Air Conditioning Vents

Just 3D printed some mounting collars for a set of 6” spot diffusers I came across.

So happy with the installation.

They work great.

I might do a small production run if enough people are interested in picking up a set.

Would need to do the numbers, but if anyone is interested then please reply to the post.

I will look into making them if I can get interest from 10 or more members.

Those are very cool. They are just what I need. Count me in. I have had trouble keeping the Airstream vents in the ceiling.

Install is fairly straightforward. The collar mounts to the ceiling with 3 stainless metal screws or 3m UHB tape.

Once it is in place the diffuser attaches to the collar with 3 stainless screws that tap into tapered holes built into the collar.

I will get some additional images up as soon as I get a chance.

As for cost, it will depend on the quantity that I am able to produce. More units will bring the price down–each vent assembly will probably come in around 250 with all mounting hardware and collar.

The aluminum spot diffuser itself is a much more expensive part than the stamped vents our trailers came with, so this is going to be the most expensive thing.

I will check with my source on bulk pricing once we have enough people who are interested.

Here’s an update:

My source in Asia has discounted producing this diffuser.

However, I just spoke with another factory that can produce a comparable part.

The representative is sending me a sample part that should arrive in two weeks.

Once it arrives I will build the adapter collar in SolidWorks and prototype it. If all goes well then I’ll have pictures for you guys in a few weeks time.

In the meantime, please spread the word as I can only source these at a reasonable price if we get enough members who want to get their hands on a set.

The JQJ6 looks comparable as well as a bit less expensive then what you are quoting and is already available. ???
