CR-10 Enclosure Case Kit

Regular price $275.00 Sale

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-though 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. 

Note:  Many of the pictures are rendered directly from the CAD program, and so have a Pixar-like computer quality, with nice lighting, perfect reflections, etc.  The product in real life is shown in the pictures that are messy, with junk laying around on the table. :-)

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)
  • Quieter prints
  • 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 furniture grade wood.  Both versions of the enclosure are 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 large door, the sides come off with the removal of a few screws, and the whole thing is light enough to take off any time you want.

One unique feature of this enclosure it avoids the side slit most DIY enclosures have. While a slit is easy to design, the volume of the CR-10 is so large it can't maintain temperatures when there's a top-to-bottom hole in one side.  Instead, there is a custom-designed filament guide that gently redirects filament from the top-mount spool holder, optionally through the runout sensor included with the CR-10S, and into the extruder.  

The wooden version comes in 1/4 unfinished furniture grade birch plywood for you to finish as you like.  Note that since wood doesn't let in light the product is shown with LED lighting that is not included, but can be easily added.  

Note that the kit does not include a spool holder.  We think our acrylic spool holder (sold separately) is pretty awesome, but there are also dozens of DIY spool holders on Thingiverse like this adjustable roller kind of spool holder that would sit on top of the enclosure near the hole to feed in filament or this well made acrylic spool holder on eBay.  

How its Built

All of the plastic parts are 3D printed in ABS to withstand the heat from the enclosure, printed as much as possible on the Fusion3D F400, but also on upgraded FT-5 and CR-10 printers. The panels are cut on a 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.)

Includes

  • Outside dimensions 27" (Deep), 22" (Wide), 25" (Tall).   
  • Fits the CR-10/10S (300x300x400mm) NOT the S4 or S5 versions.
  • Acrylic or wood spool holder
  • Acrylic front panel with frame, doors, injection molded hinges, magnetic latch, custom designed latch mount in ABS, steel strike plates, and matching screws.
  • Acrylic or furniture grade unfinished wood panels for the rest of the sides and top with access ports for cables and filament. There is no bottom.
  • Custom-designed filament guide to make sure the filament is guided smoothly from the top-mounted filament holder to the extruder.

  • 140 screws, nuts, bolts, all connecting plastic pieces and miscellaneous parts. 

Add-ons Sold Separately

  • Upgrade to an active charcoal filter and fan to reduce fumes.
  • Upgrade the plastic knob to knurled steel.
  • Put your logo on the front or sides!
  • 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.
  • Temperature gauge
