Having recently acquired a 3d printer, i quickly noticed that, despite calibrations, there were a few temperature-related problems.
The chief among them ws the amount of time the bed took to heat up, the room was not able to hold the temperature unless the doors were shut and the curtains pulled - this lead to another problem, I was overheating!
We also had problems with layer delamination on larger prints in ABS - something that could be solved by keeping the printer in a warmer environment.
I had a few "Lack" tables from IKEA laying about, and noticed that when stacked atop each other, the printer fit almost exactly inside, this gave me the idea to create an enclosure for the printer, how hard could it be?
After doing some research, I decided on a few things that I wanted for the enclosure
With this in mind, I went online and purchased the parts I needed to buy, and grabbed the STLs for parts I could print
Many of the tools and much of the advice used in this build were provided by my loca Makerspace SoMakeIt Southampton.
