We decided to make a custom cabinet for our (Maker Farm Prusa) 3D printer to help control the environment when operating for better quality prints. In addition to keeping the air currents down and the temperatures controlled it will also serve to lower the noise levels and provide a means to exhaust the air if necessary in the future.
We are using .25 an .5 inch MDF wood and acrylic (plexiglass) plastic to construct the entire project. The tools and software used are a Techno CNC router, Solid Works, VCarve Pro and Mach3 to provide precise cutting and design tolerances for a nice custom professional look and function.
