There are plenty very nice housings for Arduino&RAMPS but not a single one for the Chinese all-in-one version GT2560.
Attention: There are different board sizes out there. The dimensions of the hollow for the board are 110mm x 79.8mm x 36.8mm for the default version. A "universal" version is provided which should fit all board lengths.
- Internal cable storage provided
- Clam shell design
- Lid is fixated by four M4 screws - no nuts required, four threads are there
- 80mm fan can be fixated by rubber vibration dampers - cools stepper drivers and FETs
- Finally a tidy looking printer - no cable-salad
It took me probably one hour to nicely fit the cables within the box. But it was worth the effort. You'll need four 20mm M3 screws and appropriate nuts as well as any four M4 screws.

STEP and Solidworks (for SW you also need the other SLDPRT file) files are provided if you have to adjust the mounting holes or wish to add further openings.
-Added a version without the chamfers within the honeycomb-structure on the sides to improve print-ability.
-Added an universal version which should fit all GT2560 boards.
-Added a sealed version with two 40mm fans for an optimized airflow. Cleaned up history of SLDPRT file.
-Added a version for boards which are 81mm wide (version A+). Attention: Only the corresponding 81mm lid will fit.
I suggest using the setting "Lift Z during retraction" to improve print-ability of the honeycomb-structure on the sides.
You can't use the clip-on spacers any more. Use 20mm M3 screws, washers and nuts.
Take a look at the photo for suggested cable routing.
- Left opening: Heatbed and Y-Endstop
- Top opening: All X-carriage stuff
- Lower opening: Z-Axis stuff, power cable
- Lower sqare opening: Ribbon cables
- Another lower square opening: USB cable
