I reckon my fan guard design is pretty damn neat. (Free Plans)



I needed some fan guards for my arcade machine and for a neat little entertainment centre hack.

Playing around I made a fish-eye honey-comb screen that looked pretty good. The pattern has larger holes near the centre of the fan and smaller holes where it counts.


How to make your own (with plans):

Making this is pretty easy if you have a laser cutter. If you don’t grab the .dxf  file and head of to your local laser/acrylic cutting business or makerspace.


The .dxf file is downloadable here.
A printable .png (good for the template) is downloadable here.

Q: I’m too lazy, can you sell me one?

Not any more (sorry).
