For anybody using the simple fan bracket and is having issues fitting this fan bracket and the included switch PCB I have modified the STL file to accommodate for the switch PCB. While the airflow it not ideal, I was able to keep the CM3 under 60°C while running N64 Golden Eye so for me its adequate.

File below:
Modified GBZ fan bracket V5.stl

(Obviously this is not my own creation so all credit goes to derebbe for original design)
Not sure what happened, but when I throw this thing into the slicer, its 10 times bigger than it should be.

Ah I forgot to mention that when I used fusion 360 to transform the original STL to an editable model, it increased the size tenfold. scaling the object by 10% will solve this problem.

I was able to figure out the scale by putting the older version in the slice and scaled down till it matched.

I will adjust my design tonight and publish a new STL wich has no issue with scaling :)

Did I miss the updated stl file for the simple fan mount?

You can find it in the first post... later I was talking about a version of the simple fan mount, which has a slightly different positioning to avoid a collision with the power switch bracket. So far it was never tested, but if you wanna be the beta tester: https://www.dropbox.com/s/6ievpqos2j0t5 ... r.stl?dl=0 here you go ;)

Yes, that's what I was referring to. The modified one. Thanks for sharing. My local library has a 3D printer so I might try to get it printed up there.

Please let me know if it works, then I will link it in the first post :) Soonish I will have access to a CircruitSword again, then I can test it myself...

I’m in the same ore-order actually. Just trying to get everything ready before the circuit sword arrives

I'm impressed with all of you who are so prepared for it to arrive. I was in the first Circuit Sword preorder and have it here on my desk, but I'm still collecting a few more parts before I start my build :roll: Still really exited to get this done though :D
