Here is a tip for everyone that likes using ABS to make a quick cheap hot box. for the CR.
2 pieces of "Tri-fold foam board, one piece regular foam board. from Dollar General. Total cost $9.00.
Tape the 2 tri-folds together to make a 22" x 28" x 19" box. cut out a 17" x 9" door in the front and hinge it at the joint.
put it around your printer and top it off withe the 3rd piece if foam board.
it works like a charm and keep the temp. inside very warm preventing warping.
I'm sure this has been used before but it don't hurt to be repeated..
I was actually just considering building an insulation box for my CR-10! thanks!
Thanks! Does anyone have pictures?
here is a quick photo Jim. Hope it helps.
Thanks, I like it. It is functional and easy to fold up and put out of the way if you do maintenance or use different materials. I'm thinking about making one soon, and I was going to go with the pink 8x4 insulation boards from Home Depot or Lowes to make mine. This may be a cheaper option. Great workshop btw!
