Wensleydale - A cabinet for 3D printers and CNC machines
In winter, my FDM 3D printers give poor results due to inability to keep the part warm. Also, my CNC mill is REALLY LOUD.
So I wanted a cabinet to cut down heat loss and/or noise.
A friend asked could I make a kit, so I wrote a program to generate a parts list at any size.
I wanted to name the project after the robot antagonist in "A Grand Day Out" but I discovered it was unnamed. So I made up a name.
How to make your cabinet
Enter your sizes into the SCAD file, and render the drawing.
The console window will now contain instructions for cutting and routing your pieces.
Consult the assembled view and attached photographs for instructions.
A brad nailer and PVA glue works well. Nails or screws work too.
It's possible to make the cabinet with just a jigsaw, drill and router. A table saw or other circular saw makes it painless.
If you have a CNC router that can cut plywood or MDF, then you could use that.
