Have you always wanted your own personalized desk fan?

I'm sure you have, and today you can learn how,...with resources listed!

3-D printing has never kept you so cool!

Step 1: Print the Fan!

If you already have a 3D printer, or have access to one,...or want to pay someone like shapeways.com, then start by going to the following link: http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:970875

Here you will find the file for this fan. You can adjust the total size of the print to better match your motor.

Here is the motor I am using: http://www.amazon.com/Tamiya-76005-Solar-Motor-02/...

Step 2: How to Power

You can see I also wrapped the motor with a cloth to prevent any vibrating.

I soldered the motor wires to a mini-usb female piece.

Like below a Qi charging fob is then plugged into the mini-usb.

I wanted to utilize Inductive Charging for this project, what is that? ?

You can find out more or purchase the inductive units at: http://www.qinside.us/

Well here is a small video:

Step 3: Personalize

Lastly I went onto my AutoDesk Inventor and created my personalized name plate.

Simply measure the opening where the motor was placed, create a circle and add text!
