Got this off thingiverse.

Yesterday I received the plexi glass cut to size according to the specs and put it together.

The difference it has made to my ABS prints is fantastic. Highly recommended

Plexi glass cost me just shy of £40,- winner

Looks awesome becky! Are you worried at all about over heating your steppers at all? Im going to be building an enclosure for my UMO+ here in a couple days and my only concern right now it letting the enclosure get too hot since the bed will be at a constant 100c for hours and I dont want anything to over heat.

With the UMO+, you can flip the X and Y motors to the outside of the case. Search Youmagine for ultimaker motor corner. You won't have to worry about them overheating, and print quality even improves. You can avoid needing new rods if you use bearing adapters.

Yeah I flipped the motors to the outside and flipped the wiring so im less worried haha and I havent finished my enclosure yet but it doesnt seem to get too hot in there but I have a bigger hole for my bowen tube so theres a good amount of space for the heat to escape. But yeah so far results have been impressive. I've been able to print at lower temps too which is always good.
