Box for 3D Printer - help! (plexiglass thickness issue)

Hi Everyone, 

Couple of weeks ago, I have purchased an i3 MK3S printer and I love it! Recently I have started experimenting with other materials (beside PLA) as well, but I ran into some issue with warping. 

Found this awesome article with instructions on how to build your own custome 3D printer box from scratch - and I have decided to build it myself. 

https://blog.prusaprinters.org/cheap-simple-3d-printer-enclosure/

I have purchased everything on the list, but I have encountered an issue with the plexiglass thickness - for some reason, I could not find many clear plexiglass with 3mm thickness (which is mentioned in the article), in most of the places I have looked, they have either 2mm or 4mm (in Czech Republic BTW), so for that reason, I have purchased the one with 4mm thickness. 

In the the article, there  are links to download the printed parts, but there are designed only for the 3mm thickness - and since I am pretty new to 3D printing, I dont know how to adjust them, so they will be useable for plexiglass with 4mm thickness...

Can anyone please advice me, how can I adjust the printed parts for the box, so they can be used for the 4mm thick plexiglass? 

Thank you!

There are many remixes of the original enclosure on thingiverse already so you dont need to alter the parts yourself.  Try https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2776584 which has 3,4,5 & 6mm variants.  Spend some time looking at all the options on there.
