Jet Engine Desk Fan
Prototype desk fan with a design based on a jet engine. Please note, the STL files are not stored on Youmagine because they won't let me upload files bigger than 1Mb so they're on a Google Drive folder, see links below.For your home

I printed this prototype version on my mini Kossell: warning it's a bit too big to print properly on a 170mm diameter bed and I had to remove the z-probe retract tower to avoid a clash with the hot end.
The print is currently under re-design, up-to-date & incomplete files are available on my Github (https://github.com/pittance/compressorFan)
Prototype files on Google drive (https://drive.google.com/folderview?id=0B4LxDtVkGmNkfkhlNWJrSV9uNlFKUERhTEdBLXkzM0NiQW14MHEzWjJ4dm96...) because Youmagine won't let me upload anything bigger than 1Mb.
Desk fan similar to the one I bought as a motor donor http://www.argos.co.uk/static/Product/partNumber/4251800.htm
All built in OpenSCAD with Inkscape
Materials and methods
- All files stored on Google drive, see link in description
- Needs a desk fan or other source for a shaded-pole induction motor - I bought the cheapest one I could find, possibly working model in description
- Mounting is with an assortment of M3 socket cap screws (from 6mm to 25mm)
- Ream all holes to 3mm (for pass through) or 2.5mm for grip to allow self-tapping
