Enclosure for mk3s/mk2s: Prusa-box

Hi,

First I hopes I am allowed to present my project here.

I was starting by doing my own diy enclosure with aluminium profile, plexiglass, wood...etc But I was not satisfied of the design. I am also working in sheet metal industry and based on this experience. I design a new enclosure.
Prusa box is a kit with stainless steel part, transparent doors, printed parts and hardware necessary for assembling.

We design also part for a lot of accessory: raspberry, screen, webcam, HEPA filter, temperature control, mmu2 integration...etc

Here some pict of the enclosure:

Feel free to ask any questions.
Thanks in advance.

Julien

So, this is an ad?  Looks like a nice box.

Hello Julien!

Just some observations from across the pond.

I like the general idea, but...

-> I already gave Prusa my money.  I unless they pay me for "Prusa" logo advertisement on my enclosure, I'm not cool with "Prusa Box" on the top of the case.  As for the "box" part of "Prusa Box", we all know it is a box.  Nothing to brag about there.  Show me an Hermes scarf, or purse that says "Hermes" on it, and I may change my mind.

-> Would be nice to get PC instead of Acrylic panels.  PC takes heat better, and I can cut it, drill it, yell at it like an ex-wife, and I will still be good.  Not so with Acrylic.

-> Your website is wild and crazy in a bad way.  What exactly do I get for my order?  Is is a retail site or a video game?

-> Does a paving stone with sorbothane bumpers fit?  Will there be enough room after that for an MMU?

-> Shipping to USA is seriously a deal killer.  Not your fault, but might be worth offering a configuration without the panels, which I assume (just me assuming, perhaps incorrectly) might make shipping to the USA more thoughtful.  Panels to then be source locally.

I ended up buying this:

Don't have it in hand yet, but I get PC (lexan) panels, and 2020 framing.  With 2020 framing, I can attach all kinds of stuff, and easily expand it out any way I like.  I'll update my opinion next week when I have it in hand.

Anyway, very nice to see somebody putting serious thought into an enclosure.  I really did not like the Lack setups.  Never seen one in person, but it just did not work for me.

Good luck with your enterprise!

Don’t trust forum advice....

I agree with Eric on the logo, a lot. Otherwise I like it 🙂

@skia : Some people are using the logo plate outside of the enclosure. It will hide the Prusa box logo.

Too funny. Makes a claim that a HEPA filter with charcoal removes VOC's. Also, seems you have to print all of your own plastic parts: they don't come with the 250 euro kit. 

All that said - this is a commercial post in a user to user Prusa owned forum. Did you get permission from Prusa to advertise here?

The Logo

What a bunch of Sour C$$p, your problem is the LOGO. Now I am guessing, are your printers at home who is going see the advertising. How many people would even know that it did not come the way they see it. And  by the way your house will smell a lot better if the air coming out of your printer was filtered. There is nothing on the market that will even come close to the quality of this box for the same money. So that is why I ordered one. Most people are proud of the Prusa Printer they bought  you noticed what is all over it the same name. Give the guy a break  he is proud of what he built and so will I be

Thanks Julien
