    Here is an update alternate V6 Bowden tool shroud. The fan mount tabs are beefed up and the hole is undersized allowing you to drill it to size. This is the toolhead: https://a360.co/3bImTlu

    Looks really good.
    Fan shroud is something that I'm really not happy about in the current iteration.
    I'll try this when I receive my replacement fans.

    Thanks

    Hey, I missed seeing this, but I did receive my new cooling fans, and noticed the fitment problem.
    I just modified the original E3D STL file in OpenScad to fix the problem.

    I already used your great design on my tool changer, but i edited the mounting points to close the gap between the fan and the holder.

    I also edited the fan shrowd to be used on a volcano hotend.
