Introduction: Cheap AC-cooler 3D-printed
As the summer is here the heat is also here! So i thought for myself, lets build a cheap and an exclusive AC-cooler, this is the cheap one I will publish the exclusive one next week.
Step 1: Bill of Tools and Materials
12V DC-adapter - https://goo.gl/U3vJH3
DC jack - https://goo.gl/h7RRRo
or you can use this one, both fits
Fan controller - https://goo.gl/24qXXK
Fan 120 mm - https://goo.gl/annsV0
Magnets - https://goo.gl/rHznO5
Step 2: 3D-print
print all the needed parts, use support for the body, 2 outer perimeters is good enough with 15-20% infill.
Step 3: Wire the Parts
just make sure you have the right polarity, + and -.
Step 4: Assambley
Fasten the fan-contoller.
Step 5: Cable Management
Glue the cables and the Dc-jack to the body.
Step 6: Assambley
Glue the fan (make sure that the flow-direction is blowing the air "through the tunnel")
Step 7: This Is How It Should Look
if everything is done right. just put the grill at the front, you can glue magnets to make sure it stays in place.
Step 8: Insert Ice - Chillout!
Either you can use ice pack or you can print the icebox, but if you are printing the icebox, make sure it don´t leaks, i used ABS with vapor-smoothing to make sure it was watertight., you can also print it in PLA or other material and use epoxy for coating.
Enjoy your AC-cooler!
