The Great Search: 24V Quiet Hot End Fan (3D Printer Replacement) #TheGreatSearch #DigiKey #3Dprinting @DigiKey
We got a request on Discord from someone with a 3D printer that needed new fans. In particular they want a quieter fan, and one that can run directly on 24V without needing a regulator (e.g. a 12V fan).
Let’s visit (video) the massive collection of fans over on Digi-Key and show how we can pare down the selection, then sort by specifications to get some great options to try.
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
