I created this Electronics enclosure for my Anet A8. I have setup Octoprint on a Raspberry PI to run the prints and an Relay system (that is triggered off the Raspberry Pi to switch on and off the Power and also the LED Strip. I also included an mount for a Pi Camera to web stream / time-lapse your prints.
I made the decision not to include an extra cooling fan on the case as I have never had a problem with over heating and there is so much passive cooling from the honeycomb design. Having said that It would not be a big challenge to add one in a future update.
