Tronxy X5S – Modifying the Hotend!

Please visit for more information on this and many other projects! As in this episode, we will be modifying the cooling fan for the hotend of the Tronxy-X5S large scale printer from Gearbest. As one of the things which I noticed is that metal fan shroud had to be removed (major pain) every time the nozzle needed to be unplugged and two it also forces air onto the heater block cooling it too. So off to thing verse we went and found this design (listed below) for the Tronxy-X3 which has the same hotend so we printed it ABS and it fit! So check it it out!
