if it fits. I guess other Raisers would be interested too.

Thanks,

Luc

my next design was going that direction with forward cold end cooling. I don't think that exact design will be compatible with the older printers though.

I've always kind of seen it as an issue to blow the air in from the sides as it creates a wall of force in the model and now the heat just sits there.

my plan is to put twin smaller fans in the front to cover the cold end and then adapt my filament duct to the side.

While the design is for the E3D adapter, it should be able to be applied to the standard V2 hotends.

Raise3D still needs a sock, not sure why they have not done that yet.

Doesn't anyone search Thingiverse or google? A very similar fan bracket mod can be found at https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2792586, or for just under $10.00, I found a nice design (closer to the Pro2) at https://cults3d.com/en/3d-model/tool/ra ... ed-cooling. For firesped, you can download a hot end sock mold at https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2132957. There are plenty of free or relatively inexpensive designs available for the N2, you just need to search and find the ones that best fit your needs.

Yes, we search on Thingiverse or Google, don't worry. Thank you for your suggestions. I have already seen them, except one I prefer from your suggestions: https://cults3d.com/en/3d-model/tool/ra ... ed-cooling.
I asked if Raise3d could give people their new fan duct, thinking about other guys who would like to get it.

A design for a fan duct made by an individual might not be as well designers as the one made by the manufacturer.
I wouldn’t modify my printer with something from thingiverse that might work. I would rather use one from Raise3D.

I think the issue here is, the Pro2 and it's moving nozzle slightly increases the total length from the mounting holes. So I'd love to be wrong, but my first thought is, even if you had the STL, it may or may not work with a non-pro system.

You aren't wrong for asking for it, but again, just doing a lot of looking at the pictures, I question how viable this is for the current series.
Now if you had the CAD source, that's a heck of a lot more desirable as one could easily edit and make a proper non-pro version. It's not that you cannot edit an STL, but having the original source is much more desirable.

If I have the STL file from the New Pro2 series, I could draw one for the N series, in SolidWorks.
After, I could share it to people. Because like you are saying, there will be some differences, for sure.

Thanks,
Luc

Thank you Vicky, I appreciate. So, like we thought, there is some changes between the N2-N2-Plus and the Pro2.
It will give me an idea how to mix the Fan Duct design, in order to retrofit our cooling system. I know that many people
have done this, but I will give a look.

With this new design how do you go about printing abs? No lid for the fan duct?

I think that the central fan is only for hot ends. The left and right side fans are control by Ideamaker.
Am I right?

On the “old” printers the left and right fans are always on. And the extra fan connection can be controlled via gcode.

But the new printers I don’t know.

I know. But you could put the left and right fans be controlled via gcode ( controller board there is 2 empty plugs) ,
and add a central 40mm fan constant on?

As Billucas said, yes, on the new Pro2 series, the two fans at left and right can be controlled by gcode. Only the center fan for nozzle cooling is constant-on.

Will the fan duct for the pro2 work with the N2 dual?
