Studies have shown that a lot of air in a little spot is good for your 3d prints! I figure a blower fan will really jam some air in there, so why not give it a try?

This is sort of a remix, given that I made a new file from scratch, which was inspired by the original! I had a smaller blower fan (27mm x 20mm opening OD) that I’d scavenged from an old projector (they have so many fans in there!), so I needed a model with different opening dimensions.

I’ve created the file as a parametric Onshape template here, so that if I end up having to do this again I can simply adjust a couple of params + print again!

Every Thursday is #3dthursday here at Adafruit! The DIY 3D printing community has passion and dedication for making solid objects from digital models. Recently, we have noticed electronics projects integrated with 3D printed enclosures, brackets, and sculptures, so each Thursday we celebrate and highlight these bold pioneers!

Have you considered building a 3D project around an Arduino or other microcontroller? How about printing a bracket to mount your Raspberry Pi to the back of your HD monitor? And don’t forget the countless LED projects that are possible when you are modeling your projects in 3D!
