Enclosure for the M2? Retain heat and contain smell...

Postby hybridprinter » Sun Mar 20, 2016 8:18 pm

What is a good enclosure for the M2? Needs to retain heat (for high temperature filaments and also contain the filament melting smell/airborne particles).

We are working on an enclosure but it will likely be at least a month before we are ready to post anything.

Interesting that MG is going to be offering an enclosure... does this mean that very high temp printing is coming??? :-) All metal hot ends (again), water cooled, PEEK/ULTEM capabilities... hmmm...

haha, well that is the trend (more high temp machines). Independent dual extruders would also be nice :D
