I played around with hot boxing my printer during some large prints. I found that the enclosure did not really help with the print lifting/warping but I hope it is because enclosure was makeshift (honestly I’m still having a hard time getting large prints to stick at the corners, even with brim).
During my experiments I found that the stepper motors became ridiculously hot to touch. I burnt my hand. Is this ok for them? Are they designed to handle the extra heat of an enclosure? I know a lot of people build enclosures, has anyone had any issues with the stepper motors in them?
I know I need to vent the electrical box or install it on the outside of the enclosure. I was leaning towards moving it to the outside of the enclosure but this becomes a pain if i ever needed to remove the enclosure, I may end up just venting it instead.
