This is specifically sized to nicely fit a CR-10 (printer only). I wanted to build an enclosure that's light, from printed parts and from materials that are easy to work with. For panels you can use thin flexiglass, plywood, cardboard, foamboard, corrugated plastic, etc., or any combination. For plexiglass I used 2mm thick. The panel slots are 3mm wide. I used 4mm thick foam board and corrugated plastic for the back sections, just have to squish the sides to make them fit. The enclosure can be enlarged by scaling the frames (not the corners).
The 2 section design allows for easy access of the print, to distribute the weight and bulk for easy removal from the table.
Before you embark on creating this thing, consider the following:
1) where to locate the controller box
2) are the cables long enough
3) are the moving cables going to cause any issues
4) where to put filament
5) is it big enough for your current setup and other mods
1) printed parts
2) panels, your choice of material
3) bolts and nuts, m4 or 6-32 (locking nuts recommended, those with plastic inserts)
4) superglue, gel type recommended
5) foam sheets https://www.michaels.com/creatology-adhesive-foam-sheet/M10032002.html
Assembly tips :
1) print a pin and test the fit, scale accordingly
2) tap the pieces in place, don't force them in
3) don't over tighten the bolt / nuts
4) measure twice, cut/glue once
5) be patient :) and enjoy the build process, don't rush to eliminate mistakes
Assembly overview :
See PDF file and pictures for reference, scale in mm
1) using the pins, dry-fit the corners, frames and panels.
2) confirm the dimensions
3) when satisfied with measurements, pull the frame/corner apart just enough to expose the pin, apply a dab of superglue and press the parts together.
4) drill through the panels and bolt the panel to the frame, bolt latch where applicable
5) cut foam sheets and stick at the bottom of sections and opening of back section
6) cut opening for side access and install side access frame and door
