Yes, I'm using this super simple setup.

The only thing is that if you really want to use the full bed of the UM3, the head will stick out of the front about a cm, but I don't think I ever needed that...

Nice, I was thinking about building a Full enclosure for heat and noise purposes. Do you think some ventilation is needed? I worry about getting too hot inside.

 

some ventilation will be needed, but mostlikly the main purpose is to stop the draft.

as the bed and the extruders are temp controlled they should be able to cope with the hood

    I used to print ABS on an enclosed UM2 with a E3Dv6 hotend. This hotend would block if the temperature in the enclosure got to high. I did not do many enclosed prints on the UM3 jet but it looks like the CORE of the UM3 can handle a much higher enclosed temperature, I'm not 100% sure but I think on the UM3 I had the enclosed temp stabilizing around 50c. I drilled a few holes in the plastic topcover to let out some of the hot air.

    I measure using this 5 euro meat thermometer, just hang it over the edge of the printer.
