Continuing the discussion from Furniture for enclosures:
So I figured I’d break out from my original thread to discuss what I’m doing for my enclosure. Please everyone feel free to chime in and offer suggestions… I’m flying by the seat of my pants here so if I’m planning to do something dumb please let me know.
So here’s where we are so far. I bought the Rakkestad wardrobe and a couple of shelves from Ikea. After some preliminary measurements I found it was one of only a couple that would actually fit the CR10s Pro V2. Here is how I have it currently set up:
My plan is to print a desktop spool holder and feed it through a bowden tube drilled through the top shelf and fed to the printer below. I will also print a ribbon cable chain that will redirect it behind the printer. Then I intend to line the print chamber with ceramic fiber to offer some fire protection and temperature insulation. I’ll also add a smoke detector, LED light strip, and if I can find an inexpensive solution a automatic fire suppression device. Then I will cut some holes in the shelf the printer is on and put in some cooling ducts to the printer from below to keep the electronics cool. Then I want to put in a temperature control system in the main chamber to keep it as warm or cool as I need it depending on the filament being used. Eventually I also want to add a HEPA/activated charcoal filtration system to minimize any VOCs and fumes (I work in this same room all day every day so it seems prudent).
The shelf below the printer will contain the rPi and the smart power strip controlled by the Pi and Octoprint. I’ll also set up my IR camera in the chamber to monitor.
SO… anyone have any thoughts or concerns about what I’m doing? Anybody done something similar?
