Summary

A link to these files can be found on my Thingiverse and GrabCAD pages.

I designed this assembly in Autodesk Fusion 360 and used a STEP file of the Titan Aero Extruder assembly to design around with dimensions measured from the CR-10S extruder carriage for hole placement.

The reason the mount is broken into 3 components is because I wanted there to be flexibility in swapping parts (such as the fan duct) easily without needing to disassemble any of the Titan extruder assembly. So if the fan duct or mounting bracket for the fan isn't suitable, then it may be redesigned with a little more flexibility without needing to re-design all of the components separately.

This mount includes 3 separate components and require some specific constraints when printing as explained below:

Extruder, Plate, Rear
-> Needs to be placed vertically with EZABL hole on build plate
-> No raft needed
-> Supports are optional, but not needed even for the motor mount hole. Some post finishing may be needed depending on specific print settings

Mount, Fan, Duct
-> Highly suggested to place vertically on build plate
-> No raft needed
-> Supports needed for overhang extruded holes

Fan, Blower, Duct
-> Should be placed flush on build plate
-> No raft needed
-> Don't use supports inside the duct area because they are impossible to remove all of the way. Only need support in the slot at the front of the duct where the blower fan will go

My S3D settings are as follows:

Material -> Tianse Blue PLA 1.75 mm

Nozzle Dia. -> 0.40 mm
Extrusion Multiplier -> 0.95
Extrusion Width -> 0.35 mm

Primary Layer Height -> 0.2500 mm
Top/Bottom Solid Layers -> 3
Outline Shells -> 2
Infill -> 10%

Temp (Extruder/Bed) -> 210C/50C

Fan Speed -> 100% after 1st layer

Printing Speed -> 60 mm/s
