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).

- Time lapsing in OctoPrint (Properly!)
Now that we have decked out our Lulzbot Taz 6 3D Printer with a really nice looking acrylic enclosure, I'm just about ready to turn on some serious 3D printing work. But before I dive into that endless pool of fun, it's a good time to take 5 minutes and set up our Taz 6 and it's OctoPrint Server with a bed-mounted camera and light system. That way I can monitor my prints from the other side of the warehouse using OctoPrint, and m...
- The Hipster Coaster

All the parts were printed seperately on our family of Lulzbot 3D Printers, later stuck together using a mi...
