Looking for an enclosure for a Wanhao Duplicator Plus, I came across many different designs utilizing the Ikea Lack table. My primary inspiration comes from Kirby Downey's design (https://www.myminifactory.com/object/ikea-lack-table-enclosure-adapter-26769), but there were several things his design lacked that I wanted in mine. His designs are beautiful but a bit difficult to edit, so I created mine from scratch. I disliked the asymmetrical design that put all the height in the feet, and figured that if I altered it to have matching pieces at the top and bottoms of the legs that it would give me a natural way to hold plexiglass sides.
Here are the goals I have with my design:
- symmetric design
- built-in wall holders
- mount on top of existing computer desk
- integrated hinges, door stops, mounting points
I created a few different designs and modified as I went. Thanks to many great designs I didn't have to start from scratch, specifically I have used or incorporated the following objects:
For the most part everything worked the first time. I will be uploading v2 designs that fix a few of the issues I ran into in assembly. The two basic changes are: 1) add mounting points to the inside of the corner bracket to securely attach to the table top and base; 2) add stops to the hinge bottoms to hold the door in place without screws.
The pin on my quick hinges proved too brittle and broke off of each hinge. I took a drill bit and drilled out the broken part and cleaned up the hole on the other part, then screwed a simple machine screw in each and it works perfectly.
