Description

Your 3d printer is warping, emitting toxic fumes and producing terrible noise.

Product introduction of the box3d 3d printer enclosure

Box3d is a 3d printer enclosure, which controls the printing climate, extracts fumes and reduces noises. The product is now available to every maker after a successful Kickstarter campaign in which this product is 350% funded. The product can be ordered as a kit, or fully assembled. Clear instructions are available here. Furthermore, it can be upgraded with 3D printed parts and additional HEPA and Carbon filters. The printed parts are open source available at our download page

The box3d 3D printer enclose has an opening on the back for the power supply and filament insertion. The enclosure can easily be placed over the 3D printer. The box3d is properly sealed to the floor with a soft rubber. The transparent front door can be used for easy access to the 3D printer.

How do we reduce warping

Heating up the environment temperature of the 3D printer will reduce the temperature range that the thermoplastic material has to cool down during printing. This reduces warping at a critical stage. The object will cool down to room temperature when it is removed from the stable print environment. At this point, the object has a larger ability to withstand the internal stresses that are introduced in this cooling process. Basically, the moment of warping is delayed. This is particularly useful with plastic filaments with a relatively high melting temperature like ABS.

The temperature is controlled by measuring the temperature inside box3d and extracting hot air with the fan on the top until the required reference temperature is reached. The main board is Arduino based. We have left some spare electronic outputs for all the creative makers to come up with some awesome new upgrades. These can be connected to the mainboard and controlled with box3d. How about some colorful lights? some WiFi connection? Or a heater?  You can make it yourself and implement it to box3d.

Emissions and hazards of Ultra Fine Particles (UFP’s)  

It is well known that melting thermoplastics comes with toxic fumes. All fused deposition modeling (FDM) 3D printers are emitting ultrafine particles with a diameter less than 0.1 µm.
These small-sized particles are hazardous to human health since they are capable of penetrating through our lungs and into the bloodstream. Read more about it here. The toxicity of PLA especially increases when melting it to a temperature higher than 200 degrees Celsius. The pollution from thermoplastics is called Volatile Organic Carbons (VOCs). More info on VOCs and 3D printing can be found here.

Noise insulation

The noise is reduced with self-adhesive egg foam. This will make your 3D printer actual suitable for desktop operation.
