The Artillery Sidewinder X1 3D printer has been getting a lot of buzz in the 300x300mm bed size market: whisper-quiet, synchronized Z, really fast bed heater, and amazingly well designed overall, especially the wiring. 

The biggest problem when designing an enclosure box for an all-in-one case design is how to keep the electronics cool while keeping the printing parts hot.  The Sidewinder has a strong fan that brings in air from the sides of the case, blows it over the electronics, and then out the bottom vent.  We added custom scoops on the sides that bring in air to cool the electronics, and then directs the heated air out of the front.  

We also added a second fan that is part of the enclosure that you can turn on and off to help regulate the interior temperature depending on what you're printing.

The custom spool mount adapter allows you to use the stock spool holder and filament runout sensor while still using the enclosure.

Adding a 3D•Upfitters enclosure provides many benefits:

  • More flexibility to print different types of filaments, including ABS
  • Better quality prints because the ambient temperature is controlled
  • Fume filter to reduce smell or vent to the outside (sold separately)
  • Quieter prints
  • Sturdy, thick, high-grade acrylic doors that allow easy access to the printer bed

These enclosures are easy to install and made for 24/7 use: thick 6mm acrylic doors and 3mm thick sides.  It's designed for easy filament changes and access to the bed and hot end through the front doors. In the rare case you can't access the printer adequately through the side or front doors, the whole thing is light enough to take off any time you want without removing any cables.

How it's Built

All of the plastic parts are 3D printed in ABS to withstand the heat from the enclosure. The panels are cut on an American-built industrial CNC or laser and then flat packed for your assembly.  All you need for assembly is just a hex wrench and a small Philips head screwdriver.  (not included.)
