Powering 3D Printers and Enclosures

One question we get is:  do we have to take apart the printer and attach wires to make the fans and lights work?

The answer is no!  Most people don't want to have to deal with taking apart cases and hook up wires.  Instead, we only supply USB-powered accessories such as fans and LED lights.

What we use in our print farm are small power strips that also have USB-outlets built right in.  It's safe, easy, and reduces wiring clutter.  To find one just go to your favorite online retailer and search for "USB power supply strip" to see a bunch of inexpensive options.


Here's what one of these looks like next to an enclosure.  One little power strip and it handles the printer, the fan, AND the LED strip too.
