The STLs for the air filter on the other site seem to have broken geometry.

Anyone knows if printing these parts in PLA works or there are specific reasons why it'd have to be ABS?

Can you upload some additional photos of the finished enclosure? I'm keen to use your instructions and files, and I want to be clear on exactly how to put it together. A few extra photos of the finished enclosure, from different angles, particularly showing the filters in place and where the Ultimaker cable goes, would be extremely helpful!

<p>wdwms, please note that my instructions state it uses 2mm acrylic sheets. <br></p><p>joarb, you may print it out at any infill percentage you want, but here is my advice for all your 3d prints; <br></p><p>1. rough draft = 10% infill</p><p>2. has to look good or will be a mechanical non-weight supporting part = 20% infill</p><p>3. weight supporting part = 40% infill</p><p>4. weight supporting and mechanical part or part supporting a lot of weight = 80% fill</p><p>So, ask yourself if you'll be putting stuff on top of the hood (decorations, trophies, etc.) or will you leave it alone? I would print it out at 20% and not put anything on top of the 3d printer. You could even get away with just 10% fill if you print it out with 2 shells and try not to handle it too roughly. </p>

Sure. Give me some time to sift through the open source files of the Ultimaker Original and I'll adapt the design. I didn't design one for the original because I was afraid that they were going to phase out the Original but evidently they're not phasing it out as the Original could do some things that the UM2 cannot do, like dual nozzle printing.

This enclosure is brilliant. Is there a way to fit this design to an Ultimaker Original?

Please follow the link in the description to download and print out the air filter and pics of the setup. One air filter and fan is recirculating inside the enclosure. Another air filter and fan is an exhaust unit. The more filter media you have on the exhaust unit, the slower the exhaust, the higher the temperature. You can use a more powerful fan rated at higher CFM to push more air through a higher amount of activated carbon if you want. Here is the link again: http://www.3dprintfilemarket.com . Click on "ABS 3d Printer Nanoparticle and Chemical Exhaust Air Filter" and "Air Filter for ABS 3d printers". There's even nice pics for you there, too. Enjoy!
