    So here is my enclosure build I was working on. 1/2" mdf construction, using router to make shoulders for see through plexiglass window, and well as the white plexiglass to illuminate the led color changing lighting.

    on laser cutter, cut out a gator skin texture on a stencil and airbrushed blue and red paint (what ever color i had lying around) for a bit of style. All plexiglass panels are removable to access components if necessary .

    Strong multi spool filament holder for extra options.
    laser cut lcd control board for the controls to relocate for easier access to the sd card slot.

    well here it is.

    Nice enclosure!

    Is the idea to get better temperature control for printing? If so, how it is working out?

  • yep that is right , better temperature control by preventing ambient cross air flow in the room.
    the box also provides a rigid floor base to keep it level, stronger rigid construction for the 1 kg spools of abs and pla, the original frame shakes and sways from left to right with the movement of the print head.

  • We might have to do something similar for our current 3D printer. Sweet detail on the enclosure by the way.
