3D printer case

Post by daves » Fri May 26, 2017 9:31 pm

Has anyone built a case for their Geeetech Prusa i3? I currently cover mine with a cardboard box when required, but it would be much nicer to have a more professional enclosure (e.g. Makerbot Replicator or Ultimaker 3 series). I was thinking that it would be cool to build the sides out or perspex, but connect the edges and corners with 3D printed parts.

Has anyone done anything similar? Thanks in advance

I haven’t built one for the Prusa i3, but I did build a case for the A10M out of ABS, which as you know is great for wear resistance and high temperature resistance through lengthy projects. It’s not too difficult to do, obviously measure your machine, build all the parts with your printer and then assemble. I added a small ventilation system in the top of mine just to keep the temperature homogenous. I can explain more details if you’d like to ask! (I bought my A10M from dibbsto (https://www.dibbsto.co.uk/product/geeet ... d-printer/)
