Box around UM3-heat issues


Recommended Posts

Posted · Box around UM3-heat issues

Hello,

 

I tried to put a large cardboard box around my UM3 to keep in the heat when making objects with ABS/Nylon/etc.  The issue is that without an escape, the UM3 gets very very hot, and I was wondering if this could cause damage to the motors, movement belts, etc?

 

Also, any advice on how to best keep heat in?

    Has anyone ever heard of damage to their printer from using this method?

    You might want to get the Advanced 3D printing kit with the front door. That's sufficient for Ultimaker materials including Nylon, ABS and CPE+.

     

    I can only recommend never to build an enclosure for a FFF 3D printer out of material that can easily burn like cardboard.
