FAN SHROUD BL MK3S printable?

I got the blob on death and while trying to recover damaged the fan shroud on my mk3s.  Is the part printable?  I can't find other than for sale, so maybe not.

Sure. Check out https://www.prusaprinters.org/social/16-prusa-research/collections/54487 for your printer model.

Great, thank you.  Will the imported STL have the correct xyz dimensions?

Follow the print instructions from Prusa, the shroud should be printed in ASA. That said, mine is carbonfil Petg, been printing since The last upgrade of plastic parts.

Stay safe and healthy, Phil

When the stock one on mine started to sag after a long run of ABS prints, I replaced it with a remixed one printed in PC Blend.

That has not sagged since.

JSW: The stl at https://www.prusaprinters.org/prints/88272-i3-mk3s-printable-parts/files had support material that was difficult to remove.  In the image you posted there does not seem to be any support material.  Did you get the model from another source?

pcweber: "Follow the print instructions from Prusa"  Where are these located? 

Sorry, first time down this road.

RE:

That was a remixed one.

I'm sure it came from the Prints section, but let me hunt on the drive and see if I can find it for you.

I know I printed the original and the remixed one before I tore the machine down to replace it, and chose the better one in real time, which was obviously the remixed one.

The photo below looks like it was taken on July 19 2020, so that should give me something to go on to search.

RE:

Found it.

Here you go.  Enjoy. 🙂

I did mine in PC Blend, but it should be reasonably sturdy in ABS or ASA.

Update: I did a search and here is the original thread from 2020 where I was asking questions about this remixed shroud:

And here is my 'report' on my first use of PC Blend for making this:

Although it's been awhile since I had to replace my shroud, I have one on-hand just in case. The shroud from the mk3s+ is great! 

Stay safe and healthy, Phil
