Yes, it reduces warp and improves print quality for me.

Thanks for sharing. Which temperature setting device from Octave are you using?

Not from Octave - the one that I designed and built myself:

I've had the Octave enclosure for a few months now and couldn't be happier. For me it helps reduce the fumes from printing and also maintains an even temp around the build platform. The last few days we've been -10 to -15 and still printing. These are shots of it. I have mad a couple of mods. Temp controller on the printer, filament holder and guide. Also relocated the power switch on the printer to the front and added a power switch to the enclosure. Not pictured here is the Ord Bot printer I am building.

The filament "roller skates" are interesting; how do you like them?

...and are the STLs public?

I do like "spool rollers" for their simplicity and ease of spool changes, but apart from the obvious limitations on spool width, if they're not a simple flat roller they also have difficulty with spools that are completely full, since the filament binds/drags on the inner part of the roller instead of just the spool edge riding in the center of the roller.

What are the advantages of having an enclosure for the filament roll?

Dry filament means less popping equal less artifact, it helps to keep your print cleaner,
More about it here:

I made a few cheap DIY filament container too, mine is less pro though...

hearbob,

I like the filament guide you created. Are the files for it available anywhere?

I just got an Octave enclosure. Can you share the STL files for your filament guide? None of the ones that I have work.

Hi I posted the stl for my guide in Thingiverse http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:228610, it's listed as a remix of Julia's "Filament guide for UP! with integrated Filament Cleaner,http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:26710. A most excellent accessory. It is the filament cleaner I attached to my filament guide (mine is a rather simple guide) as I found the one that came with the enclosure horrible. Sorry for any delay this was the first week the college I teach at was back in session and as I also over see all of the department digital labs I've been busy.
