It’s yet another IKEA 3D printer enclosure, but with custom electronics on it! There’s an OctoPrint plugin I wrote, that communicates with an Arduino I programmed, which sends and receives signals of all sorts, so the whole setup is less boring!
I also have a script that automatically runs every few minutes and takes a picture of the printer. This image updates regularly.
- LED strips!
- Motorized “air filter”
- Limit switch to detect the front panel
- Thermometer to measure air temperature
- LCD display that shows:
- Printer status
- Print progress as a percentage
- Air temperature
The Monoprice Maker Select i3 v1 has no enclosure. So, this is how I used to print ABS.
This is obviously a non-ideal setup.
My mom also wanted to get rid of a pair of LACK corner tables, so I decided to hop on the LACK Enclosure train and build my own!
