The startup PrintableAccessories has launched a Kickstarter campaign for a modular print housing. The associated 3D model files are designed for common FDM and resin printers.
According to PrintableAccessories, the design is particularly stable and does not require any support structures during 3D printing. The modules are easy to assemble, either with adhesive or a few fastening anchors.
The company provides alternative side panels made of acrylic or plastic filament to adapt to the respective printer model. Exhaust air systems can also be installed via a hole and duct system to reduce the release of harmful emissions.
According to PrintableAccessories, the modular system also includes numerous additional modules to customize functionality and appearance. A special feature is the directly printed hinges that do not require any assembly work.
Overall, the printable enclosure addresses a growing customer need: the modular approach enables a cost-effective enclosure alternative for home users, for example.
The Kickstarter campaign is still running for a few days, but the original target of 5,000 US dollars was exceeded after just a few days. The funding currently stands at over 200,000 euros. The project can be supported with 69 US dollars.
A simpler project for a 3D-printed print housing can also be found for free on the Printables portal.
