Another green house

Recommended Posts

Hi all

Here is my version of a closed chamber for the UM2.

The acrylic plates I used are standard sized and glued, hence no cutting required. I spent roughly 35€ on all parts. The rear of the top lid will be covered with cloth.

The door closes with a magnet. I will add a rubber seal to the door and will have to modify and reprint the hinges.

I also have plans to add an IP camera and hock it to the door.

I plan on uploading all plans and material sources if there is any interest.

Sweet job Kris! I was looking to make one for my UM1 too, but the printed hinges look really sweet.

Won't this give a problem with hot motors, since they are still enclosed in the green house?

Yea ABS that's what I kinda knew - the fact that it really needs a more "controled enviroment", but I'm interested in PLA if there's also a difference.

Thanks for the link and please keep us updated on your progress and results. :D

Very nice work! Not nearly as brutalistic as my implementation (http://umforum.ultimaker.com/index.php?/topic/5921-um2-greenhouse-edition/). Your design also makes operating the front door easier than what I have - I might make a switch to your design for that part.

Do you have photos on how you ended up closing the rear wall of the "dome"? I tried to figure out something for that before I gave up and extended the dome to get closer to the feeder.

Thanks. I was actually inspired by your work. I have closed the rear with a cloth, similar to a curtain. Much in line with the minimalist approach ;-)
