X-Grip Conveyor cooling fan mount

European X-Grip distributors Mikimodel have introduced the Conveyor cooling fan mount. The 3-D-printed part is made of carbon reinforced material and it weighs in at only 5g, hardly changing the overall weight balance of the chassis. A trick clip takes the fan’s JST connector for a more tidy look and the mount’s design will reduce the operation temperatures of the motor by about ten degrees. The mount is usable with most motor cooling fans.
