This is the 3D printed parts to build a top enclosure for an Ultimaker 2.
It's designed to be easily removable from the printer for the maintenance's operations.
It improve the conditions for printing ABS and prevent from warping. We measured temperatures in the enclosure and we could record about 75-80°C (170°F) max when the heat-bed is about 100-110°C (210-230°F).
You can found the front door enclosure there : http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1276732
Don't forget to correctly oriented the part before printing them. All part have to be printed one time except the "Corner3SidesX5" that have to be printed 5 times.
Printed with Colorfab XT.
ABS with more infill might be OK too.
You can drill another time the M4 holes so that the assembly would be easier.
- 30X FHC M4*20mm
- 30X M4 nuts
Poly-carbonate (5mm thick) :
- 1X 316*200mm ---> Back side
- 1X 326*200mm ---> Front side
- 2X 440*200mm ---> Left and Right sides
- 1X 445*326mm ---> Top side
- 1X 210*97mm ---> Back down side
Be careful : remove the protection plastics on the poly-carbonate plates AFTER drilling all the holes !
Put 3D part in place on the poly-carbonates plates and drill the M4 holes in the poly-carbonate.
When all holes drilled and protections removed, you can assembly all parts together. Be careful to not tightening too much FHC screws, it could brake your 3D printed parts.
Well... it's done !
Admire the success transformation ! ;)
