I laser cut the panels from 3mm (1/8") Acrylic. It comes to approx 5 sq ft of material. The clips I laser cut from 5mm Acrylic. They could just as easily be 3D printed, but I’m a firm believer that; “when you have a laser cutter, every project looks like a laser cutter project.” Just kidding I laser cut them because it was very quick, and they look great that way. They might actually be stronger if they were printed.
I put the design files for the side panels, clips, hinges, and door latch on Thingiverse. Links are here:

I could upload the same design files here, if that is the preferred way to do it.
The front an back of the enclosure were more complicated than a simple cut out. They need to attach to the frame, be removable easily, and accommodate Y axis travel of the build platform.
I designed the front and back of the enclosure to assemble with no fasteners, and no adhesives. They are not “formed,” but rather use laser cut flat panels with tabs to lock them together. Works really nice and allows for a compact flat pack, easy to assemble enclosure that requires no tools to install. (well, other than an allen wrench for the hinges, and to install the filament arm bracket.
If you’d like a set of panels cut for an enclosure, let me know, and we can talk about a price., if you wanted to 3D print the rest of the enclosure parts. If you wanted me to 3D print all the parts and provide a complete kit, that is doable as well.
