Ultimaker 2 $10 Coroplast lid for ABS

Recommended Posts

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.

    • Architect Design Contest | People
      The goal of this contest is to design a set of people figurines that could be used in such a project to make an area, office or mall seem populated. 
      Think of different types of people in different environments, like walking people, people standing still, working people, and both men and women.

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
