What enclosure size will I need for i3 MK3S  

Reputable Member

Hi, I know the IKEA LACK enclosure but it will take many hours to print it. I am considering other options. I know that the build plate extends from the printer. What size would I need to enclose the printer with/without the filament roll on top?  In that IKEA LACK enclosure article, it states that for "long runs", it is better to put the PSU outside the enclosure. How long is long runs?

Use the Ikea dimensions for size. The MK3S fits well, with no extra space.

I have done 24 hour runs in the Ikea with no PSU problems. Just leave the doors on your enclosure open.

The psu must go outside of the enclosure, if the power supply runs in to much heat it will get bad in a short time.

And this is not measured in ours.
