Minimize warping caused by drafts or cold 3D printing environments with the LulzBot Mini Enclosure by Printed Solid. This enclosure helps keep curious hands and paws away from heated and moving parts of your 3D printer. This acrylic enclosure kit can be assembled without gluing, drilling, cutting, or engraving. Separate tools and 3D printed parts are required, see more information below.
Works with: LulzBot Mini
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.
The enclosure is made with optically clear, lightweight 3mm thick extruded acrylic.
The extruded acrylic can be solvent welded, so pieces can be repaired if broken.
There is a built-in location to mount a 40mm fan to vent air from the enclosure.
Upgradable using your current printer, 3D print four brackets to complete the kit.
When assembled, the enclosure sits on the same table surface as your 3D printer.
Small footprint, adding only 105mm in the Y-axis (from front to back).

- Remote 3D Printing with OctoPi
Remote control of 3D printers is a particularly appealing concept. We believe using your new 3D printer should be as simple as plugging it into your PC, uploading some G-Code and pressing 'Print'. However, having a laptop or desktop PC cluttering up ...
- The Hipster Coaster
We wanted to make a interactive display of the fun that can be had with DIY projects to take to Sydney Mini Maker Faire. We decided to do so by utilising the TinkerKit Braccio from Arduino.org, alongside some 3D Printing ingenuity, for an engaging display for all ages. Enter the Hipster Coaster in all its glory. All the parts were printed seperately on our family of Lulzbot 3D Printers, later stuck together using a mi...
