Ultimaker 2 $10 Coroplast lid for ABS


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · Ultimaker 2 $10 Coroplast lid for ABS

I have had a terrible time printing ABS so I decided to go for an enclosure. 

The door was pretty straight forward. I used a thingiverse design for the hinges and door knob.

But I couldn't find a truly affordable... aka cheap lid.  So I built my own.

I used about $10 worth of coroplast sheet and printed these corners

I designed some pivots so I could peek under lid.

I added a cheap thermometer to the front to finish it off.

 

 

If many people show interest, I could do a measured drawing of the coroplast shapes...but it is really pretty simple.

The top is a bent sheet that does the front , top and back.  2 identical sides , and there is a bottom  at the back.

 

 

I have blown through an entire roll of abs and it has been a truly remarkable difference!

I no longer fear the ABS!  The smell is contained some and it's easy to peak under the lid.


Hope someone gets some use out of this idea, I just wanted to give back.
