Prometheus V2 adjustable layer fans?

Post by d1rron » Thu Jul 21, 2016 6:40 am

So I've now got two Prometheus V2 hot ends with two different nozzles so that I can easily swap between them on my Metal Max. I installed my 0.4mm hotend earlier in place of the 0.6mm, and the 3 layer fans sit lower than the 0.4mm nozzle :? (the 0.4mm configuration has a smaller melt zone and the nozzle sits a bit higher). I'm trying to figure out an easy solution for also swapping between layer fan heights. Is there an adjustable fan mount or something out there?

I'm also using a 713maker hotend mount.

If it helps, here is an album that shows everything in case I didn't clearly describe my platform/hotend/mount situation. http://imgur.com/a/qw1Jn

Dude, you have a 3D printer. Design and make one. That's the fun part of 3D printers.

I've considered that and that might be what I do, but I'm still learning to use Solidworks and I've got a full Summer semester course load so I was just asking in case there was already a solution, like perhaps an STL. If I do end up creating my own solution, which is probably what will end up happening, I'll be sure to post it here in case anyone else needs it.
