UP Enclosure

Post by cordawg92 » Thu Oct 03, 2013 3:41 pm

Hey guys,

I just wanted to share an enclosure that I put together for my UP Plus 2. I downloaded the design from thingiverse here: http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:78074 and I cut it out of Acrylic using a laser cutter.

I highly recommend it to anyone who is looking for a low cost solution for an enclosure. Everything fits perfectly, and I didn't run into any issues while putting it together. I ended up having to buy some 8mm M3 bolts to replace the regular 5mm M3 that hold the case together (Since I used 3mm Acrylic).

Here are some pictures: http://imgur.com/a/gr4l2

I also modified by extruder by adding a heatsink to the motor (I'm not sure if this improves print quality, but it makes me feel like it'll give me extruder motor a longer lifespan.

I'd be interested in knowing what you guys thought!
