This is my beloved Creality Ender 3 Pro enclosure.
All i used:
-24V-5V Step down converter
-Y-Wire XT60 ( For Power Ender and Raspberry at the same Power supply)
- 2 x Hinges
-Red spray paint
-Black Acrylic paint
-Red filament (Greeetech)
-16mm MDF plates
-wood to build a frame for the Plexyglas
-24V LED Stripes
-velcro fastener ( M3)
Building the frame
I startet to put the cutted MDF-plates together to build a frame for the enclosure. To give it a strong fit i used wood dowels and wood glue.
Beer, perfectly as weight^^
Then i painted the Frame Black with black acrylic color and the plexyglas frame with red spray paint and glued it together.
The last piece of the plexyframe, i glued in together with the Plexy glas.
To give it a strong fit i used a little bit of silikon to make sure the glas wont move in the frame.
Then i used 2 hinges to give the enclosure a little "door".
With this you can move your printer in and out a little easier.
Soldering the LED's
I used 24V RGB LED stripes and soldered them together for a perfect fit in the enclosure.
To light it up, i directly connected them to the Ender 3 Power supply.
For the frontdoor i used also Plexyglas and designed some put in splints. The handle i just iownloaded on Thingiverse.
Added some red V-slot covers
For the Spool i downloaded a Spool holder on Thingiverse ( put the Link in if i found again).
Then i Created a filament inlet and a cable inlet to put it all together.
I put the power supply out of the enclosure to protect it from heat. For easy move i put
velcro fastener between the power supply and the enclosure.
For powering the raspberry pi and the Printer at the same time i used a stepdown converter LM2596 and a Y-wire XT 60
i also use a raspi cam to watch my printings.
Leave a little space to fill with a PTFE Tube in different sizes for different filament diameters.
