3D model description

Let's keep it cool!

My take on a better cooler for the CR-10 Tronxy X1/3 type hotend. The stock CR-10 set up can cool the heater block too much if you don't have it wrapped. The parts doesn't cool all sides well. My Tronxy X3 didn't have a parts cooler and the heater block couldn't get temps over 205C.

I tried a couple other popular coolers but did not fit my original parts blower or just not that efficient.

So the Mittens Cooler evolved. Printed in PETG, it weighs 12 grams. Has a bit fo a twist for a little vortex of air.

Needs a few things: a 5015 blower/fan, a few screws, a bit of rewiring, and a bit of tenacity.

Reportedly works with the Tevo Tornado ( now.

WARNING: It works for me. Your results may vary wildly.

I've gone through dozens and dozens of printed revisions to get to this version.

If you find this useful and want to encourage my insanity, buy a cup of coffee for me, a bag of coffee, or you pick the value. Thanks!

Please note, this is not compatible with the auto-leveling sensor. Send me one and I'll try to make one fit.
