Didn't fill it in but here my 5 cent.
I own an enclosure. My opinion is that putting the printer with all the hardware inside an enclosure will cause overheating problems. The steppers will run hot and the electronics as well. I closed the printer area not the whole machine and placed the motors outside. Since electronics are at the bottom they still get fresh cool air. A enclosure only makes sense when printing abs. For pla it is not needed and it might get too hot.
When printing abs (110 degrees build plate) the air in the enclosure gets to at least 45 degrees.
Filled it out, including feedback on different researches and opinions.
I'd advise to make the top also from a see through material. I look at my printer top down quite often due to placing of the printer.
