Laser Cut Enclosure (side-panels)

Hey guys.

I mentioned in a previous post a bunch of useful ways to prevent part-warping.

previous post: http://forum.zortrax.com/index.php?/topic/463-printing-warp-free-w-zortrax-m200/

and one of those ways was to enclose the printer.

* It was brought to my attention that enclosing the whole thing (side + top) could result in a jammed hot-end. This hasn't happened to me yet, but just to be safe I would recommend only enclosing the sides (as shown).

I designed these side-panels to be laser-cut, and these magnet parts to be 3D printed.

The discs house a magnet, and are printed as two separate pieces.

The goal was to keep the whole thing as clean-looking as possible without modding the Zortrax itself.

I'd like to give credit to Julia for giving me the idea to use magnets. Thanks Julia!

For anyone (in the contiguous USA) interested in paying me to get laser-cut Acrylic:

please just PM me. (it will only happen if there are enough people interested, otherwise it's not cost-effective)

Thanks for checkin' it out.

Really nice job Josh!

Also made some laser-cut panels and made some hinges for them with pretty invinsible marks left if removed.

I use some M5-lockscrews that makes a minimal spot left behind when detached.

The hinge should be printed standing up WITHOUT support and 100% fan.

You could cut it out with a jig saw or use an online service like www.ponoko.com

I have a laser and can cut what ever you need Lon

If anyone is selling the cut pieces for this file please shoot me over an invoice through pm :)
