This new and improved enclosure is for the CR-10/10S. If you've got a CR-10S Pro, that's a different enclosure. The CR-10/CR-10S is a pretty large printer for the money, but it lacks one of the things that separates a good printer from a great printer: an enclosure.
This lightweight enclosure was designed to mimic the look of the CR-10/10S, with matching black assembly pieces and cool see-through acrylic. They look like they were made for each other. Sure there are lots of DIY projects out there, but if you don't have the time, this is a cool-looking solution you can assemble in about an hour.
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)
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.
One unique feature of this enclosure is it uses a clever side door design where a small gap between the doors acts as a filament slit. This way you can use either a top mounted or table mounted spool holder, just like there was no enclosure at all.
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.)
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.
Interior LEDs (as pictured in the wood & acrylic version renderings) will make it easier to see prints inside the wood version.
