Enclosing the Ultimaker 2

Recommended Posts

Posted · Enclosing the Ultimaker 2

I want to put the whole unit (ultimaker 2) in a metal enclosure, so I can filter out the smell of ABS.. I was wondering if I should worry about the mainboard being too hot?

Should I add a fan to the mainboard that would blow some fresh air, or I shall be alright?

I figure the ambiant temperature in a big metal box is going to be around 40 celsius max, unless I am mistaken..

If you google "ultimaker enclosure" there are more than a couple designs. I've thought about this myself for sound, more consistent prints?, and smell. I solved the smell issue by situating the machine near the bathroom and turning on the fart fan.

I will probably buy a gorilla shelve and enclose a level with sound proof material. I will do something similar this to control the temp: http://www.adafruit.com/blog/2013/05/01/using-arduino-in-bread-making-at-home/ but using a fan.

I am not sure about what ambient temp the electronics can handle?
