"I have downloaded but the merged print set ups are not there file names but 0 size."

I'm not sure what you mean. Everything in the download is working for me, try re-downloading.

There are several things that could improved. Feel free to make the changes, unfortunately I have other projects I'm working on and don't have time put any more work into this one.

I have downloaded but the merged print set ups are not there file names but 0 size.
Also I like the design but think that a filet on the edges instead of a chamfer would print better. I have sketchup but do not use it so will need to play with it to change .

nice work, so plug side soldered OK, but socket side needs to be re-done, thanks again...

Instructions

All the individual STL Files can be found in the .zip file.
*Please note, the enclosure requires (2x) Part #4. Print 2 of these.
*All parts have their number stamped into the inside corner/face so you don't loose track of what's what.
*Use your favorite Filament Spool Holder and Filament Clip, But note that the OEM one will not work.
*Be cautious during prints. The sharp edges have a tendency to lift/warp out of their support material until 4 or 5 layers are printed on top of them. Orient them to print best on your setup.

Parts Needed:
*You will need 10 M3x10mm Screws. (possibly a few longer ones as well, depending on your filament and spool holders)
*.093" Acrylic or Polycarbonate Sheet, commonly available at Home Depot.

Assembly:
*Print All Parts
*Cut out the windows to the correct size shown in the pictures. The measurements are exact size, I reccomend you minus ~1 or 2 mm to give yourself some clearance.
*Screw 1, 1B, 2B, 6, and 6B onto printer.
*Dry fit all other pieces together on the printer with the windows in place before gluing anything together.
*Glue!
*Take Pictures and Post!

Thanks to gillespinault for creating the laser cut window files.

Ummm, my heated bed carped out. The connector burned out to be more precise, during an overnight print. This printer doesn't get a break thats for sure. It shouldn't be from the enclosed space since the Afinia guys put the shipping box over the printer to protect against drafts.

DytHlt on Mar 31, 2013 said:

Mine did the same thing, twice, before I had the enclosure. I have found that the soldering jobs on that connector inside the platform arm to be very very poor. If your good at soldering, I recommend removing both cables, and re-soldering the connector. If your not comfortable with that, I would not recommend it, since if you accidentally switch one of the heater wires with the sensor wire, you will likely destroy your motherboard and cpu. (which replacements are ridiculously over priced)

It works like a charm I must say. Thank you again

DytHlt on Mar 29, 2013 said:

Glad to hear it.

DanLuc on Mar 28, 2013 said:

I finally got it all done and printed. Mind you I'm on my 3rd extruder assembly.
I started going nuts with the glue and now the front top panel is a tricky thing to place so I left it on top.
Can you post a pic of the thing opened to get an idea of which panels move how?
Either way great product, Afinia and Up need to offer this as an option or have it on their spares list.
Thank a bunch once more.

DytHlt on Mar 28, 2013 said:

I'm jealous, I still don't have mine done since my printer broke 1/2 through this project and has been at the supplier being repaired. I should be getting it back this friday though, YAY!
Since I don't have mine, I took a picture in sketchup showing the hinge actuated. (Obviously, you don't want to glue the pin)

DanLuc on Mar 13, 2013 said:

Any chance that part 4 can be made in 2 parts or have them together but not intertwined? I can print those edges to save my life, so I need to get the flat part on the table at any cost. Let me know if you help in that regard pls. Thanks.

PS: Printing the parts one at a time with fine setting and 50 degrees is working great. As long as the space heater is blowing warm air on the build platform that is.

DytHlt on Mar 13, 2013 said:

If you have sketchup, you can download the .skp and pull out the single #4 part, otherwise i can do it when i get home and upload it for you.

DanLuc on Feb 27, 2013 said:

From what I can see this works for the Afinia printer as well. And i have been trying to print this for some time now without any success. The problem i'm getting is with the sharp edge parts which either printer in mid air and fail or dont stick and fail. I have a heater to avoid warping and cracking which works really well but still no luck on this print.

Any chance you can post the support setup parameters you have? I'll give it one last try that way.
Thanks in advance.

There is no difference between the Afinia and the Up! except for branding.

DytHlt on Feb 27, 2013 said:

Using OEM filament, I set my support angle to 50 degrees, and quality=fine.

Download the Up_Plus_Enclosure_Parts.zip. Then, try printing one piece at a time, rather than one of the multi part prints, and rotate it so a flat part is touching the platform.

Hi DytHlt and thanks for the amazing work!

I am printing all the parts and being an Up! newbie I have to admit I have quite a lot of misprint, mainly due to wraping (which I guess/hope your enclose will solve!).

1. Could you share some advices on the settings you are using (Layer thickness, support, speed, special tricks, ...).

2. I am currently using ABS, is it what you are using as well or would you advise PLA instead?

DytHlt on Jan 13, 2013 said:

I am using ABS from PP3DP, 0.2mm Layer thickness, Fine Speed, 50 degree support, Second to the smallest infill.
If your having issues with warping, I recommend printing off all the parts one piece at a time, rather than the 4 condensed prints I made. Whenever you can, make the part stand up tall. Also, do what you can to keep the build area warm, some people have just put a box over the printer to keep the heat in.

Once your enclosure is done, warping issues should not be a problem. I had most of the prints done, and was able to put the enclosure mostly together with some tape (temporarily) and the few large pieces I had left did not warp at all once I did this.

DytHlt on Jan 6, 2013 said:

*UPDATE* I have found the top row of brackets were getting hit by the
build platform when printing objects that utilize the entire build
platform (front to back). Made the top row of parts taller to fix this.
If you have allready printed off the entire set of brackets, all you
need to print off for this fix is part numbers 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8,
and Pin. (or just the 2 updated prints) All Files have been updated
with the new parts.

*Be cautious during prints number 1 and 2. The sharp edges have a tendency to lift/warp out of their support material until 4 or 5 layers are printed on top of them.

DytHlt on Jan 1, 2013 said:

If your print platform is thin enough, I recommend printing the Alternate versions of 1 and 2, so that the tall pieces are standing up, rather than laying down. I was having some serious issues with warping with them laying down.

Wow!! The plating of all the parts is genius and super thoughtful m8!! Thanks a ton for your hard work and sharing!!

Do I really have to go install sketchup to figure out how big the windows are? :-)

DytHlt on Dec 31, 2012 said:

No... Look at the pictures.

DytHlt on Dec 29, 2012 said:

The Completed Sketchup file is uploaded if anybody wants to start printing, I imagine its going to take a while. ;)
I will upload .STLs tomorrow.

I'm working on organizing all of the pieces to fit as many on a single print as possible, and also orient them to reduce as much side to side movement as possible, to reduce wobble on the tall parts.

DytHlt on Dec 24, 2012 said:

Just keep in mind, its not done yet, so all the pieces aren't in the skp.
