Explore RepRapWorld’s collection of premium 3D printer enclosures. Print professionally and machine parts effectively with our selection of 3D printer enclosures that can also be used for CNC machines. Successfully trap residual heat, highly reduce printing sounds and use a wider range of filament materials than before!
There are many types of 3D printers available on the market using different designs and technologies. FDM/FFF 3D printers today are either manufactured with an open design or have built-in enclosures. With an open-design 3D printer, you can always decide at any point to add an enclosure to it. Enclosed 3D printers come with a bunch of benefits and 3D printing opportunities which we are excited to share with you.
Optimize your printing experience by using an enclosure for all your projects. An enclosure will reduce all printing sounds, and for example, allow you to print at night without having your sleep interrupted. Enclosures keep filament material odors from spreading, ensuring that harmful fumes are controlled. When your 3D printer is enclosed, there will be less heat loss and therefore also less temperature fluctuations. Consistent and accurate temperatures will highly improve your model’s properties as well as guarantee the highest 3D printing quality.
Having an enclosure can also be extremely useful depending on what you are planning on creating. With an enclosure, you can print a wider range of filament materials. For example, certain materials are very sensitive to heat and may cool down too fast, like nylon filament. It is therefore essential to use an enclosure to create successful nylon prints. Having a heated enclosure means that you can also 3D print advanced filament materials like weather-resistant filament or engineering filament where using an enclosure is always recommended.
If you are wondering whether you require an enclosure for printing certain materials, have a peek at our guide to 3D filament!
Using an enclosure is useful to reduce printing odors. This is very useful for filament materials that are known to produce a smell during the printing process like ABS filament. Our enclosures equipped with active filter systems will remove unwanted particles and toxic fumes, making the environment cleaner and safer to be in. Furthermore, an enclosure will also help makers or anyone in the vicinity to not get burned by the 3D printer’s hot components.
One of the most important reasons for having a 3D printer in a closed chamber is the overall printing quality. An enclosure will always produce the best printing quality as there will be less heat loss meaning that printed objects will cool down appropriately, avoiding warping. This will significantly cut down energy costs and save a lot of time. Consistent temperatures will be maintained throughout and the residual heat will be trapped with an enclosure.
An enclosure is also very useful for CNC machining purposes. Keeping your CNC machine will contain dust and eliminate moisture making the space corrosion resistant while keeping your surroundings clean. An enclosure will also, as it does for your 3D printer, minimize noise and ensure safety.
We offer enclosures that you can fit onto any 3D printer. Thanks to the different sizes of enclosures in this collection you can pick one that will suit your 3D printer best. Choose from well-known major 3D brands and find a Creality enclosure or Snapmaker enclosure.
These 3D brands have focused on creating top-quality enclosures and 3D printing solutions for all makers. The 3D printer enclosures by Snapmaker are specialized enclosures for their series of multi-functional 3D printers that perform laser engraving and CNC milling. Creality 3D offers enclosures for every kind of 3D printer. The different sizes can be selected to fit the smallest sized 3D printers to big 3D printers!
