Prusa MK2/MK3/MK3S+ Acrylic Enclosure Case Box Tent Kit

Regular price $249.00 Sale

This enclosure box is specifically for the stock Prusa  MK2, MK3, MK3S, and MK3S+ without the MMU2 attachment.  

Have you modified your printer?  Let us know before buying!

The Prusa i3 line has the capabilities, fit, finish, and attention to detail of a much more expensive printer. In a market awash with inexpensive printers full of crappy parts that wear out quickly, everything about the Prusa i3 is quality. Its hot end can print anything, there's a best-in-market removable bed, and the slicer is tuned to make the most of the printer.

The only thing the Prusa lacks is an enclosure box or case to make full use of its capabilities. Our Prusa enclosure kit retains the offensive odors and air contaminates from melting plastics and creates better-looking prints to boot. This product is a professional-grade, cool-looking enclosure you can assemble in about an hour and works with a stock Prusa i3: no modifications needed. 

Advantages of adding a 3DUPfitters enclosure:

  • Provides outside air to the power supply with no modifications to the printer
  • More flexibility to print different types of filaments, including ABS
  • Optional fume filter or vent to the outside improves indoor air quality (both sold separately)
  • A controlled temperature creates better quality prints
  • Includes spool holder

The enclosure kit works by retaining the bed's heat to bring the ambient temperature up high enough, stabilizing ABS and other filaments that expand when they cool. The optional fan will draw cold air across the power supply, simultaneously heating the air and cooling the supply. The heated air circulates within the enclosure, providing a steading temperature. The expelled air can be vented into the room, sent through an optional air filter (not included), or vented to the outside via a hose. (not included)

Temperature Range

Internal temperatures vary depending on the ambient room temperature outside the enclosure as well as where you measure the temperature.  We use these enclosures to print both PLA and ABS daily, so rest assured the temperatures are "safe" to use.

For obvious reasons, we recommend always printing PLA with the fan on, and printing ABS with the fan off.   

 Filament Fan On Fan Off
PLA 31C N/A
ABS 36C 44.8C


Prusa MK2 Support

Note that because of the close tolerance around the power supply, the height of the printer must be stock for the MK3 with its rubber feet. The MK2 will also fit, but getting it to be the correct height will involve the use of one of the many feet available on Thingiverse.  The latest solution is a really cool dual-material and anti-vibration design from one of our customers.

Acrylic Thickness

 Model Description
All 3mm The entry-level model has all 3mm acrylic and is a great option for a hobbyist or someone new to 3D printing. 
6mm Front, 3mm Sides The most popular model has a 6mm front and 3mm sides.  This configuration works great for customers who expect more heavy use such as libraries or schools.
6mm Front and Top, 3mm Sides If you want to use 3Kg+ spools on top of the enclosure then the 6mm top upgrade is a good idea.  This is the configuration we use in our print farm and it works great.
All 6mm If you want to gain a couple of degrees of heat retention or intend to move your enclosure around a lot you can't go wrong with the 6mm all-around option.  Note that if you choose that option you don't also have to purchase the 6mm top upgrade.
