I have uploaded a version to accommodate the stock PB fan. It should clear the LC extruder plate now. I do not have a stock fan at the moment so if anyone prints this let me know how it works.

This is designed to print all one piece.

I've found that I need a fan on my PEEK for ABS and the fan on the print with PLA. This is designed to swivel when needed.

This fits a generic 40mm fan from Radio Shack. Unfortunately you have to modify your LC extruder mounting plate so it can swivel.

I have added a top plate to clear the larger 40x10mm fan.

It's been a long time since I made this I would have to find the native files. You might be able to separate them in slic3r or simplify3d if you've got it

hi, did you have the separated stl files for the rotating mount design? I tried to print it but I broke it twice tried to break it apart, thanks.
