Geeetech Prusa i3 pro c dual extruder question

Post by rmrodrigues » Thu Oct 15, 2015 6:05 am

Hi there,
I've bought a Geeetech Pro C and I've a doubt related with the extruder.
Why this dual extruder has only one fan and any cooler?
Usually, each extruder has a cooler + fan.
Do you advise change that and add a cooler + fan for each extruder?
Best,

hi,this is to save space .one fan can cool the 2 extruder at the same time.

Hi Eric,
Thank you for the reply. I'm asking that because usually the cooler and the fan are placed on the front side of the extruder, as it was made on model B, I think.
Thanks.

Hi,
I confirm, it's ok for that.
But it miss a fan to cool the plastic when it goes out.
It buit it and pieces are better. But i didn't find a good model on thingiverse, I think I can improve my installation.
