Ultimaker/Ultimaker 2 too tall for Maker Kase?

Recommended Posts

I want to back the kickstarter for http://goo.gl/8bNNvg to keep my cats away from the Ultimaker 2 I recently ordered, but it will still let me see and access the printer easily. The cabinet outer dimensions are 24” Wide x 22” High x 22” Deep.

My question is: is the Ultimaker too tall to fit in the Maker Kase without interfering with the bowden tube?

worth asking around on the forum for good materials to make the cases from. i think a lot of people use plexi glass, that way you can see inside perfectly.

one that comes to mind is this one, however that's more construe onto the actual ultimaker. the danger with putting it all in a box is the sensitive electronics on the bottom, which need to also be cooled, would be exposed to abnormal temperatures.

    • "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.
