The Ender 3 puts 3D printers in an entirely new price range. Who could have imagined you could buy a fully functional 3D printer for under $200? To make sure you get quality prints while protecting your family's lungs we custom-designed an enclosure box/case for each Ender 3 variation.
Be Sure to Pick the Right Enclosure!
The Ender 3/Pro V1, Ender 3 V2, and Ender 3 Max all share the Ender 3 moniker but are very different printers, and so have different enclosure designs. The Ender 3/Pro V1 and Max both have an externally mounted power supply that can be easily moved to the outside of the enclosure, while the V2 has a self-contained power supply that requires a vent. The "Pro" version uses the same enclosure as the regular, so if you have an Ender 3 Pro V1 then select "V1". If you have the newer Ender 3 Pro V2 choose "V2".
Ender 3 V1
Ender 3 V2
Ender 3 Max
A custom mount and extender cable to move the power supply outside of the enclosure (V1 and Max) or a power supply cooling vent for the V2 model.
Cooling vent for the electronics. (V2 and Max)
The control panel is outside the enclosure so you can make changes to the print without having to open the doors. (V2 and Max)
Comes with its own acrylic spool holder that can be placed either to the left of the printer or on top.
Power Supply Airflow
Advantages of adding a 3D UPfitters enclosure:
Better quality prints because the ambient temperature is controlled
Keeps the power supply cool while the interior is hot enough for consistent prints with advanced material
More flexibility to print different types of filaments, including ABS
Optional fume filter or vent to the outside (both sold separately)
Thick 6mm acrylic doors and 3mm sides
The enclosure works by retaining the heat from the bed to bring the ambient temperature up high enough so that ABS and other filaments that expand when they cool are stabilized. If your main concern is the smell of melting plastic, it can be mitigated using an optional carbon filter. But if you are more interested in improving overall indoor air quality, a better solution is to vent to the outside via a hose. (not included). If you just want the highest possible enclosure temperature just put on the included air vent cover and it'll heat up as hot as possible.
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 a US-made industrial laser and then flat-packed for your assembly. All you need to put it together is a hex wrench and a small Phillips head screwdriver. (not included.)
The outside venting system will send potentially dangerous and definitely odorous fumes outside. We supply the fan and 4" dryer hose adapter, you get the rest of the parts from your local hardware store.
