Cheap Chinese-made 3D printers are getting ever increasingly large, so how is there room in the market for the comparatively small, expensive Ohio-made printers like the Makergear M2 and M3? All you have to do is take a look at the quality from a print to see the difference. At high resolution, it's 3D printed parts look more like they were machined than 3D printed. But it's not slow either, as you can reliably crank out parts quickly using normal resolutions as well, day after day, with little or no maintenance. It’s the printer you buy when you need to get a job done, not take on a new hobby as a 3D printer repairman.
The only thing the M2/M3 is missing is an enclosure, which is where 3D UP Fitters comes in. This enclosure box/case/cover is a second-generation design based on our experience using the printer and with feedback from the Makergear factory. The quick-release grommet design means it's easy to install or remove the enclosure, and the side and front doors make it easy to use the printer as you normally would, only with heat retention and venting for superior quality prints with ABS, nylon, etc.
There are doors on the left and right sides for accessing the filament spools without having to remove the enclosure. Note that the pictures are of an earlier model for the single-extruder version that only had a door on the left. The current model is for both the single and dual extruder MakerGear M3 printers and comes standard with a front door, and left and right filament access doors.
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.
