After receiving numerous requests, we’ve decided to add a flush-fit acrylic top panel (with slot for filament) as a complement for our popular Lulzbot Mini 3D printer enclosure kit. Installing the panel keeps the printer’s interior dust free and prevents foreign agents from falling inside. This panel attaches with the same laser cut panel clips as the rest of the enclosure making it easy to install and remove.
In our testing, we’ve seen an approximately 10 degree F increase in the build space over 4+ hour extended prints with the top plate installed. We recommend monitoring the build envelope temperature with an inexpensive meat thermometer and refrain from unattended printing when in use.
