Hi! I wanted to know if it is possible, or if anyone has tried to remove the side panels from the printer.

I would like the printer it to be more open in order to watch it work from 3 sides (such as in the Ultimaker Original). Has anyone tried this before??

Thanks!! :)

Don't cut holes in them, they are too nice looking for that ;)

If you want to, you could get some laser cut acrylic sheets and fit those instead... it should be very easy to find the drawings for the frame of the machine on GitHub (they are open source by now), modify them to your liking (draw a cutout in the centre of the side panels) and send the drawings off to a laser cutting service to have them made in 6mm. acryliic.

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
