Commercial enclosure with ventilation support?  

New Member


as we would like to have a 3D printer available in our office (for hobby reasons), we are looking for a commercial enclosure similar to but from an European company (so the shipping is simpler).

I kind of struggle to find any ready-to-buy product as people usually build their own enclosures based on Ikea parts.

MK3 should fit in and it should have a ventilator hole to be connected to our central ventilation system. Advantage would be if it comes with some fire-prevention features.

Any suggestions or tips please?

If you plan on negative pressure ventilation, it might work - all those holes, ugh.   One door will make you crazy: you will be loading and unloading the printer from the chamber every five minutes.  And, PLA and chambers are not compatible unless you keep the internal temp at 25c or actively cool the extruder motor.  

There are automatic extinguishers available: I'd recommend a marine style that has a switch to cut off power if and when it goes off.


It is always wise to get more than one opinion......
