After encountering some warping issues on my TAZ 6, I designed and built an enclosure to help keep the environment consistent. The electronics is outside of the enclosure and it fits the outside of the TAZ 6 like a glove. There are cutouts for all the protrusions on the frame including screws and the spool holder system. I’ve got two fan mounts for adding ventilation later and I’ve also got a couple of mount points for adding a spool holder on top if I want it.
The whole enclosure is designed in two sections to allow easy portability and so that I can remove the front if I need to get at the workings of the machine. There are also easily removable cutouts that provide handles on the enclosure for ease of transport. A large latched door is made of acrylic and there are two windows on top to allow light and visibility. But otherwise the outside is made of ABS connected together by V-Slot and Makerlink.
I’ve got full details of the build including design files and assembly instructions at the project page at: http://tenrec.builders/chrysalis/
I’ve also got the materials for a few extra enclosures, so if you want a kit of it that is ready to go, you can get one: https://store.diybookscanner.org/products/chrysalis-3d-printer-enclosure
Feel free to ask me any questions about the design. Or if you notice an inconsistency in the documentation or a way to improve the build, I’d love to hear about it.
