3D Printer Enclosure
Temperature Controlled 3D Printer (Prusa3D i3 MK3) Enclosure STL Files 2.0 (2019-03-12)  

Temperature controlled enclosure with motion sensor LED lights. JocysCom-Enclosure.zip file size: ~10MB

Maximum temperature inside enclosure depends on temperature of the room and heated 3D printer bed. Stable higher temperature inside enclosure reduces warping and detaching of bigger parts from the plate. Control precision is 1°C. HOW IT WORKS: If temperature rises +1°C above set limit (for example, set limit is +40°C and temperature rises to +41°C), two “MH1210A” controllers start fans (ventilation) and drop temperature to +40°C. Tested temperature limit +40°C (didn't want to go higher). In order to achieve higher temperatures inside enclosure, insulation must be added to windows and door. All enclosure parts (cutted perspex sheets, ~2kg PETG filament (20% infill), bottle of Windex, smoke alarm, cables, controllers, etc.) cost me about €260 (tools are not included).

Parts were printed from PETG with Prusa3D i3 MK3 Printer.

If your printer is not precise enough, printed parts may not fit into each other. To test, if your printer is precise enough, you can print and try to fit into each other these two parts from “Table_3_Leg_Top_Ends.STL” file. Spaces between some parts are 0.1mm only.

1mm spaces between perspex sheets and table are for even ventilation.

2 temperature controller-fan sets are for safety, in case one set malfunctions.

Below you will find parts and tools, which will help you to assemble enclosure. If you noticed mistakes, have questions or suggestions, please write to info@jocys.com • Enclosure on Thingiverse.com

PETG Filament
PETG Filament and Printing Settings

I would not recommend to print parts from ABS (shrinkage is too big) or PLA (low heat resistance).

2018-05Prusa3DBlack PETG 1.75€22

2018-05Filament PMBlack PETG 1.75€22

2018-053DPrintzBlack PETG 1.75€27

About 2 kg with 20% infill.

10/10 - Parts printed with 3DPrintz (United Kingdom) PETG black filament had very pleasant high quality look, deep black color and even glossiness on all surfaces (top, bottom, sides). All printing settings in screenshots below. I don't know, who is 3DPrintz PETG filament manufacturer. From design of the spools, this could be NorthBridge (China) sub-brand Kexcelled (China). They claim, that they are "The largest 3D filament manufacturer in East China".

8/10 - Parts printed with Prusa3D (Czechia) and Filament-PM (Czechia) filaments had differences in surface glossiness, especially noticeable on top of the parts. Color blackness was good. Prusa3D and Filament-PM filaments are made by the same manufacturer “Plasty Mladeč” (Czechia) (2018-12-10).

6/10 - Parts printed with Real-Filament (Netherlands) PETG filament did not look as good as with other three filaments. Pale-transparent black color, differences in surface glossiness, especially noticeable on top of the parts, warping problems and stringing. I ended up printing door handles with extruder temperature 250°C and bed temperature 80°C (ends of handles did not stick well to bed with lower bed temperatures and this messed up prints). High temperatures introduced minor deformations at the bottom of the parts.

2019-06Prusa3DPrusaSlicer

PrusaSlicer is available for Windows, Mac and Linux

• "Extruder: 220°C".
• "Bed: 80°C".

• "Fill density: 20%".
• Exception is "Fill density: 60%" for door and windows holding parts.

• "Ensure vertical shell thickness: disabled" - I had problems with thin 45° hanging angles with this feature enabled.
• "Perimeters: 3" - infill pattern is less visible on surface.

• Below are modified "0.20mm QUALITY MK3" settings, oriented to reduce printing noise (slow printing speed). There are no violent vibrations with low speeds... this means lesser probability for corners of big parts to unstick from heated bed, because of shrinking.
• Exception is "Speed for non-print moves > travel: 180" - low speed, like 20, creates surface blobs after long travel distances.
• You can print (faster) with default-recommended speed settings. Slower speeds gives smoother and glossier surface without matte areas.

STL Files
STL Files

For better quality and safety... I printed majority of parts separately. To split group and to remove some parts:

1. Open “*.STL” file in PrusaSlicer Edition.
2. Click on [ Split to objects ] button.
3. Select parts one by one, which you don't want to print.
4. Press [ Del ] key on keyboard.

“Undo” doesn't work for deleted parts from virtual plate. If wrong part is deleted, you will need to load “*.STL” file again and repeat the steps.

You can edit STL files with free and open source 3D creation suite Blender.

Import “*.STL” file:

  1. Blender 2.8 > File > Import > Stl (.stl).

If imported STL object is not visible:

  1. Select imported object in “Scene Collection” list (top-right panel).
  2. In “Object Mode“ (top-left drop-down) > Object > Set Origin > Geometry to Origin.
