enclosed printing

Finally figured out how to enclose my printers, I will be adding some foam board, and separate the printers, and then building a see through front door. The lights will be mounted once I finish the job.

not alot yet, but I want to work towards some of the parts I need more strength for, printing with ABS if possible. Truly I have found PLA to be strong enough for most of the things I have printed, but I have had to increase thickness etc. to accomplish it. There are a few parts I need the thinner walls for.

I used to use ABS a fair amount, but I honestly think a good quality PETG is a more versatile material without the fumes.

They only critique I'd offer is to keep in mind that your electronics will be happier with cool air.

I like the shelf use. I didn't realize how much I would use lighting for 3d printers.

When I rearrange mine, I may build something like a welding fume extractor nozzle with LEDs around the mouth.
