I needed to practice with Autodesk Inventor, so I designed this. It uses a 90mm (120mm diagonal from screw hole to screw hole) (25mm thick) fan. I used a 11.5 x 19mm switch. For the power connector, I just cut the barrel jack off a cord I didn’t need. The filter is a 10mm thick carbon filter.

In this model I have added some features to the front to hold the bottom of the filter in place. They should print okay, but I have tested it. For the first one I did, I just used hot glue. I had issues with the fan screw holes lining up, and had to drill them out some. I believe I have now fixed that in this model.

Every Thursday is #3dthursday here at Adafruit! The DIY 3D printing community has passion and dedication for making solid objects from digital models. Recently, we have noticed electronics projects integrated with 3D printed enclosures, brackets, and sculptures, so each Thursday we celebrate and highlight these bold pioneers!

Have you considered building a 3D project around an Arduino or other microcontroller? How about printing a bracket to mount your Raspberry Pi to the back of your HD monitor? And don’t forget the countless LED projects that are possible when you are modeling your projects in 3D!
