Alternatives to IKEA LACK enclosure

Any suggestions for an alternative to an IKEA LACK based enclosure for the Mini?

 

The LACK is both too big, with the amount of space it would take up on my bench. And too small as there is not really enough room of the filament inside the enclosure (IMHO).

A discussion group already exists for various enclosure designs:

Maybe you will find something suitable 👍

I am coming round to the LACK. Just need a USB extension lead (or Octoprint).

And a filament sensor holder by the looks of yours.

Filament Guide + Filter

Filament sensor holder- I've used the not improved version, but I honestly think it's better

Arm for the sensor holder- I've been using the 70 mm and it's great

 

you need 2 bolts and a nut, all of them are in the mini spare parts bag
