I'd been keeping three 3D printers busy nearly 24/7 for a while and aside from the noise, it didn't bother me. But when a significant other moved into the house she noticed right away: the smell of plastic permeated everything, and the long term effects of breathing in plastic fumes is unknown.
The answer was easy: build an enclosure and filter out the fumes, but if I was going to build three, its easy to build a few extra. So I bought a few extra sheets of acrylic and wood and the designs are available to cut more if anyone wants them.
I realize there are lots of DIY enclosure projects out there, and people build their own all of the time. Almost all of the designs here are available on Thingiverse, so if you like the design and want to build it yourself, go right ahead.
But for those of you who would rather be 3D printing than figuring out how to make a DIY enclosure out of Ikea parts, these 3d printer enclosures and accessories are beautiful, furniture grade, easy-to-assemble 3D printer enclosures and accessories.
