NOTE: Tripax has started to make this, he has shared his work with me so i will add his photos to my images. (thankyou tripax)
Check what he has made in the link below!
NOTE: I have found this link and code for anyone that has not yet bought a CR_10.
I believe this is the cheapest price you will ever find for this awesome printer.
This is my CR-10 enclosure system.
its modular so super easy to print without support to assemble.
I have added also the same design leg support system as my cr-10 squash ball I have designed and been adopted by many to minimise the vibration noise that the CR-10 emits.
There is a little flat I designed to use as a guide to drill the holes to line up with the system
which I will add later on.
So it works like my little sketch.
You need to buy:
- 20mm timber rod or metal tube (up to you)
-some sort of cladding (I am going to use 3mm plywood then paint it)
(once i make mine I will tell you how big each panels should be) (I will do the same for the tubes/pipe/rod)
We will need 5 panels (4 walls and one for the roof)
_ once i make mine I will show you what i have done for the front (hole with perspex infill with hinge sounds like a good idea already)
-4 squash balls
It will look a little like an ultimaker
I hope you enjoy making it.
Only thing i ask is for people to post photos here once you have created your enclosure.
I just got back from holidays so i have not made it yet!
BUT I will start printing the 3D printed parts after work tonight.
NO SUPPORT REQUIRED
NOTE: the top 4 parts to 3D print must be rotated so they sit flat on the bed (turn 180 degrees)
NO SUPPORT NEEDED
NO RAFT NEEDED
TURN TOP STL UPSIDE DOWN TO 3D PRINT
I simply modelled a little bracket that would support a tube structure to hold the frame.
then added little holes to screw the covers to each side.
and I used my previous designed leg support into it so it can sit nicely also (but you can sit it on the bench without the balls if you want to.
I just thought it would create a nice shadow line
