Introduction: CNC Enclosure

After building a CNC machine I quickly realized I needed something to enclose the machine for both noise mitigation and dust control.  So I built a pretty simple OSB box.  The sound has been greatly reduced as has the dust.  The project required two 4'x8' OSB sheets, about six 2"x4"s, and a 24" x 28" plexiglass pane.  Regular square drive screws were used to attach all sides.

A normal conversation can now be had while watching the machine do its thing.  A very worthwhile project for loud CNCs.

Thanks for taking a look.

    Does the dust stick to the plexiglass?

    Add a bit of weatherstripping to the area around the door... it will help a bit more. Also consider some magnetic catches or even a gate catch so you don't have to keep latching the bungee cord.

    @sleeping - Not much. I was going to put in two windows but decided that one was enough on the side. Thanks to taking a look.
