So I decided I wanted a piece of furniture for my printer to reside in. I have a bunch of rough cut mahogany left over from ammunition crates during the golf war, and this is what has become of sum of it.
It is built from mahogany, birch plywood panels and a few 3d printed parts. at the top for filament to enter is a 1 foot long slot with brushes on both sides to try ant retain heat. The electronics enclosure port I used from JonathanB’s hot box enclosure. I did design a simi matching internal trim plate for it. Also designed and 3d printed adjustable inset door stops for the door.
The black bottom is also a drawer so the printer can be pulled out for maintenance.
Im not sold on the door, which is why weatherstripping has not been added, I may change my mind and make it a sliding door.
The base will match the top in materials, it will have one drawer (not full depth, there will be a shelf on the back for a ups power supply) Under the drawer will be a cabinet for storing filament. the bottom sill be weatherstripped so that I can make use of a small dehumidifier.
Tell me what you think!
