For a while I had wanted an enclosure to keep the heat around the printer to stay there in its own little biome. The problem is there arnt many fully enclosed things like that out there, so I made my own. It was designed to fit Prusa i1-i2, but the design is easily modified for other sizes.

This thing is still in heavy beta and I will be updating it to perfection as I go through iterations of cutting.


Open Enclosure (insert version number here).stl is to be lasercut. The material must be about 6mm thick. I'd suggest separating the doors from the rest of the design if you want to lasercut the frame in wood and the doors in acrylic, I'll probably get around to doing that eventually.
