microcluster enclosure build!

Post by COprintingproject » Fri Jun 29, 2018 12:19 pm

Hey all!

I've been redesigning my cluster setup and am pretty happy with the current direction, what to hear what you guys think!

Instead of enclosing the printers directly (I have a lot of them) I decided to enclose a whole shelving unit so I could get the printers off of my desk and keep as make of them available as I could. The shelf units are enclosed with a corrugated plastic that insulates really pretty well, and have curved clear PETG doors in front that slide in printed channels. Having the doors curved like this is the only to fit a TAZ in a standard 2ft deep shelf, but also looks pretty cool imo :). Both shelves have lighting and smoke alarms built in for when I'm working in the other room, and hold in heat super well.

I also built up a simple photo booth setup on top of the shorter of the 2 microclusters for taking photos of prints and products, really happy with how that turned out.
