Summary

Add some windows to your Replicator to help with cooling and drafts.

Instructions

Print off hinges and clips (I use 6 hinges and 4 clips, 2 clips and hinges for front and 2 hinges and 1 clip for each side, see photos)
Cut out 3mm acrylic to shape. (It would be great if someone could attach a lasercut window thing to this)
Each clip and hinge needs a small cutout from the window for it to fit snugly.
Hinges are designed around 3mm steel bar (M3 bolts would also work).
Install and you are done.
I have included the .dwg file for anyone that wants to change it.

edit: Drandolph has made a cut file for the windows; http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:30894.

What level of infill would you recommend?

sheesh, it's been 2 years. I think because they are small and structural, I just used 100%. You'd probably be able to get away with less though.

Did you use adhesive to hold the hinges in place, either to the wood or plexiglass, or is the fit good enough?

Hmmmm... Very interesting. Might give this a whirl.

Update: Currently Whirling!
