3d Printer Enclosure from Upcycled Furniture
It took time but it turned out great! It wasn't fun taking apart the printer to route cables however. But I am very happy with the results!I ended up designing my own brackets to attach the two tables together. I'll attach the STL here
I used Ikea "Fabrikör" for my delta printer enclosure. This is a metal/glas cabinet which looks quite nice.
Im planning on using a raspberry pi for octoprint with my wanhao duplicator i3, do i need to purchase another raspberry pi for this? Or can I use the same one?
What size sheets are the acrylic in inches? Sorry if this is a dumb question!

hi . guys what do you use as a buildpladte in your printes ?
Just my 2 cents, but I went to my local habitat for humanity thrift store and bought a bathroom vanity to set my printer on. That was four years ago, back when my crust old Solidoodle was my machine. What I'm going to do now is adapt this design to add the Lack table on top of the vanity cabinet. This will give me a ready made frame for plexi that I can adapt to the top of my cabinet.
I totally agree, putting the i3 on top of just 1 table puts it at a very awkward height for me and makes bed leveling a huge pain. And I like having the filament above the printer as well, but I've been experimenting with running the filament from underneath, but over the top bar of the printer so the filament doesn't come in at an awkward angle and it's worked just fine. Other than that, I'm planning on keeping extra filament in a box under the lowest table, and tools (pliers, tweezers, glue sticks and works in progress) under the second table. Anyone have a problem with the cable length for the control box though? I want to keep my control box outside of the enclosure so the circuits don't overheat, curious to see if anyone else has a problem with the control box being a tad bit too short to reach one table below?
did the Wanhao - Duplicator i3 - V2 fit?
anyone tried this setup on a Wanhao - Duplicator i3 - V2 , will it fit ?
If you need to customize the height of the enclosure like i did I've made a remix of a previous object with openscad allowing you to enter your own heights.http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1418719
also, did you piggyback the leds, fan, thermometer off of the existing power source for the 3d printer or did you add a secondary power source? - smiles8557
Great Idea, will be doing it myself. What is the height space available inside? I have found a way of increasing if necessary.Thanks - CraigE16
what was the pi for?
The black tables are currently 7.99!
the printer the author was using in this very instructable is actually extremely similar to yours. It should fit just fine.
I'm looking at building this enclosure for my Folgertech Prusa i3 2020 but I'm worried about it fitting. Has anyone put this printer into this type of enclosure?
I wanted more space between the tables, so I made these spacers/leg retainers. If I printed them again I would make them 10mm shorter for perfectly square windows.http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1258633
I made this enclosure and it is great! Even with the plexiglass sides it gets up to 42 C on the inside on its own in just 30 minutes. I added tape insulation on the top so maybe that helps some. For the filament hole in the top, I made a slit on the bottom of the table for the filament to be able to move a bit easier and just a round hole at the top. The tables are essentially thick cardboard so there are 2 solid surfaces and corrugation between them. I also made mine with hinges for the door. They are sort of a half hinge so the door is still removable if desired. The parts can be found here:http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1227270
