Lulzbot Taz 5 Safety Enclosure Kit

 Assembly Instructions


This is an enclosure kit for the Lulzbot Taz 5 3D Printer.  Help regulate the temperature and reduce drafts for improved print quality and keep curious fingers (or paws) off of your print. 

Price includes free ground shipping in the continental US.

The kit includes an instruction sheet, the laser cut panels, and fasteners.  You can 3D Print your mounting cleat in your favorite color choice using the design here.  The Lulzbot Taz 5 3D printer is not included with the enclosure kit. 

Some of the features of the design that we think are really neat:

  • The front and the back are their own individual open boxes rather than doors.  They sit on the same table surface as the printer and are held in place with 3D Printed standoffs.  This gives you maximum room to reach in and access your part for removal.  
  • We have built in a location for mounting a 40mm fan to vent air from the chamber.  You would use this to manage fumes.  Some designs use things like HEPA filters to reduce films for things like ABS, HEPA filters are not rated for the ultrafine particles (UFP) that people are concerned about with ABS.  A better approach for managing these particles (aside from simply not using ABS) is to maintain a small pressure differential so that the enclosure is at a lower pressure than the room and particles do not flow out.  You would then tie this exhaust into exhaust leaving the room.  Don't want that feature?  Simply tape over the holes.  
  • That sweet laser engraved logo on the front.  You know you want that, right?  OK.  If you don't like it, we include a sticker in each order to cover it up...  or you could use your own.  
  • No glue is required for assembly.  However, acrylic can be readily solvent welded, so you can easily fix a piece if you break it.
  • No drilling, cutting, or other modifications to the printer itself are required.  

All of our enclosures have the option to add a BOFA HEPA air filtration system which is considered to be the industry leaders in filtration. The 3D PrintPRO range of extraction systems combine high capture performance with proven filter technology, ensuring the effective removal of hazardous particulate, gases/vapours and odours associated with 3D printing methods.

The BOFA PrintPro2 is lower print option without a return hose ideal for materials that do not need a warm build chamber.

The BOFA PrintPro3 is a higher end solution with a return hose and variable speed, making it ideal for ABS/ASA/Nylon printing.

To mount the hose to the enclosure you will need to print this hose adaptor to easily attach the BOFA to any of our enclosure designs. You can download them here.
