This set of parts is sorely in need of an update.

  1. The PSU brackets should be designed so that the PSU is attached to the top LACK, not the bottom LACK. That would allow people use one LACK table for the enclosure. I already have a steady table so I'm not going to use another unstable LACK table as a base.

  2. The PSU wires are much shorter than this design assumes. The PSU must be mounted on the left side, not the right. Therefore, the enclosure holders that have a gap for the PSU wires are on the wrong side.

  3. There is an alternate version of the enclosure holders that use the existing Ikea hardware, instead of requiring all new screws. That version should be used instead. https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2948686

  4. The holder that allows for PSU cables to enter the enclosure isn't big enough for a USB cable. For that, you'll need to create a second slotted holder for the other side. In fact, I would say that both left and right rear holders should be notched for cables, just in case.

The original article on the Prusa blog is closed for comments, so I have to post this information here. Please update the blog with the above suggestions so that new users don't waste time and effort.
