3D printer enclosure
|This is the rendered out cut files for the sides.|
I could probably do a better job at laying
things out but it works, so I'm not going to worry
HOW I DID IT
I wanted to do a little bit more that cardboard for these guys. So as the norm I took to OpenScad to make up the parts needed for this thing, and I did something a little different that what you normally see me do, I made 2D drawing. In cad you can do things like cube(); normally but most people don't know that you can do things like square(); and make 2D things, this is what needed for something like a laser cutter. So I made up some corners, and hinges and a handle for the door. Those parts you have to print, and then with a very settings you can also render out the files for your sides / top and bottom. I think it would be cool to made the walls out of some thick acrylic, that way its safe, and you can still see your printer inside. I also added some extra things like a vent hole, if you want to do something like have the fumes from the printer go straight out side instead of build up in this case. and a power cable hole, this was just needed and I almost forgot about it. I hope they get some use out of it, if I had a laser cutter at my disposal I would for sure make one for my self.
