This is very interesting. Would you agree to share the file(s)?

looks awesome, I've been hunting around for a better cooling solution, as prints on the 2.0 with detailed tall parts tend to be melty on the far side away from the fan.

Sorry for asking again but would you agree to share the file(s)?
I really would like to mod mine too.
I already bought the blowers.

The makerbot replicator 2 has these kind of blowers and the cooling is indeed better.

Mayhem, does this help with the Make Shootout bridging test?

I'd be curious to see if having a better blower makes a difference. Think you could print it and share the results?

Also, could you share the specific brand of blower you got, perhaps with a link? Would it work with a dual extruder setup? How does the weight compare to the standard fan/shroud combo?
