The enclosure was handmade and designed to heat the enclosure and scrub the air of any toxins. Air is sucked through a Hepa filter into a chamber to the right of the printer and through a carbon filter (grow up exhaust filter). The air is then drawn through a subfloor and past a reptile heat lamp. The temperature is thermostatically controlled. I print ABS at around 38C internal temperature. The electronics and particularly the PSU prefer cooler temps. I find the PSU on the prusa runs hot even not enclosed. The vent fans suck cold air from outside and directly blow cool air on the electronics. The PSU runs very cool using this method.
Dude.. This is Amazing! and exactly what i need... i use my anet a6 for ABS and have it enclosed in an IKEA LACK enclosure.. but you can DEFINITELY still smell the ABS when printing.. it worries me a bit.. so i would love to get something like this built so i'm no longer killing my roommate and myself -.-. Plus, getting my MK2S enclosed as well is a decent perk
