This hotend cover is based on the following design: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2706092
However, I redesigned the hotend cover quite a bit. Most important features of the cover:
- Lightweight: reduces ghosting and costs less filament to print
- Is compatible with both the stock parts cooling fan and heatsink fan
- Can be mounted with four M3 nuts and M3 bolts, a link for which can be found below
- It is much easier to reach the hotend distribution PCB
I suggest printing this part at 100% infill and with tree supports.
Depending on the accuracy of your printer, it might be necessary to sand/file
some parts of the hotend cover, in order to make it fit perfectly.

I like to design all kinds of products that are simple, practical and aesthetically pleasing. Every design is made using SolidWorks. Renders and animations are made using KeyShot, with some renders being edited in Adobe Photoshop too. My preferred slicing software is PrusaSlicer.
If you have anything special you'd like me to design, let me know!
