  • Features

    No gluing, drilling, cutting, or engraving is required for assembly. The enclosure has a modular design, meaning pieces are easily removable for access and/or printing with large spools of filament.

    Made with optically clear, lightweight 3mm thick extruded acrylic that can be solvent welded, so pieces can be repaired if broken. 

    Upgrade by using your current 3D printer to 3D print four brackets to complete the kit.

    The enclosure sits on the same table surface as your 3D printer when assembled. The small footprint adds only only 62 mm (2.44 in) along the Y-axis (from front to back).

    This enclosure is not compatible with previous generations of LulzBot TAZ 3D printers.

    Emissions and Ultrafine Particles

    This is an enclosure designed to minimize the effects of the ambient environment around your printer and keep curious hands and paws away from the heated and moving components of your 3D printer. It does include a built-in location for mounting a 40mm fan to vent air from the chamber and further modifications can be made.

    Users concerned about emissions and ultrafine articles should instead use materials made from Eastman Amphora co-polyesters such as colorFabb nGen and Chroma Strand Labs INOVA-1800. For more information, read the Guide to printing Eastman Amphora (PDF) and the ultrafine particles emission study (PDF).

    On this subject, Printed Solid notes:

    "Some designs use things like HEPA filters to reduce films for things like ABS, HEPA filters are not rated for the ultrafine particles (UFP) that people are concerned about with ABS. A better approach for managing these particles (aside from simply not using ABS) is to maintain a small pressure differential so that the enclosure is at a lower pressure than the room and particles do not flow out. You would then tie this exhaust into exhaust leaving the room."

    When cleaning, use dish soap or hand wash and a soft, clean cloth. Do not use Windex® or other glass cleaning solutions. Do not use a hard sponge, scrub, or abrasive surface.
