I am posting my plans to the enclosure for the CR-10.

I made mine quite a bit wider so I can change filament and get to extruder easily, but I left minimum dimensions as well. I reused spool holder from CR-10 and mounted to frame.

Here is most everything you will need:

Aluminum tube 30 mm x 30 or 1 /4” x 1 1/4

Foam sealing tape (26' was just too short of the large cabinet size, will need two orders)

Hinge hardware www.cshardware.com
54.25.02 hinges 4 pairs
54.27.02 slip on catch 4 pcs
58.22.08 strong double magnetic latch 4 pcs

Desk hole cover

Plywood Top and Bottom 1/2" 2 pcs : 28 5/16 x 25 11/16

1/4” Acrylic Sheet (measure final openings in your sides and subtract 10 mms from all directions to leave a gap of 5 mms all around)

Self tapping screws for aluminum, wood screws for wood to wood

If you make one from my designs please post your photos here!

Here is what I settled on for my enclosure heater. Wanted it to get to 60 C or higher pretty quickly and have decent control of the temp set.

Bleiou 2pcs PTC ceramic air heater 100W 110V conductive type https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01COPT7BG/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_tai_d-FnAbVRESJM0

bayite AC 110V Fahrenheit Digital Temperature Controller 10A 1 Relay with Sensor https://www.amazon.com/dp/B011VGASLW/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_tai_y-FnAbDMD6AM9

The temp controller has wiring diagrams to power directly, as in this case, or even just act as a switch to regulate externally powered elements.

Was torn between 12v and 110v, thought 12 might be safer, but this 110 wouldn’t need a transformer and I liked its profile, and having 2 strips means I can spread them out.
