I got the idea to build a sound isolated ish wooden box with a glass door. (should have a small gap between).

Then put my ultimaker original in it. Also to get more stable temps when printing Abs.

Is this a good idea or can the spool filament get over heated in there ? will it damage the electronics?

It would be better for the longevity of the electronics if you fabricated a door system and hood onto the frame itself and pulled the X and Y axis steppers out into a direct drive setup. You could leave them inside the enclosure if you wanted, but I would recommend getting some cooling fans then. You won't have to worry about the spool as the glass transition is much higher than the printing environment would be.

Okay! but still gonna try my idea out first.

Started to build A sliding platform on the bottom today.

would be more accessible to work with the umo between prints.

And a cooling fan for the Electronics board.
