Taz 6 e3d conversion and fan ducts.

Post by CJay » Thu Nov 03, 2016 8:45 pm

Hey guys,

Thought I'd share this since it was a massive pain right at first. So I've done the conversion to the e3d v6 full kit and things are now running beautifully. My z issues have all disappeared and getting much nicer finish on my printed parts. However one thing I have always disliked about the Taz 6 is the tiny low output cooling fans used. Long story short the fans are axial and as a result not efficient at all at blowing air through a small aperture. This was abundantly clear on each I switched to the e3d in addition to the cooling fans also blowing cold air on the heater block which sits a tad lower which is pretty much a bad thing for maintaining even heat throughout the print. So here's the stl for improved cooling system I'm running. The fans I'm using can be found here for dirt cheap...

And the stl files and pictures of the installed ducts can be found here

The removed screws from the original fan duct system can be used to mount the new fans.

Are the part cooling fans on the Taz 24 volts or 5 volts like the hotend heatsink fan? I have an E3D V6 hotend coming today and will be doing the conversion as well.

I have a few of the 5015 fans in 24volt style sitting around since I needed one for my Ender-3 printer so if the Taz 6 uses 24volt fans there I may do a similar conversion.
