Makers and developers that are looking to build their very own 3D printer might be interested in a new 3D printer enclosure called BuzzBox that has been created by Apogee Science.
BuzzBox has been specifically designed to tackle the most common issues faced when 3D printing, and is the very first customisable 3D Printer enclosure that combines the storage of material and tools while keeping heat in and filtering outgoing air.
Watch the video below to learn more about the new BuzzBox 3D printer case that measures 12″ x 16″ x 11″ (Width x Height x Depth) and supports many small format 3D printers including the Afinia H479, Afinia H480, Tiertime Up Plus and Tiertime Up Plus 2 to name few. Its creators explain :
“Every 3D printer enthusiast has been there: warped prints, curling edges, cracking, fumes, noise, and heat loss. The list goes on and on! We asked, “How can we solve these problems?” “What if we could build something that stored materials and tools?” We wanted a product that looked great while being versatile, too. Thus, BuzzBox was born.
The passive filtering system operates by letting the heat generated from the printing process draw air through the inlet filter, located on the right side, through to the outlet filter, located on top. This system captures and reduces the fumes released outside of the chamber. It’s also designed to keep the internal temperature just right for perfect prints every time.
Attractive high air flow honeycomb filter holder assemblies secured with wingnuts. Utilizing activated carbon filters that are widely available, affordable and easy to replace. Multiple tool holders that can hold the things you use the most; like printer base plates (printing surface), caliper, screwdriver, plastic cutting chisels, side cutter, scraper and etc. “
The BuzzBox project is currently over on the Kickstarter crowd funding website looking to raise $7,500 in pledges to make the jump from concept to production.
