Why 3DUP Fitters?
I'd been keeping three 3D printers busy nearly 24/7 in my home for a while, and it didn't bother me. But when a significant other moved into the house, they noticed right away: the smell of plastic permeated everything. So I read up on the effects of 3d printers on indoor air quality and concluded the long-term effects of breathing in plastic fumes couldn't be healthy, especially for kids.
Since enclosures can both reduce fumes and help you make better prints, the answer was a win-win for everyone. But once you automate making three, it's easy to make more, so I bought extra acrylic and put up a website.

There are many DIY enclosure projects out there. But for those of you who would rather be 3D printing than figuring out how to make a DIY enclosure out of Ikea parts, these kits are beautiful, furniture-grade, easy-to-assemble 3D printer enclosures and accessories.
We combine customer-centered advanced engineering with attractive design, top-quality materials, and excellent customer service. As a result, our customers include the top tier in the technology, transportation, and education sectors as well as traditional schools, small businesses, libraries, and hobbyists.
|Custom Made for Your Enclosure||Don't put your printer in a big box that's one size fits all! We start by actually purchasing the 3D printer and taking it apart to figure out how the power supply, board, hot end, and fans work together. Using that knowledge, we design an enclosure and verify the basic functionality using CAD modeling before doing extensive testing in our lab.|
Electronics Temperature Management
We were the first to create a negative airflow model in a 3D printer enclosure, using vents to bring cool air to the electronics. The days when you'd have to disassemble the printer case and remove the power supply and motherboard are gone.
Just designing an enclosure in a CAD program isn't rocket science, but that isn't enough to create a reliable 3D printer enclosure that protects your lungs, creates reliable prints, and won't harm your printer.
We start by creating a temperature model showing how the airflow will be affected by the heat of the bed and hot end.
Once we build the prototype, we verify that it works using a multi-channel temperature logger, smoke testing for airflow, VOC data sensors for air quality, and finally, thorough testing with the actual 3D printer. We know our enclosures work well because we use them every day to churn out enclosure parts.
